    Well worth a call if you are driving out on the Ring of Kerry tour. The delicious smell of chocolate welcomes you on arrival & the facilities are excellent. Special mention to Dararca who looked after us with delicious samples & was very kind to our boys. The coffee shop with its stunning views out to the magnificent Skelligs Rocks was a spectacular setting for our coffee break. Best of luck to all the team.

    Chocolate tasting was great. Hot chocolate was mostly milk. Quite disappointing. Could have used half the liquid and still charged the same price and it would have been much better. Waste of chocolate, in my opinion. Drank 2 sips, not worth the sugar and calories to finish. Cappuccino was done well.

    As soon as you stepped inside, you could instantly tell this place meant BUSINESS. (in a good way) Absolutely fab chocolate, the hygiene standards were second to none everywhere in the entire building. You could watch the staff make chocolate which was an interesting experience as well as take a free sample.
