Wild Irish Handmade Milk Chocolates selection.
Wilde Irish Chocolates was founded in 1997 in the wilds of Co. Clare.
The founders: Patricia Farrell and her husband , with their son and daughter.
Originally from Ringsend, Dublin, Patricia and fellow Dub Con moved to the Burren after completing degrees in UCD in the early 90’s. Both working in the tourism industry, Con was passionate about starting their own small business. And, a self-confessed chocolate addict all her life, creating Wilde Irish Chocolates enabled Patricia to take her childhood dream of owning a chocolate shop that step further!
It all started at the kitchen of their tiny cottage in very rural North Clare. In the era before ‘Bean To Bar’ was even a concept for tiny artisan chocolate makers deciding to work with the best available beautiful Belgian couverture chocolate was an easy one.
“In teaching ourselves how to make chocolate in the early years we quickly came to understand the environmental sensitivities of chocolate and all its wilde moods. During the twenty or so years since we started our wilde journey we have developed our chocolate making skills as well as increasingly diversifying our flavour range. And even though we improved our production methods along with a few upgrades in premises, we are still handmade with a product range that’s proudly experimental”
