Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact

We are a small family run business operating since 2013. Our local chef, Pooky, provides authentic local cuisine and quality western food using family recipes from Thailand and Ireland. We opened Pooky's Place as a restaurant in late 2013 and evolved into a THAIRISH Pub. In late 2016 we took the opportunity to move to a bigger location and named it Pooky O'Leary's. Customers can enjoy food,drinks, music, live sports and free pool, wifi, darts. As the club house for the local D.M.F.C. team we are proud to have 2 trophy shelves. As of mid 2018 we are still growing into the new place. Last updated 24/5/2018

A little bit out of the centre but a quick trip by Tuk Tuk is well worth it. Friendly atmosphere and good food with a selection of Western and Thai food. Visit early evening is recommended.

10/10! We wandered into this restaurant from our nearby hotel, and were super glad we did. Super friendly, fast service, cold drinks, and delicious burgers and homestyle fries.

Stopped here because I read the burger was good and it did not disappoint. For 300bhat it is a a bargain not to missed, with homemade fries. Just what I needed as a break from Thai food.

Our burger cost us around $10, expensive for Thailand and was not authentic. Tastes sweet? Just not so tasty. Fries were also not great... service was good and beer was cold. Just not happy with dropping $25 on a meal that wasn’t very satisfying. I...More

Clearly they have ambition to serve great food but the thai heritage shows and let's them down a bit. The burgers are good but the beef patties are too thick and it has a thai flavor that does not fit the burgers. Great and friendly...More
