Molly Gallivan's old home is famous not only for its fine traditional cuisine, but for the history of the farm it sit on. Molly was famous for her homemade brew and while that is no longer available, good wine and beer is available to go with the Irish tucker. A good range of Irish gifts and gear is also available...

This is a nice stop to get some great photos and a coffee. I'm not sure if there is food here, we just wanted coffee and pictures. There is an old truck out front that looks like it probably still runs. there are druid statues carved from wood. Across the street is a place to get nice pictures of a... More

We stumbled across this attraction by accident, it has a good shop to purchase local gifts etc, and a small coffee shop attached to it, we stopped for coffee and found there was much more to see. The visitor centre gives a flavour of life from times gone by, hard times. We all enjoyed the walk around the site, a... More

A great little stop. Visitors are free to wander through the small farm area to visit the animals, see the reconstructed poitin still or simply admire the views. An informative video tells Molly Gallivan's story and sets the farm in historic perspective. The farm house contains a quality gift shop and basic tea room. The best part was there is... More

What a treat to happen upon this delightful place. The couple who owns Molly's are charming and have done an amazing job of making sure the history of this little cottage will live on. We took the tour, bought a jacket and had tea with complimentary Poitin. One of our favorite memories of our trip.

What a fun and friendly cottage. The traditional Irish dinner and entertainment about an American Homecoming was great. We went back the next day and hiked the farm followed by delicious scones with coffee. Thanks

Mollys is fantastic conception. I am sure it is as authentic a glimpse into the life of a widowed, poor Irish country woman of that era as you could find anywhere . There is no specified charge required but a donation jar is to hand as you leave. I would recommend a vist. Kids would like it as there are... More

Something to do on the way to the next town. We didn't want to drive the Ring of Kerry so this was an option.

Situated on the Kenmare to Glengariff Road Molly Gallivan's is well worth a stop for a welcoming cup of tea and sustenance. There are historical walks which are not arduous and great effort has been expended by the owners to reproduce farming as it was in the 19th Century and the living standards pertaining to the time. Thoroughly recommend a... More
