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.

My husband surprised me when he pulled up to a tiny road with a cute sign that read "Burren Perfumery". This place was a dream. I don't wear perfume - but I do love flowers, and this place is a must if you are in the area. They show a short, very high definition (almost 3-D) that explains in detail... More

This is a beautifully run business in a beautiful setting with buildings that blend into the landscape and products you will enjoy for many weeks and months after you visit. Make time to have lunch or tea and cakes in the lovely tea rooms. A gorgeous place all round

I visited the Burren Perfumery with my family as we toured the local landscape. It offers a good mix of talks, presentations, a sensory herb garden and a small cafe. And of course lost of their products. I enjoyed some refreshments while others attended a talk and explored the shop. Our daughter loved the herb garden and kept wanting to... More

This lovely place in The Burren is off the beaten path but absolutely worth finding and experiencing. Not only is it a place of beauty and serenity but the products are marvelous.The teas, soaps (like organic lavender and pine/rosemary/sage) and creams are locally sourced and produced onsite. The garden is enchanting and well worth a wander. Take a few minutes,... More

One of my favorite places in Ireland to visit. The products are really nice. Love the soaps and lotions. The cafe is nice -- the carrot cake is to die for. Flowers are lovely and colorful.

We visited with local family members whilst on a week's holiday from the UK. The Burren is geologically very interesting with some spectacular views but is hardly a beauty spot - acres and acres of stark white limestone! In the middle of this wilderness is the perfumery, a quaint little oasis of colour and scent. There is an interesting sensory... More

Having received a present of Borage balm made by the Burren Perfumery for Christmas, I was hell bent on making the trip up to visit this gorgeous spot and was not disappointed. Every area of the perfumery has been thought out even down to the toilets which are clean, eco friendly and where you also get a squirt of the... More
