Molly Gallivan's Cottage & Traditional Farm, Kenmare

4.7
Molly Gallivan's Cottage & Traditional Farm provides a chance to explore Irish farm life before electricity. Visit the cottage, a small yet imposing stone structure, to understand the difficulties and limitations of life lived without electricity and other amenities. Follow the traditional farm walk, which takes you past the house well—where water was drawn for drinking and food preparation—and through the garden to see where much of the household food crop was grown. The tour continues through the oat and barley fields, the farmyard, and to Molly's still where she distilled moonshine whiskey from the barley and potatoes that she grew. Also see the famine ruin, a monument to the Great Famine of the 1840s, which killed hundreds of thousands, and the Neolithic stone row, which is part of a druidic sun calendar. You can also visit the craft and gift shop and the tea room and barn restaurant.
