SKELLIGS CHOCOLATE, THE GLEN, BALLINSKELLIGS, CO. KERRY, IRELAND

Home

Welcome to Skelligs Chocolate, Irelands only open-plan chocolate factory! Located on The Skelligs Ring, recently named in The Lonely Planet’s Top 10 Regions to visit in 2017, our factory is just opposite St. Finian’s Bay and overlooking the UNESCO World Heritage site Skellig Michael, which has been used as the backdrop to the latest Star Wars movie; The Last Jedi. We welcome visitors to come and see our Award-Winning chocolates being made, taste the freshly made treats from our chocolatiers while learning all about chocolate. From Easter to September The Puffin Café serves great tea, coffee and incredibly rich hot chocolate drinks, freshly baked scones, cakes and desserts. We are just 10 minutes off the main Ring of Kerry road, approximately one hour from Killarney or Tralee. You can view our online shop here.

A great place to visit if you are touring the area. Stunning views and a lovely beach nearby. Take the tasting tour of the factory and sample every type of chocolate they make, they are all delicious. Then buy some of your favourites at the shop. Also pop into the cafe for a bite to eat and a hot chocolate, probably the best hot chocolate I have ever had. Absolutely delicious! It total you would spend 40 mins or so there so it's a good place to visit as a pit stop on your journey. I will definitely be going back next time I visit the area.

Make the stop on your tour of the Ring of Kerry and enjoy some amazing chocolates. I particularly loved the sign for unattended children. This is a great place to get out of the car without the need to bring your camera. A nice clean bathroom and cafe awaits you after those long winding roads.

I went here with my family, this is a lovely place to visit, you can see clearly how they make the chocolate and there are people giving you different chocolates for tasting, the orange and dark chocolate is my favorite. There is an cafe in there as well, they do cakes and coffees, you should definitely try out their hot chocolate, they have a lot of choices, milk, dark, white, caramel, chili and mint. The cafe have a nice sitting area inside and outside, and it has a nice garden as well. On the way to the Skellig chocolate there is a beach, you can also get down there and take some pictures

A Chocolate lovers delight! The staff were very informative and generous during the tasting. The factory is open so you can see the chocolate being made as your eyeing up your chocolate purchase! It’s kid friendly with a decent cafe & also a picnic area. Well worth stopping into for a visit!

We were allowed to taste the chocolate we wanted to buy first. I thought it would make it easier to sort out the one we did not like. It didn't. Everything was scrumptious.

  • Thank you for choosing Skelligs Chocolate. We work hard at making the best possible chocolate we can and we do our best to make sure it arrives in the same condition as it left us.

    Here in Ireland, hot weather is rarely an issue, but what is it like where you are sending this chocolate? We have no control over the way it is transported and how long it stays in hot trucks or depots.

    Unfortunately, we cannot take responsibility for the condition of the chocolate you send.

    If you are happy to take responsibility please just tick the box and proceed.

    If you would like to discuss this with us please email us at office@skelligschocolate.com or call us on 00 353 66 9479119 to discuss what we can do for you.

     

    Tips for Warm Weather Shipping:

    • Please be aware that we use a registered postal delivery service so all packages are tracked and must be signed for on delivery. If there is no one available to sign for the package, please be aware your chocolate will be put back on the truck and stored in the nearest depot for collection.
    • If possible, ship to a business address. Businesses usually receive packages earlier in the morning and someone is always onsite to receive the package. This way your product isn’t exposed to the hot sun all day.
    • After receiving your package, let it rest at room temperature to provide items time to set before opening.
