This place does the best hot chocolate in the city. Really wish it opened in the evenings and did a wider range of cakes, maybe icecream or other desserts. Cork badly needs a night time dessert place!

Stopped in on a Friday afternoon before lunch. Place was busy and hopping. The cafe has a lot of varieties of hot chocolate to choose from. I got the bitter dark chocolate which was everything I could ask for! Would definitely go back when I am in town next.

This place is always busy and once you order you could wait another 10 minutes before you get your coffee. The seating arrangement is a bit obscure but it is all forgotten when you get your coffee and a small sample of the most amazing chocolate. Yum Yum. Make sure you are not in a rush to be somewhere when... More

Never in my life have a found a hot chocolate to match the ones here!!! Again...YUM! And such a cute little place, don't leave without buying a little bag of those yummy chocolate pieces so that you can (attempt to) make one as good at home. Haha as you can tell, I kind of ended visitng this cafe. :)

Want a succulent chocolate experience? O'Conaill's is the place. Seriously, check it out. I bet they use Belgian Callebaut. If they don't, kudos for offering great chocolate in any case. Lovely place. Fun, young and yummy.

Usually, I don't drink hot chocolate but this place changed me. I love the white and milk praline hot chocolate but I only take the regular size and I can only have it from time to time because it is really heavy. However, there are also some weird hot chocolates (something with roses?) which I would not take again... I... More

Nice little cafe, good service and reasonably priced drinks and coffee. The little drops of chocolate you get with the coffee is a delightful touch.I enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and chose to sit outside as the weather was fine. I enjoyed my trip and I think the experience was good enough to make me return again soon.

When I came to cork, I was told by a local that I would receive not only the best hot chocolate in all of Ireland at O'Canaill's but the best in the world. I'm not even a hot chocolate fan and let me tell you it did not disappoint. Don't miss out on this mouth watering experience you wont get... More
