O’Callahan's was founded with the values of our forefathers and the rich traditions of great Irish pubs, by local Mocksville resident Dan Reynolds.
The name O’Callahan's comes from Dan’s mother’s side of the family. Darby Callahan, who was Dan’s great, great, great, great grandfather was born in Cork, Ireland in 1717. He came to America as a young boy and settled with relatives in Halifax, VA. He had left Ireland due to the starvation conditions during the great potato famine to find a better life. Most of the Callahans reside in Maryland today.
Dan comes from a large family of nine brothers and sisters. Two of Dan’s sisters, Piper and Elizabeth reside in Mocksville as well. They were all brought up with the same values as Darby, maintaining close relationships and valuing time with family and friends. Dan also has a large family and is the proud husband and father of five children, several of whom are very active in local sports. You can usually catch Dan and his wife Beth cheering on the teams at the games. Today Dan loves welcoming as his guests both familiar faces and newcomers to O’Callahan's. Everyone is made to feel as welcome as family.
O’Callahan's Publick House is dedicated to great people like Darby, who worked hard to have a better life and who knew the true value of family and friends. Also, we honor the rich Irish traditions of daily life built around the local pub.
In Ireland, traditionally, the church, pub and football club were the primary social outlets. People would typically converge at the local pub after Mass or a football match, where they exchanged stories and had fun (or ‘craic’ as they would say)! Today the pub is often busy with families after the local sports games. They enjoy great stories and the same family atmosphere that Darby must have enjoyed in his youth.
In order to capture that warmth here at O’Callahan's, we offer a stunning interior with exposed brick walls, pressed copper like ceilings and rich woodwork at the bar and fr
