Didn't eat here, so no comments on the food. I enjoyed a cold pint and some fast wifi here though. A nice break from all the Thai restaurants if you're feeling in the mood for an English style pub.

We ate here last night and had a pizza and some of the hand-cut chips - which I was really looking forward to. What a disappointment. The pizza was cold and the only crispy because it was stale. The chips were soggy and also seemed reheated rather thann freshly fried, we left most of it,

This is a nice place to have drinks, beer, or wine. It also has delicious western food if you are tired of eating Thai food. There are numerous large screen TVs often showing popular sporting events. But I'm not a sports fan and I still like the UN Irish Pub. Nice cozy ambience and a nice break from the rest... More

Ok, you've been sweating it out through the jungles and now you have a few days in Chiang Mai....need some really cold beer, a good plate of poached eggs, and a few hours of hometown sports. BINGO! Un Irish spits the Tilley. Rugby? Yep. Broncos!? Yep. That soccer thing? Yep, that too. Easy to find, open often.....go!

I have come here a few times for rugby, football, and American football matches. They post what games they'll be showing on their website so you can check ahead of time. The service is prompt and the kitchen is fairly quick. I've enjoyed everything I've had off of their menu and the big standout is the shepherd's pie. I'm sure... More

On our walk back from Wat Chedi Luang we came upon this place and popped in for lunch. Good EU beer selection. Had a curry from N. Thailand was SO GOOD. Great lunch spot! Cinnamon rolls we grabbed for breakfast the next day were out of this world!

We stayed nearby the U.N. Irish pub and used it a few times for breakfast and a cocktail before going to our hotel. Staff are friendly and the long island teas are delish!

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

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.
