Molly Gallivans is dedicated to the preservation and promotion of Irelands rich Heritage and culture.
A dream come true
Back in September 1999 my wife Frances and I had a dream. That dream was to purchase Molly Gallivan’s old cottage and farm, here in the Kerry hills.
Our vision was to save a small piece of old Ireland, and in doing so, preserve some of Irelands unique and rich heritage and traditions, for our and hopefully future generations to enjoy.
Inspired by all the additional hidden history that we discovered on the farm which included a Neolithic Stone Row (3-2000 BC), Peat Bog, Pre historic field systems and Famine ruin, we set to work on many years of preservation and restoration.
Today that dream has become a reality. Together with our three daughters we run a small visitor centre at Molly Gallivan’s. Each day we have the pleasure in welcoming people from the four corners of the World to share with us in “our dream”.
We would also like to invite you to Molly Gallivan’s to share that dream, and to experience the unique indigenous Culture and Heritage of rural Ireland, while enjoying the grate natural beauty of our un spoilt landscape here in the Sheen Valley.
