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.

Interesting place to visit. Watched a short film on the history of the area. The garden was beautifully done. Make sure to have lunch at the tea room.

Had the pleasure of popping into The Burren Perfumery for lunch and had a gorgeous smoked mackerel salad served by friendly Irish staff who had that simple ease about them that comes so natural to most Irish people. The whole set up at The Burren Perfunery is so simple but so well done and such a little gem to visit... More

Great little enterprise and café bang smack in the heart of the Burren ... I was totally sceptical but upon visiting I found it to be be very pleasant and not bad value at all. Comparing prices with mainline retailers this place holds it own and offers a lot more ,, well worth a visit

If you appreciate well made perfume and toiletries where the ingredients have been carefully sourced with many of them organic then this place is well worth the visit. However a visit is much more than just a place to shop. You can watch the soaps being made or listen to a presentation on perfumes or simply browse with staff on... More

Great for lunch and to wander through the herb gardens absolutely stunning n the sun. A nice 10 minute screening all about the flora in the burren followed by some great shopping of all types of body products oils and some unusual perfumes. Highly recommended.

Everything here is handmade from natural and organic ingredients and in small batches. It's incredible to see- and if you ask to learn more they will share as much as you are willing to listen to. Lovely garden, small cafe, and really, really nice people. Buy some perfume, soap, and lotion to remember your trip.

We visited the Burren Perfumery on a rainy day during our visit to Fanore. Though it's definitely off the beaten path, it is such a neat attraction! They have a video discussing the flora in the Burren, and the perfumes are delightful - we bought some, even though we planned not to! We also ate in the tea room -... More

The Burren is an amazing geographical site in itself, but do seek out the Burren Perfumery if you are there. Building to the excitement was the travel to arrive through many medieval stone fences and jutting limestone landscapes. Caving in this area is said to be amazing. WHen you get to the perfumery it is an oasis. Lovely gardens, a... More
