Best pint in town, always has the major sporting events on a raft of screens throughout the pub and great if you fancy a bet while watching (Paddy Power next door). Tournament level pool table and darts if you've a bit of a competitive streak ;-)

We visited The Derreen yesterday while in tullow. Fabulous outdoor dining space on such a beautiful day. Food was absolutely beautiful and nothing was a problem when ordering. We were well catered for. Few pints washed down and my sister enjoyed the Guinness. Staff were great in particular Nicola. Thank you all for a very enjoyable visit.
