We stayed in Phutara Lanta Resort and the manager Rob was English and told us if we liked roast dinners and football we should go to the irish Embassy. The atmosphere was really good and friendly. The food was amazing, sausage rolls and roast dinner was something we had not had for a long time while travelling so it was... More

We spent 2 out of our 3 nights at The Irish Embassy and were not sorry at all. The service is top notch and speedy too. The selection of drinks from around the world is wonderful and you are treated like an old and dear friend. Although we didnt order anything off the menu as we happened to come for... More

The Irish is fun on any night, but it's extra lively on Mondays, when they have pub quiz. The questions are pretty skewed toward knowledge of the UK, so get some Brits on your team if you want any chance of winning. In any case, it's a great time, especially with the local expats heckling the quiz master. The Irish... More

I had to come here to review the massaman curry. I loved it so much that it's been hard to order the same thing in other restaurants and be disappointed. It was a good portion, filling, and delicious! My boyfriend got some fried rice and was jealous of my meal although he enjoyed his as well. the beers were nice,... More

Very good western style bar. Plenty of TVs showing everything from AFL to World Cup. The beer was cold, the beef was Australian, and everyone was very friendly. Glad we found it.

I'm finally getting round to writing up all my reviews during my 2 month stay on Koh Lanta and the Irish Embassy Bar certainly deserves its recent Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence award and sets the standard in the region. Great for watching sport, loved the home cooked food including the Burger, Sunday Roast and fish and chips and the drinks... More

We went here last night to watch the Germany vs Brazil game which started at 3am. Me and my girlfriend expected the place to be empty, however it was the complete opposite. There were loads of people in there watching the football and the owner and his staff were really accommodating. I would highly recommend this place if you're looking... More

As a personal rule, I typically avoid Irish bars at all costs. I learned years ago that they are usually the most expensive and least interesting places in any city that everybody rushes to. I've been on Ko Lanta now for about four evenings and have found myself here at the Irish Embassy each evening. It is a great atmosphere... More
