I live 30 mins from cork city and everytime i go into the city I make a point to get a praline hot chocolate from here! Absolutely the best hot chocolate i've ever had. I only give 4 stars instead of 5 due to the very odd layout of the cafe, especially for take-away orders it's a very awkward, cramped... More

My wife and I called into the princes street location a few days ago. It's really nice. The location is pretty central. The service was swift and friendly. The prices were fine. The hot chocolates we ordered were delicious. We had a brownie that was gorgeous and will have us returning for more. I'd strongly recommend here to anyone.

Ó Conaills hot chocolate is my vice! I can not walk down French Church Street without getting one, I always get the white and milk chocolate with cream. There's simply no point getting hot chocolate anywhere else - fact!

The staff here are very conscientious and friendly, and the coffee is really good. Also, I highly recommend the white hot chocolate. It even comes with complimentary chocolates!

A great range of delicious hot drinks, cakes, bakes and chocolate, with easily the best hot chocolate in Cork city! The Princes St location is just as great, though with limited seating.
