Overview

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.

Visited here as part of a tour and the moonshine demo was funny and informative. Reasonably priced gifts and souvenirs too. Clean toilets and decent coffee !

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:)

I already answered the question..see above. BUT I can also say that the scenic shots all around the place is also worthy of a stop even if the shop is not open.
