Molly Gallivan’s cottage and traditional farm invites you to take a step back in time to experience the simple country lifestyle in rural Ireland before the days of electricity and modern conveniences. Molly’s enchanting cottage is over 200 years old and her farm is complete with animals, fowl and traditional farm machinery. Molly’s old Tea Shop is very unique in Ireland, here you will taste locally made foods cooked and baked in the traditional fashion. We also hold traditional Irish evenings at Molly Gallivan’s cottage, these are nights of Irish food, music, song, dance and story telling, re-enacting the old customs that took place in Irish homes. Advanced booking is required for our Traditional Irish Evenings please contact us for availability and prices.

Stephen is very entertaining with the history of Molly and how she made Whisky or ponti and knitting to feed her children. There is a short film about it and the farm with all the different animals and cottage etc well worth a look

Excellent stop. Great views from the property and walking among the animals was a real highlight. Got a tip from a couple we met at a pub and it was spot on.
