NearyNógs Stoneground Chocolate Makers, 19 Ballymaderfy Road, Newry, Kilkeel, County Down, BT34 4SW
Chocolate making


Ireland's first bean to bar, craft chocolate makers.
Duration: 85 Minutes

Welcome to NearyNógs Stoneground Chocolate, Ireland's first bean to bar, craft chocolate makers.
During your 85 minute tour we will guide you through the chocolate making process from Bean-to-Bar.
Bean sorting, gentle Roasting, Breaking and Winnowing, stone-grinding and tempering are all part of making beautiful chocolate.
After this you will be taken on a taste journey experience, tasting expertly crafted chocolate from all over the world!

We ethically source single origin, speciality Cacao Beans from farms in Central America, South America, the Caribbean islands & West Africa and Asia.

We aim to showcase the amazing origin flavours and tasting notes in every cacao bean origin. We do this without additives, emulsifiers or artificial flavouring. You will get samples to taste for yourself!

Nestled between the Mourne Mountains and the Irish sea along the scenic Mourne Coast, you can find us making chocolate in our small batch factory. We built this as a family, with friends and neighbours and always with you in mind. It's a place for chocolate making, people gathering and story telling.

You can see our process and taste chocolate along the way with this tour!

Children are welcome to join the tour, although, our tour is best enjoyed for ages 12+.
We are working with local schools to create a chocolate experience specifically geared for younger age groups - watch this space!
