  • As soon as you arrive you can see the chocolate being made. The staff are very friendly and are happy to give you a free tasting tour of their chocolate flavours. The cafe serves great coffee and of course delicious fresh hot chocolate. A great place to visit no matter what the weather.
  • Lovely and very friendly little factory with beautiful chocolate. Also nice to place to sit down for tea/coffee/hot chocolate with the best scones :-) My daughter said that the strawberry hot chocolate was her best.
  • It was too foggy to see much on the Skellig Ring the day we drove it, but the free samples and friendly service at Skelligs Chocolate made the drive worth it. I don't have much of a sweet tooth, but this stuff is so good I wanted to take home a suitcase full of it! A must-visit if you're out that way.
  • Fantastic, great outdoor and indoor seating, loads of parking, very friendly staff. The raspberry and coconut chocolate and orange brittle are gorgeous.
  • The free taststig is a nice offer. The chocolate is nice but Far from outstanding.
