“Good ice cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Had this ice cream both in Dublin and Killarney. It's really good: clean, no artificial flavors, interesting choices. The caramel honeycomb flavor was especially good. They make only about 16 flavors at a time--keeping the quality up in that way. Recommended!

“Inspires patriotism :P”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

Great to see an Irish company producing a product like this. Frequented during last visit to Killarney and previously while visiting DIngle. The oat ice cream is AMAZING, was a little unsure before trying, on paper it sounded like it could go either way but wow, it really works. Please try to get stocked in more stores in Cork, was able to find in one local shop but would love to see in a Dunnes or tesco etc.

“Delicious!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Without a doubt, this is the Best ice-cream! They are located right in the center of Killarney town, but there is also a store in Dingle & one in Dublin as well. All of the ice cream is handmade using milk from the cows on the Dingle Peninsula & other local ingredients. We have an ice cream shop here at home that does that too, and you can really taste the difference! No matter what size you choose, you can mix flavors. I tried the Irish Coffee (real Irish whiskey) & Dingle Sea-Salt...vey yummy! You can try as many flavors as you want before making a selection. The atmosphere here is very friendly & fun. They have beach chairs out front too. Treat yourself to the best ice cream!

“Best ice-cream in Killarney!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Stopped here for a scoop and it all looked so good that I had a sundae instead! It was gorgeous. Try the sea salt ice-cream, it's delicious.
