A great place to learn the hardships of life in the 1800. A widowed woman with 7 children worked hard to feed them by making poitin (moonshine)! Hooray for strong women!! Stephen and his family are keeping this cottage and lifestyle alive of us to explore.

Wonderfully authentic insight laced with superb Irish wit. Fantastic back story on how a woman provided for her family and further back into history. Locally grown food for lunch - good tucker very reasonably priced. Genuinely motivated sfaff who relish the chance to interact. Do it.

Great hen party activity!! Group of 11 of us went here over the weekend & had great craic. Really enjoyable way to spend a few hours. Poitin tasting & Irish coffee making were the highlights but thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing. We had our hen dress up as a cow for the duration & brought our own bubbly. One of... More

We did a stop here at Molly's farm. The walk is nice and informative. I think for kids it's probably great fun. Worth a visit!

This was the most fun thing we did on our trip! It was so wonderful to get a real insight into how people lived many years ago! I learned a ton and we stayed for the evening activity of dinner and a re-creation of an evening at Molly Gallivans. Don't miss this. It was educational, fun, entertaining and most of... More
