About Lily O’Brien’s 


Lily O'Brien's Chocolates started life as the brainchild of Mary Ann O'Brien who took her passion for chocolate on a journey of discovery, honing her chocolate-making skills among 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, Lily O'Brien's chocolates soon established itself as one of Ireland's best-loved chocolatiers. 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.
