Owner description: 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.

The most quaint roadside shop which is 3 time as big as it looks from the road. Huge selection of well priced goods, & lots of history in the store, a short stop, turned into an outing as there was so much to see, & such friendly shop owners.

We were driving back to Bantry after driving the Ring of Kerry and our 18 year old daughter asked us to stop on a whim. We are SO glad we did! All 4 kids loved it (9-18 years old) as did my wife and I. The video gives great history, the animals are a hoot and the views are striking. The structures have been restored/maintained magnificently. We recommend this highly if you find yourself driving this road. The shop has excellent wares for sale as well. If you don't have boots, don't stray off the paths though - it gets muddy.

A favourite stop off for lovely freshly baked scones and great coffee. In a beautiful scenic setting, Molly gallivans is the real deal as traditional Irish Home, with excellent value gift shop. Hosts cultural evenings, storytelling, an authentic Irish experience.

Such a lovely treat. We came here for lunch and a tour and it was absolutely delightful. The owner is charming, the food is amazing(literally the best vegetable soup and apple strudel I’ve ever eaten ) And Ice never encountered such friendly farm animals before:)
