About
Sit on the terrace here, gazing out over green fields and the sea view, eating homemade ice cream produced from the milk of the Daly’s pedigree herd of Fresians, it’s hard to imagine feeling better. This is happiness in a double whammy cornet full!

Ice Cream was lovely but very expensive at 2.80 a scoop. The lady(looks like the owner wife from the pictures)who served us was not very nice. There were 3 of us and she told the other lady behind the counter to start counting. Not very professional. Customer service needs a lot of work. Won't be going back to give her 2.80 for a scoop of ice cream. It will probably be gone up another 10cent. It costs nothing to be nice.

Small farm selling homemade ice cream. The icecream is really good and I loved it. The place was basic but clean and it is a family run, the teenagers behind the counter very friendly and good with local knowledge etc. Very pleasant stop off

On 30th June we stoped at Valentia Island Ice Cream shop. We taste Cookie and Strawberry Ice creams and Chocolate Milk Shake. Full big scoop is €2.50 and you can get a mix into a tub or cone. They are tasty but nothing to say they are so different from the other ice creams. The difference what I notice was they are not creamy but well frozen. Lacking the WOW factor. By the way if you take 3 scoops it will cost you €7.50. I think it is bit cheeky. I went to the customers washroom, Oh goodness gracious !! I wonder have the owners ever stepped into the washroom. It is extremely dirty, the fanlight was covered with cobwebs and doors cannot close. They have plenty of space if they want to develop & improve the quality of Ice cream but seems to be not keen as I went through the old reviews. How could I recommend such a place to my fellow travellers when I didn’t enjoy the ice cream and place.

The ice cream was ok but over priced. The pet corner was upsetting. Animals sitting in layers of their own filth and a tethered goat on a very short chain with no shade. Litter strewn over the terrace. Toilets ramshackle, a girl got stuck in one whilst we were there as lock broke, her parents had to sort it out with no help from staff. Awful, if people choose to keep pets in appaling conditions so be it, but don't charge tourists to come and look at them.

We stopped here on our day trip to Valentia Island after leaving Knightstown. The ice cream is delicious and there is a small terrace to enjoy the views. The Guinness Ice cream was unique and very enjoyable even though there was a 50c up charge for the green cone.

Great stop for couples as well as a place to take the kids for a real treat!

We stopped by Valentia Island Ice Cream on the advice of Chocolettes owners. Your Ice cream was fantastic. It was very creamy and probably the freshest treat I’ve had in a while. If you’re in the area, I highly recommend stopping by for a scoop.

While on the Valentia Island, don't miss Valentia Island Farmhouse Ice Cream! Very delicious, home made and fresh ice creams. great choice of different tastes. Scoops are really huuuuge, so it's good value for money (1 scoop 2.50eur, 2 scoops 4.50eur).
Worth it!

The Icecream factory is just on the outskirts of Knightstown. The icecream is made on site and there is a little petting farm area onsite. My personal favourite is the Hazelnut but as there are 6 of us - 2 adults, 2 teenagers and two little ones we bought the Vanilla and Caramel as well! Tubs are 5.50euro each. You can buy icecream cones as well.
We visited as well last year so of course the kids had this as one of their top to-dos:)
The only negative would be the girl serving - I would say employ someone who wants to be there - she is not friendly at all - no greeting no goodbye no thank you - just '16.50'! Perhaps we got her on a bad day but I find that so off putting. A smile, a comment costs nothing. But don't let that put you off - the icecream is just delicious!

Family run farm making their own ice-cream. Fabulous taste and a good selection of flavours. Reasonable prices for the quality of the product. 100% recommend a visit for the ice cream, the amazing views from the seating area and the friendliness of the staff.
