Lily O'Brien's Chocolates started life as the brainchild of Mary Ann O'Brien. O'Brien honed her chocolate-making skills working with world-class chefs and chocolatiers in both South Africa and Europe before starting her own mini enterprise from her Co. Kildare kitchen in 1992.

With little more than two saucepans, a wooden spoon and her then toddler, Lily, acting as production manager, Mary Ann began to create high-quality chocolate recipes for friends and family. Named after her daughter, Lily O'Brien's chocolates soon established itself as one of Ireland's best-loved chocolatiers.

Years later, Lily O’Brien’s Chocolates has come to be a firm favorite in homes across the country and indeed, further afield. The passion for chocolate that first inspired Mary Ann O'Brien is still present in every aspect of the business and remains at the very core of what Lily O'Brien's do. Based in the heart of Co. Kildare, Ireland, the team at Lily O’Brien’s continue to develop mouth-watering chocolate creations using the finest quality ingredients, which are then shipped to many corners of the globe.
