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.

Located on the caha pass is this awesome gift shop housed in a traditional cottage, we stopped to stretch our legs, not having time to visit to the heritage walk, never mind, next time.

Charming little place...probably very busy in season, but this was October. Nice walk around property, they have a map with history, and the prices for their merchandise was very good...less than the main towns. And their honeycomb ice cream was delicious
