Skelligs Chocolate is only able to ship to addresses in Ireland until the lock down and restrictions is lifted. If you would like to contact us about shipping email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Once your order has been prepared and is shipped we will email you a tracking code. Please note that deliveries in Ireland are about 48 hours but it varies per country - see 'where do you ship to?' for further information.
We ship to Ireland, most of Europe and globally. There can be some restrictions on where we send due to internal political restrictions, seasonal restrictions (too hot to ship) or travel issues. Deliveries to Ireland are usually received within 5 working day, 8 working days for Europe and 10 working days for the US and Canada. If you have a query on shipping times please email us on email@example.com
It can be an issue shipping to certain countries (rarely Ireland, regrettably) during their summer, e.g. Australia around December or Southern USA July or August. We cannot take responsibility for heat damage to chocolates ordered as we have no control over how they are shipped or stored once they leave Ireland. For full information see here - Warm Weather Warning Page
In the unlikely situation a parcel is unable to be delivered and is returned to us we will refund the chocolate element of the total cost. We do not get a refund from the couriers and therefore (regrettably) we are unable to refund this portion.
We try to accommodate all delivery requests but we cannot deliver to PO Boxes, 'leave in the green bin' or ' in the porch' - these are restrictions imposed on us from the couriers.
All our chocolate truffles and chocolate bars are gluten. But we also have a seasonal cafe (from Easter through to the end of September each year) and as we are open to the public there is the potential for some cross contamination of gluten. Please note our cafe is at the other end of the building to our production area.
Yes, we make all the chocolate in our factory. Here's a link to a short video (<2 mins) that gives an overview of what we do - Skelligs Chocolate Video (opens in a new tab).
A great question, and here's why.
By buying from us you are supporting an Irish family owned business with 19 direct staff, over 14 families.
A purchase from us contributes towards our staffs mortgages , car loans, food bills and all the businesses locally we support .
It enables us to live in this incredibly beautiful, but rural part of the country.
When you buy from a multinational, the money does not have the same grass roots impact as buying from any local Irish business.

I ordered, received the confirmation email and the tracking info but it still has not been delivered, what do I do?
Firstly apologies, we know this can be very disappointing. There are a number of reasons why this has happened from an error with the delivery address, the recipient not at home to an issue with the couriers.
But, firstly contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org letting us know your order number and a contact phone number for you. We will take care of it from there.
