This bar has a mildly chaotic and laid-back atmosphere to it, and is an excellent choice for a relaxing lunch or dinner, but be advised that the dishes generally come in the very large size. The menu is mainly standard Western, with a few Thai dishes thrown in, and a range of snacks. Draught beer (including Guinness) is available, plus... More

Busy with ex-pats watching sports, service is un-friendly with a 'Can''t be bothered attitude' & extremely slow. Food not good, awfully greasy chips & the pies are not home-made in my book with more gristle than meat and a hard crust, Go to Archers for your English grub! Shame!

We indulged in a number of excellent beers including Guinness which was poured tgo perfection. The UN also provides multiple TV's airing the replays of any Western Sports including American Football for any fans that would like... More

I went to the UN Irish Pub in the afternoon to have their potato and cheese croquettes, a snack for 120 THB. The service was okay, the garden is nice as well, but the food was a total disappointment and is - for what you get - overpriced. What I got were five greasy croquettes and only three of them...

I stopped there for a pint, and it was very full, but I found a space on a bar stool. It took nearly ten minutes before I was offered a menu. Service staff were not overly friendly, and the WiFi didn't work. I'm here for six days, so I'll give it another try, as it's the only option in Chiang... More

Great home made food, I know it sounds like you would rather eat Thai food... But once you get bored of fish sauce and spicy food... Get a real good meal and maybe watch a rugby game. Enjoy...

Waste of time. I popped in for a meal yesterday. Watched some NBA. Service was agonisingly slow, they apologised for it. Food was awful. The veggie burger was average and come with a pile of deeply friend stuff. Seems like a place expats might hand out to connect. I couldn't quite see the point.

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.
