About
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.

Lovely enjoyable visit with delicious lunch.
Jul 2021 • Family
Visited on Saturday 31st July, with my wife and young son. Had gorgeous lunch of homemade Leek & Potato Soup with brown bread, followed by delicious Apple Crumble and ice cream. Bought a couple of locally made candle stick holders and visited farm, where my son fed some lambs with bottle of milk provided by cottage as well as feeding an array of chickens and ducks, with feed also provided by cottage. Farm visit is free with voluntary contribution requested and definitely worth the time to explore. Overall a wonderful lunch and enjoyable experience made all the more special by friendly helpful owners and staff. Looking forward to visiting again.

Absolutely fantastic hospitality from Frances and Stephen. We were walking The Beara Way, took a detour for lunch in the pouring rain and Stephen and Frances could not have been more helpful. We had a delicious bowl of soup and amazing apple crumble and they went out of their way to help us with our onward journey. Many thanks for your kindness.

The best unplanned stop of our trip!

Wow, Molly’s was such an unexpected delight for us! We stumbled upon it while travelling from Bantry to Portmagee. The old farmhouse is just so beautiful and we originally stopped just to get a snack from the tea rooms. Unknown to us there was a lovely gift shop and a farm walk around which we took full advantage of! I was so delighted to have a cuddle with the lambs and donkeys and the story of Molly was an interesting insight into how people used to live. The whole experience was so lovely and the scenery just stunning. I was so delighted with patting the lambs that they even gave me a bottle to go back up and give them some milk which was such a delight! Even as someone that grew up on a farm! Afterwards we had tea and the best ever scones and guiness cake outside. The staff were just so lovely and the whole experience amazing. A quick food stop turned into the best unplanned 1.5 hours of our day. It was just such a lovely experience and we are so glad we had the time to make the pit stop. Definitely one to check out if you are in the area!

Highly recommend for a day out

Molly Gallivan’s is on the lovely Wild Altlantuc way between Glangariff & Kenmare. It’s situated surrounded by lush green mountains. There’s no entry fee per se but you give something at the end. You’ll get an idea about living in the olden days. There are farm animals around that kids can feed. While you can take in a buggy no problem the push uphill can be a bit exhausting- you will however be rewarded with stunning views. You start and finish the self guided walk in the shop where you’ll be able to purchase not only souvenirs but Irish crafted items. Small snacks & drinks can be purchased as well. All in all, well worth a stop
