Even before you take a bite, you’ll notice that Saorla’s chocolate has that beautiful gloss which is a sign of quality and professionalism, and her products are beautifully branded and packed too, so they make lovely gifts
Using the very best of ethically sourced and fresh local ingredients, Saorla Ó Corráin started her chocolate business in a small kitchen west of Dingle in 2011, and has since been a familiar sight at the weekly Dingle Farmers’ Market where shoppers are constantly amazed by the quality and variety of her delicious creations - and delighted to give her feedback on her latest flavour combinations.
Dovinia (named after a local pre-Christian goddess) specialises in hot chocolate spoons (in various flavours) and Saorla also makes bars, seasonal treats and novelties - and seriously irresistible classic chocolates with gorgeous fillings in unusual flavour combinations, such as brandy and apricot, basil and thyme, prosecco and raspberry, lavender and honey…and, as they’re offered individually, you could just buy one. Or maybe not.
Even before you take a bite, you’ll notice that Saorla’s chocolate has that beautiful gloss which is a sign of quality and professionalism, and her products are beautifully branded and packed too, so they make lovely gifts.
