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.

Fascinating look at what life was like on a traditional Irish farm in the early 20th century. The new owners have done a nice job of preserving many aspects of rural Irish family life,with a special focus on self-sufficiency.

When this stop on our tour with Back-Roads was announced, I though; Here we go. Another stop at a touristy stereotypical Irish tourist site. Even the name, Molly Gallivans, reminded me of the faux-Irish names of pubs in the US. But I was wrong. Thomas...More
