I love the atmosphere and quirky decor in this little side street cafe. The chocolate added to each coffee gives it an indulgent feel as well as the chocolate drops with each drink. The cakes are average and usually dry, I stopped buying them but go back time and again for the coffee.

This shop is one of those places I always visit when I'm home, I have been known to drive straight from the airport to O'Conaill's just for one of their delicious hot chocolates. As usual it didn't disappoint ! I had a milk and dark; my daughter had a dark ganache with cardamom. We sat in total silence for 20... More

I live 30 mins from cork city and everytime i go into the city I make a point to get a praline hot chocolate from here! Absolutely the best hot chocolate i've ever had.

My wife and I called into the princes street location a few days ago. It's really nice. The location is pretty central. The service was swift and friendly. The prices were fine. The hot chocolates we ordered were delicious. We had a brownie that was gorgeous and will have us returning for more. I'd strongly recommend here to anyone.

Ó Conaills hot chocolate is my vice! I can not walk down French Church Street without getting one, I always get the white and milk chocolate with cream. There's simply no point getting hot chocolate anywhere else - fact!
