Honestly this is a fab place for blokes who want to watch sport on bar stools and talk in detail about the very important subject of a game of 2 halves. When I went there a very charming man from Leeds/ Bangladesh gave me the run down on the England v Bangladesh cricket in the telly, I felt like I... More

This bar plays all kinds of sporting events on their TV's and the Manager Herman is a wonderful ambassador of the area and things to do.

The UN Irish Pub is a popular hang-out for tourists and expats and offers wonderful British food, including freshly baked bread and pies. The Guiness Beef pie is not to be missed. It has a nice garden outside and a sports bar upstairs for those of you who like watching particular games. Highly recommended as a meeting place.

I suppose if you have been away from home for a while you may be looking for something familiar. Personally we either haven't been away long enough or just like local food. The garden bar setup was nice and relaxed. Great place for expat (anything) to step away from Asia for a while. Sports TV if you are so inclined.... More

A lovely, airy bar which is a great size and nice beer garden. I tried the Cornish pasties which was lovely and the shepherds pie which wasn't to my taste but I'm sure would be enjoyed by others. It shows lots of sports and seems to attract a lot of expats. A nice relaxed friendly bar.

I love the UN Irish Pub and have been coming here for years. They do great food, have a really nice beer garden (which is sadly a rarity in Chiang Mai), and they show a ton of sports there, with 4 TVs, which enables them to show multiple events. Warning though, big events can see the place become intolerably crowded.... More

We came for the EPL and stayed for the food. Reasonable beer prices (105bht), friendly staff, good views of the large TVs and one amazing red bean and lentil burger. I should further highlight the food. We had the aforementioned burger, chicken wings, carbonara and chips. All good pub food and plenty of options (including vegetarian) on the menu. Max... More

HE U.N. IRISH PUB was originally established in August 1992 by Rosemary O'Connell (from County Monaghan) and her husband Daeng Putthawiteree (from Chiang Mai).

Opening as The Crusty Loaf Bakery it quickly developed into a restaurant specializing in Western food and a local venue to come and meet new and old friends, usually over a few drinks. When licensing laws (yes they do exist) required that premises selling alcohol advertise as such, Daeng put up a chalkboard saying The Irish Pub. In 1998, Rosemary returned to Ireland as she wished her children to have an Irish education. Daeng remained but brought a new partner into the business, an Australian - Alexander (Sandy) Cullen. In 2001, after 9 years, Daeng left to open a new establishment. Since then, various owners from various nationalities (including German, Karen, English, Thai, Australian and Kiwi) have been involved with the running of the business. As none of these folk have been Irish, it was decided in 2003 (over a few drinks) to add The United Nations to the name, thus giving the establishment the full name of The United Nations Irish Pub, Restaurant and Crusty Loaf Bakery, or The U.N. Irish Pub for short.

The current partners are Australian, Thai and Kiwi but the intentions of the pub remain the same, that is, to provide a casual Western/Thai atmosphere with good food and drinks at a reasonable cost.
