The Drunken Leprechaun Phuket

Irish Bar and Restaurant in Patong Beach

The Drunken Leprechaun Phuket serves a good taste of the Emerald Isle in a quirky and novel setting, making it a great complement to the Hooters and Hard Rock restaurants just along the road in Patong Beach. It boasts a great range of stouts and western pub grub, making it one of the most Irish of the city’s choice of Irish bars.

The pub has some really unique doormen – a pair of the namesake drunken leprechauns! The two jolly little people dressed up in Kerry green knickerbockers and top hats are not actually inebriated or guarding a pot of gold, but they do provide a warm welcome and set the mood for the place well.

Inside, you will find a long and narrow room, with a bar down one side serving draught beers, stouts and ciders. This includes the quite fruity own-brand pale ale, costing 150 baht for half a pint. Naturally, it being an Irish bar, The Drunken Leprechaun Phuket also serves draught Guinness, although it also has some unusual tastes of home on the drinks menu, including Black & Tan (a beer cocktail made from Guinness and Kilkenny pale ale) and shandy (beer and Sprite).

Sitting in the upstairs section of the restaurant still allows you to see down to the musicians playing western classics on the ground floor, as well as offering a pool table and a selection of booths with live sports showing on large flat-screen TVs. The décor is welcoming and friendly, though it is typical of Irish bars around the world, featuring examples of drinking humour (“Here’s to being single, drinking doubles and seeing triple!”) and Guinness posters.

The Drunken Leprechaun Phuket perhaps takes the stereotypes of Irish bars to extremes, making it really more of an “Oirish” bar. While it is all in the name of fun and part of what gives the place its charm and atmosphere, it can be excessive in some cases.

The food menu is a good example, where simple dishes like Scotch eggs, onion rings and English breakfast get unnecessarily Oirished names, like Irish Leprechaun Cannonball eggs, Onion Rings of Kerry and Leprechaun Hangover Breakfast respectively. However, the quality is good and, with prices ranging around the 250-300 baht per dish mark, it is easily enough to overlook the flamboyant names and enjoy a filling meal.

As tastes of home go, The Drunken Leprechaun Phuket is one of the better ones, with competitive pricing and showing a genuine appreciation for the cuisine of the Old Country. It isn’t particularly common, for example, to get your French fries (or chips, as they are correctly called) served with onion gravy!
