We had an amazing time at Molly Gallivan’s with a home cooked meal of Irish Stew, followed by illegal Poitin Whiskey! This was a priceless experience that I suggest everyone who comes to Ireland enjoy!

This is a very enjoyable, educational attraction for both adults and kids of all ages. Our 15 year old son really enjoyed feeding the farm animals. It is also a very beautiful, scenic part of the country.
