The Irish Embassy – Krabi

Genuine Pub in Klong Muang

The Irish Embassy has taken over Paddy’s Pub, a long established (opened in 2006) venue in Klong Muang, a peaceful area along Krabi's western coast. Located between two world-class resorts – Nakamanda and Sofitel Krabi Phokeethra – The Irish Embassy is one of the only places in Klong Muang offering both dining and a lively nightlife scene.

Run since 2016 by a the same team that opened the famous Irish Embassy in Koh Lanta, The Irish Embassy in Klong Muang is a stylish yet casual place at which visitors can enjoy a hearty meal, watch major sport events, and play a dart or pool game in a friendly atmosphere. The front garden terrace is also the perfect spot to watch the sun set over the Andaman Sea through the coconut trees dispatched along the beach road.

Viewed from outside, The Irish Embassy takes on a mediaeval British look: built with grey granite stone and featuring dark wooden windows and door frames, it would'nt too look out of place in the middle of the English countryside. Inside, the pub boasts vintage pub décor: dimly-lit, framed illustrations hanging on white-washed walls, wooden beams, columns and furnishing, apart from the average 30º Celsius heat and the coconut trees on the other side of the road, you could be anywhere in the United Kingdom.

The atmosphere is friendly and casual: unobtrusive rock music (AC/DC, Bon Jovi, Van Halen to name a few) rocks the place while punters play a game of pool or dart, or just enjoy a drink while watching Manchester City beating West Ham in English Premier League on one of the tellies displayed around the dining room.

Regarding food, the culinary talents of the chef becomes apparent after the first bite; The Irish Embassy menu hosts an excellent selection of pub grub (English breakfast at 140 baht, chicken & mushroom pie plus side-dish at 295 baht, or Ploughman’s lunch at 260 baht) but also plays on the international cuisine field with a cool choice of Mexican (chicken enchiladas at 270 baht), Japanese (Wagyu beef with side-dish at 350 baht), North American (classic burger plus side-dish at 260 baht), and Thai dishes (chicken cashew nuts at 190 baht).

Three dishes are specially recommended: chicken tikka burger (when the United States of America meet India) at 260 baht; the traditional fish & ships (imported cod filet in beer batter, served with garden peas and homemade tartar sauce) at 350 baht; and last but not least: Thai masaman curry (Bangkok style) at 260 baht. The drink-list could easily satisfy any British citizen missing home as apart from the usual suspects, it features draught Guinness and Magners ciders.
