“The Emerald Bar - Bo Phut, Koh Samui.”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

We had a ball in the Emerald Irish Bar and what a location, situated on the beach front of the village, my two children were very content playing on the beach below as we would watch them from the balcony above, taking in the panoramic views of sea and Koh Phangan in the distance. The bar is slap bang in the middle of the village, all be it along the beach and the street was full of traditional shops and quaint restaurants. The manager James and his staff made us feel right at home and good fun too! Good music and great food, the ribs were the business, a must if you go to Fishermans Village, Koh Samui.

“Already booking for next year!”
Reviewed April 14, 2012

My wife and I stayed in one of the appartments above the pub for 3 weeks and loved it. Modern appartment with great kitchen, 2 large bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Nice balcony and right on the beach of beautiful fishermens village, Bohput.
Large sliding doors opened up the whole facade and also gave great sound proofing at night when the pub was busy.
The pub is a favorite of mine after living in samui for many years. Good Guinness, lively atmosphere, all the sports and bands on a friday night. Great food and the host Jimmy and his team really do provide an ambience that you look forward to joining again as soon as you leave.
I wish I could stay longer but thats the sign of a great Holiday I guess.
Thanks 'The Emerald' team

“Great place to eat and relax”
Reviewed May 2, 2011

Excellent fish and chips. Tommy McNulty was performing several nights when we visited the bar - excellent singer with several enjoyable original tunes as well as many popular hits. Staff was very attentive and pub was kept in very clean condition. Great views overlooking the beach, as well as super location on Fisherman's village walking street. Great place for a drink, a quick meal, or just hang out for the evening.

“Best Sunday Roast on the Island...Gravy to die for!!”
Reviewed April 28, 2011

Great pub food cook by Chef Steve Green who has a love and passion for food. If you are over Thai food and just want homemade comfort food this is the place to find it. Burgers, Ribs, and steak pie among the classics on the menu. Sunday roast is brilliant and the gravy....well what can i say!
