Chocolate is lovely to eat but it’s also great fun to make too! We offer a range of scheduled and private workshops so that you can experience the joy and wonder of creating your own chocolate treats.

We have an experience for everybody. Families can get together to make some tasty treats or for kids only we have the Choccy Rocky Experience. Our fun family activities are informative, creative and best of all, you have something delicious to take home too. For the chocolate-loving grown up, we have experiences to learn truffle-making, moulding chocolates and making some classic favourites. Visitors and locals love to explore the fantastic Taste Causeway artisan products we can pair with chocolate or learn how to taste chocolate properly – yes there really is a way to enjoy chocolate even more than you do now.

Our workshops are open to the public or can be booked as private sessions. We welcome groups and offer school and corporate packages based on the age range and interests of our guests. Our workshops are great for team-building or celebrating a special event.

If you’re looking for an engaging activity to share with family, friends or colleagues, or want to add artisan chocolate making to your Irish food experience, a visit to The Chocolate Manor is a must!
