The best Irish pubs in Phuket let you tuck into pub grub, throw a few darts, and sip on some old-fashioned ale during your vacation. Phuket is one of Thailand's top destinations for nightlife, where you can find a good mix of local and international pubs, particularly from Ireland, Australia, and the British Isles.

    As it's only natural to yearn for a little taste of back home, Phuket's Irish pubs can easily provide the same sort of vibe, hospitality and comfort meals from The Emerald Isle. You can also catch the latest sports matches and live music at these well-loved pubs.


    Irish Times

    Patong Beach

    The Irish Times Pub in Jungceylon Mall is one of the largest Dublin pubs in Phuket. The venue has stripped brick walls decorated with Gaelic decor, tobacco cupboards, tin beer slogans, and period photos. It's fully air-conditioned, but also has large ornamental ceiling fans for sunny days in Phuket. The drinks list focuses mainly on whiskeys, but you'll also find a few good wines and local beers at reasonable prices.

    Location: Jungceylon, 181 Rat-U-Thit 200 Pee Road, Patong, Kathu, Phuket 83150, Thailand

    Open: Daily from 11am to 1am

    The Drunken Leprechaun

    Patong Beach

    The Drunken Leprechaun Phuket is a quirky and novel setting in Patong that serves stouts and western pub grub. The pub has some really unique doormen – a pair of the namesake drunken leprechauns. The 2 jolly little people, wearing Kerry green knickerbockers and top hats, are not actually inebriated or guarding a pot of gold, but they do give a warm welcome and set the mood for the place.

    Location: 48 Ruamchai Road, Patong, Kathu, Phuket 83150, Thailand

    Open: Daily from 11am to 2am

    Phone: +66 (0)76 337 000


    The Green Man Pub


    The Green Man Pub offers a wide range of traditional British Isles pub grub in Phuket. Locals and expats often visit this Tudor-styled pub for its signature Sunday roast (served from 2pm to 10.30pm), but you can enjoy all-day breakfasts as well.

    Must-tries include fish and chips, mussels, bacon and clam chowder, steak and mushroom pie. It’s best to check out the restaurant's chalkboard menu in the pub for daily specials. The Green Man Pub also hosts pub quiz nights, along with semi-weekly wine tastings in its cellars.

    Location: 82/15 Moo 4, Patak Road, Chalong, Phuket 83130, Thailand
