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

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.
