Chocolate Factory

Our enthusiastic Transition Year group traveled to Caffrey’s Chocolate Warehouse in Walkinstown, Dublin. The students got a tour of the Chocolate Warehouse where they were given samples of the magnificent chocolate. The students decorated their own bars of chocolate. The business was established in 1948 by Thomas Caffrey, “The Irish Willy Wonka”. It was a very enjoyable day for all involved.
