The staff here are very conscientious and friendly, and the coffee is really good. Also, I highly recommend the white hot chocolate. It even comes with complimentary chocolates!

I love O Conaills chocolate shop 💕 the hot chocolate is AMAZING. I love coming here whenever I'm in Cork, either to meet friends or by myself. I haven't tried the coffee yet. I would highly recommend O Conaills

A great range of delicious hot drinks, cakes, bakes and chocolate, with easily the best hot chocolate in Cork city! The Princes St location is just as great, though with limited seating.

Small and very busy. I ordered a milk and dark chocolate with cardamom but the girl mistook it and gave me caramel instead which was way too sweet for me (I think because I didn't pronounce it clearly). My boyfriend had dark chocolate with cinnamon and orange with was very nice. The hazelnut an praline brownies was fabulous

Well worth finding, the coffee is also great and very reasonably priced! Nice and cosy and friendly service with a great selection of cakes, the macaroons are very moorish!!

Great coffee. Nice touch accompanied by a small selection of chocolate buttons. We also had a chocolate brownie and a chocolate tart which were lovely. At our first visit the staff were a little bit grumpy which was a shame but the second visit...coffee brought us back...not so much.

The chocolate drink was just perfect, made with wonderful chocolate and served up by a really friendly person. They do it with... More

I love chocolate and visited Princes Street looking for a few treats for the evening at home. The guy behind the counter didn't even look up as I walked to the counter, he was to engrossed on his phone. There was a woman waiting for service as and she just threw her eyes up to heaven. She left after not... More
