Visit Hazel Mountain Chocolates for a unique experience. See how they make the chocolate from the beans. Enjoy wonderful gluten free cakes in the coffee shop. There are fabulous walks in this area.

Our boutique bean to bar chocolate factory is amongst the smallest and most remote chocolate factories in the world, situated next to our cafe in the Burren hills. Since its conception in 2014, Hazel Mountain chocolate has been making waves on the chocolate scene, with a TV appearance with Nigella Lawson, and a bronze award from the Academy of chocolate. Our process is unique in Ireland in that we complete every stage from the bean to the bar on site. We create small batches of chocolate made from criollo and Trinitario beans attained through direct trade. Our award winning single origin dark chocolate is beautiful in its simplicity, being formed from beans including Madagascar, Venezuelan, Mexican and Costa Rican mixed solely with raw cane sugar. Our luxuriously creamy milk chocolate is created using Irish milk from grass fed cows, amalgamated with a very smooth cuban bean. Our process includes roasting the beans, cracking and winnowing, before grinding the cocoa nibs in our stone mills in the traditional method for two days, all before ageing the chocolate for 3 weeks. Due to the open floor plan of our shop and factory, the entire process, including the chocolate kitchen, is viewable by all who pass through our gates. From the smell of the roasted beans through the factory door, to the tasting of Ireland’s finest craft chocolate, our quaint little factory is a unique experience you don’t want to miss.
