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.

I highly recommend seeing this traditional farm, which I believe is the only remaining working farm of its type. It is picturesque, and the owner gives a hilarious tour!

Beautiful location with a full meal (although don't like lamb) but the best part was the "American Homecoming". It was an audience participatory show involving the son who returned from America in the early 1900s after a 30 year absence.
