  • Visited Skelligs Chocolate Factory in August 2016,which is one of our must do when in Kerry. Chocolate was fabulous as usual. Staff were friendly ,knowledgeable and fun...not something every business ...  more »
  • Driving through the area and planned a stop here. Great decision. One is able to watch chocolates being made while sampling a variety of tasty treats. A bag of the thin dark chocolates didn't last too...  more »
  • We just managed to get in before they started closing up. They still took the time to give us free samples, all of which were amazing. We ended up spending quite a lot because it was all so delicious

  • 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.
