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.

Off the beaten path but definitely worth the effort to find........check directions before leaving and be prepared for some one lane winding roads......using gps I found it without any problems.

There is an absolutely divine, stunning, beautiful smell on entering the Burren Perfumery. Hand on heart, I was genuinely blown away, and can't wait to experience that fragrance again, seriously I haven't stopped thinking about it since my visit. To me, the aromas were so gorgeous, it switched the must-buy button in my brain! Two different members of staff spoke... More

Loved this place! The scents of their perfumes capture all the seasons of Ireland to perfection. It is amazing the things you can remember when you smell their winter perfume. Staff was great and super friendly. You will not regret visiting the Burren Perfumery!

Its miles from nowhere up skinny scary roads. Finally found it but as I walked toward the 'perfumery' the lady saw me and pulled a chain across the door as if to say go away we don't want your kind here. So i tried the cafe but it was full of school kids carrying on and not a seat to... More

After a few difficulties finding the place we were happy that we made the detour to the Burren Perfumery. The place has such a lovely atmosphere to it that it would have been a pity to miss it. Next to a little cafe is a shop where you can buy natural products ranging from herbal teas to body lotion and... More

The hand mixed perfumes and classes are well worth a visit. You may have to run around a bit to find it, but it's a great find! Once you get done choosing your scents, you should most certainly stop in their tea room for awesome scones and fresh herb tea. Wonderful!

Certainly, there are some lovely perfumes. I was delighted by the short video - which prompted me to seek those flowers they described whilst out and about in the Burren. Turns out, when you look for them, there are many, many, flowers. From afar, it appears almost as a lunar landscape - devoid of any living thing - but the... More

Spent a lovely sunny afternoon here today! Had really gorgeous, tasty lunch in the tearooms. Staff were great, very friendly and helpful. The shop is well stocked and full of gorgeous things from soaps to candles, the shop assistant was really helpful and knowledgeable and let us browse at our own leisure!
