Any time I'm passing here I always stop with the kids for homemade ice-cream the owners are very friendly and the shop has lots to offer, If your in the area it's well worth the visit. A real gem of a place.

After spending time looking around the well stocked shop we had the film show... More

The linens and knitted goods are outstanding. Along with edibles such as chocolates mixed with Irish whiskey! How could a stop at this place be a bad move. Enjoy!

And order an Irish coffee to take with you on the tour. Pet the donkey. Feed the pig. Then buy a sweater. You're day will be made.

What a fantastic experience. Please reopen this. Nothing compares to the magic that you have created. To see Santa coming down the chimney. Walking through the farm. See the work shop. Fantastic video, singing etc. Just loved it. Please bring it back.

I had the pleasure of visiting this 'Hidden Gem' with a tourist group from the U.S.! Our host Steven was fantastic explaining to the visitors the history of Molly's 'sheebeen' and how life was in rural Kerry when he was growing up. At the end of an amazing tour of the farm, the group were introduced to 'Uisce Beata' aka... More

On a cold, rainy morning we visited Molly Gallivan's Cottage and Farm and enjoyed the coziness of her little stone cottage, where we warmed up with a steaming cup of tea and a freshly baked scone. There was also a great selection of Irish woolens (sweaters, scarves, hats, etc), jewellery, and other handmade items for purchase in the cottage. The... More
