Overview
More
Free Admission. Open daily all year. Working factory. Free Film. Gardens. Shop. 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.

Happened to spot this place on an old map and checked Trip Advisor to see if it was worth a diversion. What a hidden gem! Really recommend taking an hour or two here to enjoy the place fully. They also offer demonstrations / tours at...More

I agree with all of the other reviews that mentioned an oasis. That is a very accurate description. In the midst of a barren landscape you are shocked to suddenly arrive at a shady respite with beautiful flowers, good food something cool to drink. We...More

A beautiful and surprisingly sophisticated operation in the middle of "nowhere". Lovely garden, nice cafe (we only had tea and coffee but were highly tempted to try the cakes), a warm welcome and excellent fragrances. Your purse will have been lightened by the time you...More

The Burren Perfumery is a lovely spot...far off the beaten path...where they make perfumes, creams, soaps and candles in a beautiful garden setting. There is a wonderful cafe where you can have a light lunch, tea and baked goods or just a cold drink. There...More

Whenever I visit West Clare I always come here, both for the perfumes/soaps etc but mostly for lunch. The menu is extremely limited and consists only of home made soup, Irish cheese board, goat cheese ciabatta and smoked mackerel. That's it, just four items but...More

Excellent food, charming staff, and the gardens and perfumery are as beautiful as nature gets. Nestled deep in the Burren is this lovely, botanical oasis. I still order products from them over the internet.

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.
