A stop at Molly’s farm on N-71 between Bantry and Kenmare will take you back into another era when life was difficult and our ancestors worked hard every day to eke out a subsistence existence. It is not a sad place but one of inspiration that is part of our history and our culture. The farm speaks to us whether we are Irish or not for it’s the story of another day.
The farm is child friendly as well as educational for the whole family.
The cheerful owners will help you tour the farm and even give you a snack to feed the friendly donkeys. After the tour we were offered a cup of tea which we enjoyed. There is no required entrance fee but donations are accepted.
While there, I bought a hand knitted sweater. I liked it so much that I went back the next day to purchase an accompanying scarf.
Molly’s is a place not to be missed especially if you can attend one of the Irish music gatherings that she offers, but stay away from her poteen still unless you have a designated driver.
