I've frequented a few Irish bars in my time but the Irish Embassy takes welcoming hospitality to new heights! Speaking of heights, what the owners lack in stature they make up for in friendliness and genuine caring about each customer. I had the penang and mash (what a culinary invention, don't knock it until you've tried it!) and my other... More

Walked down the road for Quiz Night. Apparently everyone else on the island had the same idea! The place was crowded. We had a great time and met new friends that sat at our table with us. Service was quite slow though - they need to have more "hands on deck" during quiz nights.

I don't have anything bad to say, the staff were friendly and the drinks weren't too expensive. For me it was just a standard Irish bar with a pool table and Irish menu. Go here if you're missing home!

Brilliant food at a good price for what you get. The bar has a great atmosphere and setup as well. We didn't have drinks here but you can get some brands from Ireland on draft.

Great bar for drinks, food, pool, TV sport, atmosphere, weekly quiz and the LEGENDARY name the tune night! The Anglo-Irish hosts know how to run a bar... Cheers/Sliante! PS get there early for the big Premier League matches (Man U, Liverpool, West Brom.)

Fantastic find on Lanta! Friendly staff, great food, excellent service, fun atmosphere and a real slice of home complete with darts and pool table in the new extension. We were in Lanta for 1 week and ended up coming back to the Irish Embassy 3 more times for drinks and meals. We even booked our Christmas dinner here and it... More

Went to Irish Embassy for a lazy afternoon of beers and pool. Great place to visit and if you do try the beef burger. It's in my opinion the best on the island. Staff is really friendly!

Darren and his team do a great job here. Although I only ate there once my friend had several meals and said all were excellent. It's doubled in size since last year with a pool table in situ now. The football draws a big crowd as does the Monday night quiz. The San Miguel light is a lovely refreshing beer... More
