As well as enjoying a Chocolate Experience, Castlerock has lots to experience and enjoy. Take time to walk on the beach, explore the Black Glen and walk through to Mussenden Temple and Downhill Demesne, or pose for a picture at the new frame at Tunnel Brae. There are a number of fabulous places to eat, including Coffee Hut, The Surf Shack, Crusoes, Meatbox, Bertha’s Bar, Castlerock Golf Club and the Village Kitchen, plus locally made ice cream from Braemar Farm at the beach.
Please arrive at least 5 minutes before your session is due to start – this allows us to get you checked in before we commence your experience.
