An evening not to be missed during a visit to Kenmare. A "course" in Pontin making followed by a delicious Irish meal and an Irish storytelling evening around a blazing fire in Molly Gallivan's house. An evening of laughter, Irish music and dance - a...More

We stopped by Molly Gallivan's as a part of a tour group. The owners have done a good job of preserving some history of the site and the area. A tour guided by the owner is not only informative but also very entertaining. There is...More

If you’re in the area don’t miss this. You’ll get a feel of the harsh living conditions. Take the walk through the farm and up the hill by collecting a pass key in the shop. Leave an appropriate donation in the box when you return...More

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.
