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

We dropped in here for a drink one evening after dinner and stayed for a few more. There was a good selection of drinks that are well priced and there were a few characters in there that we had some great fun with. A great evening overall. Can't comment on the food as we didn't eat there but there seemed... More

Went here twice with my boyfriend. There is a massive range of food, but both times we are Thai food, which was delicious. The service was amazing and they were really attentive. They have a nice patio area which is always busy and a great atmosphere - would defiantly recommend !

I popped in there last weekend whilst out shopping for books in the old town, and had a nice pint of Guinness. The place was very quiet but that's to be expected at 4pm, I suppose. Friendly staff, clean, no complaints.

Not the pub. Chances are I will never go to the pub as its not my thing. The bakery on the other hand is so my thing. I hate sweet bread and so much Asian bread is sweet. Today I bough a small white loaf, a large whole meat loaf and two large white baguettes and I am thrilled. I... More

Actually,Irish pub has also very good food for lunch or dinner even if you don`t like to drink beer. A good place to relax from Thai food one day and... More

This is s bit of an institution in Chiang Mai, not really an Irish Pub but a western sports bar with a mix of Thai and western. I've been twice. Once for breakfast - smashing nosh and great pastries. Once for supper with a colleague - fantastic onion rings and a very serviceable steak sandwich (in their delicious toasted bread);... More

They have a really lovely back patio area, but when we arrived it was full. However, when it was clear we had wanted to sit there, the owner and some of the staff moved a table and two chairs from another part of the restaurant, without us even asking. We really appreciated it and spent a wonderful evening here. They... 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.
