Butlers Chocolates, an Irish family-owned company has been crafting delicious, luxury chocolates in Dublin since 1932.

Travel Retail has been at the heart of our business for over 40 years. Butlers has supplied Travel Retail since the 1980’s and has risen to the fore of the premium chocolate category. 

In fact, Butlers pioneered the development of the premium chocolate category in Dublin Airport, at a time when the category was in its infancy on the Irish high street. The Butlers brand is now available in many countries and domestic and international airports around the globe. 

At Butlers, we are firmly pledged to responsible manufacturing, such as a commitment to local sourcing, using recyclable packaging and reducing single-use plastic.

Butlers Chocolates are vegetarian and are crafted using sustainably sourced cocoa and no palm oil.

The Butlers factory in Dublin has zero waste to landfill and hosts one of Ireland’s largest solar panel installation on its roof, which since installation has produced the equivalent energy to produce 6 million chocolate bars. 



Butlers are also known and loved throughout Ireland and beyond for our eponymous retail concept - Butlers Chocolate Café, an innovative experience personifying the Butlers brand in over 30 stores worldwide, including Abu Dhabi and other locations in the Middle East and South Asia.

Butlers Chocolate Café opened in November 2023 in the much lauded Terminal A in Abu Dhabi International Airport. Terminal A is one of the world's largest airport terminals, with capacity to accommodate up to 45 million passengers per year. This terminal, which will serve 117 global destinations, will enhance the frequency and coverage of flights to and from Abu Dhabi.
