About us



On Behalf of Richard and Siripan Johnson Welcome to our Website.
We are a Husband & Wife team who pride ourselves on creating a friendly and relaxed atmosphere for our customers to just sit back and enjoy the food that we prepare.

The name Thairish was a play on words between us as Siripan came to Ireland from Thailand and worked in a Country Club as Head Chef for 5 years. After friends & family (and myself) had repeatedly told Siripan that she was wasting her culinary gifts there and should open up her own premises she finally agreed. I was determined to back her all the way and so we both decided to make it a family business and just run with it. So with us both Thai & Irish it became the name we trade under and Thairish was born.

2 years later we made the decision to open a second cafe in Carrigtwohill, where we brought the same service, relaxed & friendly atmosphere and of course the great tasting food that our customers in Carrigaline have come to depend on us for since we opened in December 2010. However our own family grew and the demands of running two establishments left us little time with our children so we both made the decision to put family first and let one cafe go.

Now we have grown our business even more and added another 46 seats to our restaurant doubling its size so we can better cater to the needs of our customers.

We would like to thank the people of Carrigtwohill for accepting us into their community and also of course like to thank all our old customers in Carrigaline who have brought us smiles and laughter and helped to make our business a success.
