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. :)

.. Great selection and variations, plus the free chocolate chips is a great touch! Not too bad price wise either! Would recommend.

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

Came here because some friends recommended it but we were absolutely disappointed. I am used to drink a thick and dense hot chocolat, this one is completely liquid and sugary, could not even finish it. Not expensive either. Definitely won't visit again.

Simply delish!! Homemade chocolate and highest quality!! The milk and white hot chocolate is to die for, milk and white praline is even better! I love going in and has become a regularly place for a shopping break since I discovered it in college!

Yum. The hot chocolates and deserts are simply amazing. Broad range of sweet treats and cute and quirky chocolate gifts on sale. Great place to sit and relax with friends. Fast and efficient service. Highly recommend and will definitely be back!

Always try and grab a white hot chocolate while passing here. The best I have ever tasted, and now I can't even buy a hot chocolate anywhere else as it's never up to par with O'Conaills. Good range of products if you fancy making any of the drinks at home. Lovely chocolately smell on arrival. There are actually 2 shops... More
