Jamie and Beatrice O'Neill run this connoisseur chocolate company from their workshop, specialiisng in single origin chocolate and fresh, seasonal ingredients
Jamie and Beatrice O'Neill run this connoisseur chocolate company ChocOneill from their workshop in Dunbeggan, Aughnacliffe, which you can visit by appointment on weekdays (please phone in advance).
They specialise in single origin chocolate and use fresh, seasonal ingredients, so the range is constantly changing and has a shorter shelf life than most chocolates - all adding to the sense of special treat.
A constant - although the contents will vary - is their Boite en Chocolat (Chocolate Box), made like an Easter egg with a 70% chocolate shell encasing fresh chocolates, truffles and pralines... sold at selected outlets and some markets, eg Naas (Sat, 10-3); see website for details. Online shop.
