Overview

O'Brien's bar is a beautiful country pub set in the lovely surroundings of the Ballyhoura mountains. It is most famous for its greatest customer, the Actor Oliver Reed (best known for his roles in Oliver Twist and Gladiator). It was Oliver Reed's final wish before he died to be buried within view of his favourite pub, O'Briens bar in Churchtown.

A nice pub old style but cozy. There is a pool table and dartboard and a foxy fireplace for the winter. Staff are lovely and helpfully.
