If you pass not far from the Skelligs Islands, then don’t hesitate to drop by the Ballinskelligs chocolate factory! The Skelligs Chocolate Company will offer you a unique experience: watch the chocolatiers at work and discover the ancestral techniques of chocolate working! Quite a program!
Beware: the Ballinskelligs chocolate factory risks making more than one of its visitors lose their heads! It must be said that the chocolate flows there in all its forms… Dark, white, milk, with almonds, caramel, hazelnuts? A choice so wide that you’ll no doubt let yourself be won over by the delicacy!
It should be noted that the chocolate factory has a renowned reputation throughout Ireland… First of all because it is a luxury chocolate factory: most of its chocolate comes directly from Switzerland and France! Moreover, this raw material is perfectly combined with high quality ingredients, all from expert chocolate makers who do not joke about precision! They will tell you themselves: here, working with chocolate is an ART!
You will have the privilege of discovering real chocolate pumps, marshmallows in a chocolate crust, chocolate bars with sea salt or Irish honey? A real experience for the senses!
The chocolate factory is open all year round to visitors and will offer you the opportunity to visit the factory, taste the different chocolates made, and of course to leave with some home-made products, including chocolate truffles, or fudges, crunchy rocks, and other combinations of chocolate with whiskey, or with chilli and spices! Not to mention their countless chocolate bars!
