Skelligs Chocolate is a family run business overlooking the magnificent Skelligs Rocks, on the south west coast of Ireland. Our factory opened its doors in 1996, consisting of two little production rooms; one for making chocolate and the other for packaging. The factory has since expanded to a state of the art production facility with adjoining cafe which serves delicious hot chocolate, tea, coffee and homemade treats. With the only open plan chocolate production facility in Ireland, we encourage you to call in to see our chocolate being made, taste the delicious treats and ask the friendly staff all about where chocolate comes from and how it is made.

Stopped here on a rainy morning for coffee and what a gem it is! Wonderful generous chocolate tasting and then good coffee as well. Well worth a stop on route. Great chocolate for sale.

Popped in here last weekend for a coffee with friends. When you go in there's an area to queue to the right and a large open counter where you can see some of the chocolate being made. After a very short wait a lovely girl...More

The experience starts from the moment you drive here, as the views of Skelling Michael are truly awe inspiring. Once inside, it just keeps getting better, as the demonstration & tasting of all the different chocolates is incredible. Finish off with a nice scone &...More

A beautiful entertaining stop on a remote country drive. Free chocolate tasting, friendly warm staff and lovely environment. Nice little cafe here also. Pity the weather spoiled the views.

Welcomed warmly with a tasting session on arrival, which makes you want to buy half the shop! Nice cafe too. Happy half hour, nothing more.

I'm always partial to any establishment which offers tasters as a matter of course. This was great and due to the relatively quiet day which we visited tasting was extensive - highly enjoyable. For the quality of chocolate the price is perfectly acceptable. The cafe...More
