The Burren Perfumery is located in the heart of the Burren in County Clare and is Ireland's longest-established perfume house. Since opening its doors 43 years ago, the Perfumery has drawn inspiration from the flora and beauty of the Burren landscape to create its signature scents, which are hand-blended and bottled on the Perfumery's premises. Today, the Burren Perfumery creates its artisan range, which includes hand-crafted soaps, certified organic creams and candles, using the very best natural and organic ingredients sourced from all around the world. Visitors are welcome to come along and experience the Burren Perfumery first-hand. A busy working factory, visitors are welcome free-of-charge and all-year-round to check out its home and hub in Carron, County Clare. Open from 9am to 7pm in the Summer and from 10am to 5pm in the Winter, visitors can observe the Perfumery team members as they go about their daily work in the Manufacturing Workshops and browse the Perfumery's products and offerings in its Gift Shop. For visitors interested in gaining some insight into just how special and spectacular the Burren's natural offerings are, a beautiful, locally-shot short film (free of charge) featuring the unique local flora and landscape of the Burren truly sets the scene. The Perfumery's Tea Rooms, which are open Summer-long, offer an opportunity to relax and unwind over a selection of freshly baked organic cakes, garden soups, tea, herbal teas and coffee, while visitors can also meander through and enjoy the Perfumery's organic show Garden.

So welcoming, staff loads of time to explain everything without a hard sell and free talks from the herbologist and tour of the garden, so informative, wonderful tea room too, exudes quality. Well worth the effort to find it and excellent products on sale

Came Monday for a visit. Found the shop itself to be pricey. The tea room was really lovely and the scone with jam was amazing. Best jam I've had in years! Worth a visit if you are driving past.

After getting a recommendation in a pub in Doolin we had a lovely visit here. The perfume products are made on site and are fabulous quality. There are also herbs gardens and little walks and a lovely tea room with home baking.

We only had cake which was gorgeous, but others meals looked v good. It is home made, locally produced and therefore a bit more expensive than standard pub/cafe fare, but worth every penny IMO.
