The Truffle Fairy

As implied by the whimsical name of her business, there is indeed a touch of magic about chef Mary Teehan’s chocolate creations, and chocoholics visiting the Kilkenny area would do well to seek them out.


Mary is something of a legend in her area and anyone with an interest in chocolate (and that must be just about everyone) should make a point of visiting this delightful place as visitors are welcome to the production kitchen, shop and café (where you may be lucky enough to get a complimentary truffle with your coffee).


Although best known for luscious truffles and chocolate fudge, the range has expanded to include chocolate bars and chocolate barks (bars covered with dried fruits and/or nuts), cakes and cookies. Mary’s Truffle Fairy Chocolate Brownies were a Great Taste Awards Gold Star winner (2012) and several of her exotic truffles did well the year before - a star for Chai espresso truffle and two gold stars each for the Cardamom orange truffle and Tequila salt lemon truffle. The freshness and quality of her ingredients stands out - and all ethically sourced too.


The Truffle Fairy is a member of the Kilkenny Food Trail.

Open Wed- Sat 10-5 with lunch break 12.30-1; or by appointment. Also sold at farmers’ markets and selected speciality stores including Glasrai and Goodies, Gowran; can order through the website (email or phone). abbreviations
