II came across Molly Gallivan's Traditional Cottage & Farm completely by accident as I was on my way to another attraction, but what I discovered was probably one of County Kerry's biggest attractions, such is the magic of this job. This attraction has been honoured, by us awarding it our heritage hidden gem award, and for more information on our different hidden gem awards you can flip back to the front of this book. Molly Gallivan's visitor centre really does show you how life was a couple of centuries ago, and together with their traditional farm you get a sneak peek of what life on a farm, let alone an Irish farm is really like. The team at Molly Gallivan's also put on traditional Irish evenings, Irish Hooleys if you will. Complete with a three course dinner you can enjoy an amazing Irish experience that is worth every single euro!
