Welcome

We are a family run business with, as far as we are aware, the only fully ‘open plan’ chocolate production facility anywhere in Ireland! Here you can see the chocolates being made, ask questions and taste the freshly made treats! Oh and we do have a fantastic new mural based on the Willy Wonka factory. But please note this is not like that film (Willy Wonka) where all sorts of magic can be made to appear. We live in the real world and have to deal with all health and safety and usual business issues that surround any food enterprise.

If you are thinking of visiting us for the first time then please be aware we are NOT a massive chocolate factory like some of the huge commercial chocolate makers you may have seen on TV.

Overlooking Skelligs Rock

As our location is very remote, we are not open 7 days a week all year round. We do have a seasonal cafe (Easter till September) serving freshly made cakes and desserts along with teas, coffees and our speciality… deliciously rich ‘real chocolate’ hot chocolate!

Please note – ‘The Skelligs Chocolate Café’ does not serve lunch type food – This is strictly a treats only cafe. (Open from Easter to mid September each year)
If you have been to visit us before then ‘many thanks’, as we are always delighted to have return visitors. We are constantly trying to improve the experience so hopefully you will see something new on you return.

Also, there is no specific ‘tour’ (and therefore no entrance charge) – we are a friendly and welcoming business located in a truly stunning location overlooking the Skelligs Rock. We are fortunate to have St. Finian’s Bay beside us (100m) great for surfing and a further 100m brings you to the new children’s playground in The Glen.

On the famous Ring of Kerry

As part of a trip around the Ring of Kerry this is a perfect stop (during the summer), and as we are only an hour from Tralee or Killarney you can easily fit us in as something to do in south Kerry. On a day trip you will see fabulous views at ‘Mountain Stage’ just outside Glenbeigh, Valentia Island (by ferry) with the site of the first transatlantic cable, Portmagee which is one of Ireland’s cutest (working) fishing villages. We are just 15 minutes off the main Ring Of Kerry road.

  • 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.

    Apologies but we are unable to Ship to the USA

    With excessive heat related issues from our couriers we, regrettably, cannot send any chocolates to America.

    This will be reviewed at the end of September
