  • At Skelligs chocolate can be seen live chocolate production and is also carried by the best chocolate chips and gets a bit of insight. (Snacking is desired) Then, you can drink even coffee or hot chocolate spot, and what little food. Opposite is a small sweet Bay and there you can relax even bit. All in all worth a little detour

  • Pocket sized. Lots of different chocolate flavours to try out. Friendly. Worth a visit if already in the area or passing through. My personal impression of the place was dwarfed by having visited the much larger and 100x more interesting Callier factory, so the 5 stars are only 'cause Ireland.
  • Great location, not so great deals. But the chocolate is worth it. But you can't expect to get 100g for 1 Euro or less. But it is quality that counts. The staff is perfect in every aspect. Friendly, helpful and nice in general.
  • Good place to take your children if you want to see them reach new levels of excitement. Free chocolate tasting will do that. Staff are lovely - all of them, from the folks at the café, and the taste masters; the chocolate is the same level of lovely. I was not disappointed going here. And yes the chocolate is great.
  • Great stop for all chocolate lovers. Staff very friendly and helpful. Very generous tasting on entrance with a great welcome. Fascinating to see the open plan factory in action. Great selection of fantastic chocolate. Cafe is very nice with a good selection of treats. Gluten free options available in cafe. Picnic area also available. Plenty of parking outside. Good baby changing facilities and selection of highchairs/booster seats in cafe. Beware, you will leave with delicious goodies.
  • Delicious, diverse chocolate, perfect stop for the oncoming holidays. The little beach nearby offers the closest and if lucky in a clear day the best view of the Skelligs.
