On a cold, rainy morning we visited Molly Gallivan's Cottage and Farm and enjoyed the coziness of her little stone cottage, where we warmed up with a steaming cup of tea and a freshly baked scone. There was also a great selection of Irish woolens (sweaters, scarves, hats, etc), jewellery, and other handmade items for purchase in the cottage. The... More

We stopped at this small shop - it's larger than it looks. Lot's of Irish sweaters, sheep skin, some jewelry, lots of hats. We scored lots of fine items here!

Stopped in on a whim and was pleasantly surprised. Better than many fancier museums. The walking tour covered quite a span of history and the views were fantastic.

Had an 88th year birthday party for my mother here in August. It was wonderful. The food was excellent and the entire night of storytelling, dancing and music was a hit from start to finish.
