Overview

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.

The drive to the perfumery was breathtaking. We saw farm animals and enjoyed the curvy road.! The products are lovely and the movie gives an overview of the local flowers. Be sure to try the cakes in the tea room. They serve a Guinness fruit...More

Can’t believe this place is here in the middle of no where. Incredible wild scenic area with a perfumery oasis. Lovely gardens and tea room with fab cakes. Really interesting movie shown about the flora and fauna in the area.

It was one of those days that the fog came in from the Atlantic and completely shrouded The Burren. Elsewhere the country bathed in sunshine. We woke up to the prospect of a lost day of sightseeing from our Doolin base. Undaunted we concluded that...More

Frankly, I am amazed by some of the negative reviews here. Perhaps - because we live in London - we have a heightened sense of space, nature in the raw and sincere hospitality. The Burren is an extraordinary place, it is a beautiful wild landscape...More

I very much enjoyed visiting the Burren Perfumery. The setting is incredible and the drive up alone is worth it. The products are reasonably priced and the soup and coffee at the cafe were fresh. I would definitely recommend a visit.

Even though the items made & sold here don't utilize the Burren plants because they're protected, this is an interesting place to visit. The road is narrow and it feels like you're lost, but you eventually arrive at this unique blend of shop/restaurant/herb garden. The...More

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.
