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.

Charming place which might be harder to find, but the revward will be great - sip a tea at beatiful garden, watch a movie about stunning surrounding or hear about the flowers from the owners directly. :-)

I am big into smells, especially those of the good kind, so visiting the Burren Perfumery with the family was a lovely treat, as good smells are what it does best! There was a lovely calm, relaxed vibe at this place, and we enjoyed the little film about the natural offerings from around the area. After sniffing our way through... More

Such a charming place. Even the trip to get there along winding country roads. You come into the grove of trees surrounding the place as if you are coming into a tiny little magical enclave. I specifically went to get more perfume although love walking through the garden. I chose a perfume and the woman at the counter advised me... More

What we did not like: there is no such thing. What we liked here: everything! This place is like a fairy-tale. Service was excellent. They know how to be kind with people, they were super patient with my child (I am sure with other children too) and helpful until the last moment we were there. Answered every questions I had...

It's hard to describe how charming this is -- arriving feels like finding a delightful unexpected little treasure. The shop has special perfumes, soaps, and other unusual herbal/floral products that make nice gifts. We watched a short film there which gives an inspiring view of the little wonders of beauty in the Burren. Then we enjoyed strolling the gardens and... More

Really enjoyed this beautiful oasis in the Burren Way. Every fragrance you can think of for lotions, creams, spritzers. For both men and women. And of course a little tea room. They are everywhere in Ireland. Plenty of parking which was a real surprise.

This is a wonderful venue to stop of and get to understand more about this incredible landscape. We sat through a 10 minute film which gave us a greater insight into the natural beauty that surrounds the Burren Perfumery. We purchased some perfumes, spent a few minutes talking to maybe, the most helpful and friendly staff on this planet and... More

Tucked away in the breathing Burren landscape is this little garden oasis. The facility is outstanding, and the staff working in the perfumery were helpful in describing the various perfumes which all smelled good. The tea shop is good to visit as well in a lovely garden setting.
