The Chocolate Warehouse is a real chocolate wonderland and was set up with one key objective: giving children (and adults) wonderful memories that stay with them for life. This is a unique and special journey through the history and joy of making chocolate
Ireland’s original and best Chocolate Workshops were started in 2001 by Natasha Caffrey Grand Daughter of the late Thomas Caffrey known as The Irish “Willy Wonka”. Caffreys Confectionery’s legendary Snowballs, Tea Cakes Macaroon bars, Big Time bars and lots more are all available at the Chocolate Warehouse shop, yummy yummy!!
The chocolate warehouse is a magical experience for both children and adults to enjoy. Their main objective is to create lasting memories which has proved a success over the years as young teenagers are still returning as adults.
Tour of the Chocolate Warehouse
The two hour event which covers a 25 minute film explains in detail the story of chocolate and how the cocoa beans are grown and harvested. The film shows the journey of the cocoa beans from the Aztecs to the factory and the process the cocoa beans go through to get the chocolate that we recognize today. The visitors are given a chocolate demonstration on how chocolates and Easter eggs are made. They are also shown the different machinery needed to make chocolate and the method of how to use a piping bag filled with chocolate. As always the fun part is the "hands on" session. The visitors put on aprons like a true chocolatier and start the business of coating chocolates, adding toppings and hand piping with white chocolate. All participants get to decorate and package the chocolate to take home. At the end of each event we have a short table quiz. This is great fun! The visitors realize they have learned a lot about the history of chocolate and how it is manufactured. Each visitor receives The Chocolate Warehouse Certificate which gives each visitor a sense of achievement and the enthusiasm for future learning.
The Chocolate Warehouse also have key seasonal events throughout the year such as Santa Visits and Easter Bunny Visits.
