Lovely coffee, great cakes and a pretty setting in a courtyard in Westport. I could imagine settling in here to read my Saturday papers while gently eavesdropping on the amazing conversations around me.

Marlene's should not be missed on a trip to Westport. We each had a hot chocolate which was better than any I had tasted before. (We licked the cups) The waitress even made a baby chino version for our toddler which was very thoughtful. We sampled the choccies which were smooth and velvety but not sickeningly sweet like many of... More

I don't live in Ireland any more and was sent a box of Marlene's chocolates for Christmas, i cant ever remember eating chocolates so good, they were flawless. A mix of dark and milk chocolates, every piece was delicious. 10 out of 10, easy.

Was told by family members to visit Marlene's Chocolate Haven when we went to Westport. The nicest mocha I ever had! The drinks are beautiful and her traybakes are so yummy. The handmade chocolates can also be bought in little gift boxes which are very reasonably priced. If ever in Westport a visit here is a must! The hot chocolates... More

Marlene's hot chocolate has always been a favorite of mine (each cup is made to order with a delicious melted chocolate bottom, with steamed milk and shaved chocolate on the top, yum!), but in the hot weather recently I had to branch out. The triple chocolate ice cream is wonderful and was a great way to cool down. Marlene's has... More

This lovely shop is one of my favorite stops in the beautiful and inviting town of Westport. As other reviewers have mentioned, the hot chocolate is the best you will ever taste. In this year's warm snap we were delighted to also find excellent ice cream available. Sitting down to a scoop of their amazing triple chocolate ice cream was... More

Not sure why this is under shopping rather than restaurants, but the hot chocolate and sweets were really wonderful here. My husband has a huge sweet tooth and he said that this was the best sweet the whole week we were in County Mayo!

I am not really a big chocolate lover, but my wife dragged me in. To keep it simple, I decided on a small hot chocolate with marshmellows..yum yum, did I ebjoy it. This was good. You can also purchase various size boxes of chocolates and they are not too expensive.
