Molly Gallivan’s Cottage & Traditional Farm

Experience the rustic and simple lifestyle of rural Ireland before the days of electricity and modern conveniences. This enchanting cottage is over 200 years old, and is home to various animals, such as fowls. Learn about the life of Molly Gallivan, a resourceful widow who supported her seven children by subsistence farming, weaving, and dealing in poitín (moonshine). Interact with country traditions and old-fashioned farm machinery. Visitors may take a tour of the farm, enjoy a typical meal and even take part in an Irish "ball night".
