O'Driscolls Pub, Reenascreena Cross in beautiful West Cork is in the hands of the fourth generation of the O'Driscoll Family. It was first established in 1855 and has recently been rebuilt to a high standard and must be one of the finest country pubs around.
Outside the door, you will find a monument in memory of the great fenian, Jeremiah O'Donovan Rossa and the casket in which his coffin was brought from America is also on the premises. This famous fenian was born in Reenascreena and O'Driscolls pub was formerly known as "The Rossa Tavern" because the O'Driscoll family are descendents of O'Donovan Rossa.
The pub is now run by John and Helen O'Driscoll who both have vast experience of the pub trade.
