Beautiful scenery as we were driving from Kenmare to Glencardiff. Stopped at Molly's to enjoy the view and were entranced by what we found at Molly Gallivan's Cottage and Traditional Farm. After exploring, we decided we had to go back for the promised evening entertainment....More

Very poor. Tea rooms? Nothing to eat. Got greeted by a cow, pig and 3 hens who wanted to follow us. Too close for comfort. Exterior very inviting.

We love to stop into Molly Gallivan's when we are visiting Kenmare. It will give you a good idea of the way it was back in the day. Cute shop with woolens and you can get some tea and a bite to eat also.

We stayed there and walked around. In general it is free to walk along the lanes in the garden. Nearby down The Valley is also Stone fort and stone ring etc. This is a couple of Euro. For us 10 Euro for the whole family.

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.
