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.

We had a great time learning about Molly Gallivan's story, our guide was too funny and had such great knowledge, loved all the animals and especially Guiness the pig! Would highly recommend this stop if in Glengarriff.

Nice format for seeing how farming and life was conducted over time many years ago. Prehistoric things incorporated into the tour as the site has been occupied for a very long time.
