On quite a hot night I came here for dinner, they have a garden at the back where it was cool enough to have your food in relative comfort. I had the cottage pie, standard pub fare, it was fine and pleasantly served up, not much more to say I would go back again.

Decor doesn't look much but we thought we'd give it a go and I'm made up we did! We went for dinner, soup was amazing and so was the sausage and mash. We ended up going for breakfast one morning too and had a full Irish breakfast which was gorgeous. We then went for St Patricks day and they had... More

The food here is amazing we were looking for some British food and we were not disappointed. There is lots to choose from on the menu (western and Thai) we opted for a pie with all the trimmings and it was delicious lovely little garden to sit in too.

This place, food and service is great. You get what you want - proper home cooked food every time. I love Thai food but can only eat so much. I came here with my father a couple of weeks ago and would come in every other day. All the food was amazing and i was excited to see that the... More

Tasty meals, and simple service. Nothing too amazing, but a relaxed setting for an evening. The pub is upstairs so not much of a pub feel downstairs.

Ok Chiang Mai is a hot place especially if you are walking around the city during the day so anywhere that serves cold beer in cool surroundings has to be good. The UN Irish pub is such a place. Whilst it could do with an internal upgrade and an injection of anything resembling friendly service. The bar itself is most... More

This is a great pub that pours Guinness the right way! The pub has an enjoyable patio to drink a beer! The pub also shows football, basketball, and soccer matches.

Cool spot, dive bar, pretty chill. Good fresh fairly priced cocktails. Back patio is really nice and pretty quiet considering busy street outside.

I just realised that for all the times I have visited the UN Irish Pub I have never given it a review, but I must love it because I keep coming back and recommending to people, or meeting them for an excellent meal. So here is my much overdue review. My first meal was the fish and chips. Absolutely brilliant... More

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.

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.
