We stopped on the way to Killarney, and treated ourselves to some chocolate and some pressies for friends. Well worth dropping in.

Booked in advance of arrival in kenmare and turned out to be a fantastic fun way to spend 2 hours on a "typical" irish summers day!!!. Kids loved it came out covered in chocolate and a bag of goodies. Definitely worth a visit.

Hi Lorge, I've just found a bar of your delicious chilli chocolate lurking down in the bowels of my fridge. I've a nice cup of Ponaire coffee in hand, the chocolate is dated September 2013 and I'm debating whether to let rip or not......thoughts? Peter
