We ate breakfast and dinner here, at the little garden at the back of the pub. Very nice environment for a quiet meal. The home-made sausages were very good. Value for money.

Location is ideal. Food is very good. I ate outside in the back garden and ordered the dory fish and chips. The slab of dory was HUGE. Lightly battered with a delicious tarter sauce. I give them both an A. Could not eat all the fish. Took it home and had a fish filet sandwich the next day. On the... More

After traveling round Asia for a number of weeks my partner and I were craving some home made chips and gravy and U.N Irish pub delivered us just that. We ended up here 2 nights during our 4 night stay in Chiang Mai sitting in the garden enjoying some beer, cocktails and a delicious bowl of chips and gravy. The... More

Had the cheeseburger, the burger was average along with the overly greasy onion rings nothing to shout about so 3 stars is a fair mark.

I've been a regular customer at the UN Irish over the many years I've been coming to Chiang Mai and have always found almost everything about this place excellent: the food (Western and Thai), the environment - especially in the garden, and on this latest trip, incredibly good service from well-trained, friendly, effective,long-serving, Thai staff. So you're asking where's the... More

Stopped by before going to the Sunday Walking Street Market and sat on the patio in the back. Great service and atmosphere. It's a little oasis in the midst of the busy streets around the moat.

Stoped in on a Monday night and ordered the fish and chips as well as a cottage pie. Back garden dining area was very nice but service was slow. Food was average, the cottage pie lacked any real flavor and needed a good dose of HP sauce to make up for it. The fish was average and unremarkable. In an... More

Second visit to this bar/pub. Food amazing. The Irish Stew was fantastic. The beef just fell apart. The dish was well seasoned and very tasty. The staff were friendly and attentive and the garden had a lovely laid back atmosphere. Reasonable prices. Would thoroughly recommend.

Description
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.
