I have already been here three times and each time I feel like in a fairytale. The location is indeed beautiful: right in front of the Skellig Islands, surrounded by green and facing the ocean. You can arrive by several different roads, and a minibus...More

Amazing chocolate factory located on the Ring of Kerry. Lots of tasting samples to enjoy and some lovely quirky flavour combinations. Well worth a stop while on the Ring of Kerry. We bought loads of different bars.

We (family of 2 adults and 3 children) have visited twice, and enjoyed the tasting session on both occasions. The shop has an excellent selection of chocolate choices, and it is a fun way to pass half an hour on a rainy day.

We drove the Ring of Kerry and were advised to stop off here. We were so glad we did. Friendly staff welcome you in to a "tasting area". We were asked if there are any allergies in the family before she brought out a selection...More
