If you travel anywhere near to Tywyn you simply must call into the "Halo" ice cream factory shop. Made with honey it is the creamiest tastiest ice cream ever. We visited twice and sampled the banana +honey and the cherry +honey. Absolutely delicious and generous portions. Also their attention to hygiene did not go unnoticed. The shop has lots of... More

On a long weekend break enjoying the beautiful scenery. Happened to be flicking through a guide book in the pub last night and saw the advert for the Ice Cream factory shop. Who can say no to Honey ice cream? Told my wife the local bay was regarded as one of the best potential places to see dolphins as an... More

My dad has been raving about the icecream here so I brought the wife and we have been here twice in two days, and she cannot get enough of it. They only have 3 flavours but the icecream is that good you don't need any more, all you have to do is decide which topping you want on your icecream.... More

Best ice cream worth the trip to tywyn just for this. Super yummy honey ice cream and often with infusions of other flavours with plenty of options for toppings and extras including sprinkles and flakes. A family favourite

well basically if ice cream is your thing, then this is where to get something a little bit different. Halo is famous for it's honey ice cream, but their apple pie ice cream has real apple pie in it ! Always a surprise and new flavours to try. Highly recommended.

Every trip needs a honey ice cream. Just amazing. They do different flavours each week too! Even on a miserable day it can bring you sunshine. It's not too far out of town so it's easy to walk to. If you ever visit Tywyn you need to have a Honey Ice cream.

The honey Ice Cream is superb by cone, or family tub. Has some other unusual flavors (that change regularly) too. Also a wide choice of snacks and drinks too. Lovely area to sit and enjoy your ice cream and take in some beautiful views. Also good for gifts too!

Took our dog to the beach for the day and thought I'd check if the Honey ice cream factory was still there. Must be over 30+ years since I was there last having been on holiday in Tywyn each summer for many, many years with my parents. Amazingly its still going and tastes just as good as I remember!

Visited the ice cream factory for the first time and it has to be one of the best ice creams I've had in a while the ice creams are very generous in size and the flavours are all lovely the shop is very clean and the staff are very patient while you choose your ice cream and toppings.
