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.

Our stop off at the Burren Perfumery was a complete accident (we followed a tour bus down the wrong road) but I'm so glad we got off the beaten path. The Burren perfumery has some incredible perfumes (my favorite being the Summer Harvest) and the sales associates were very kind, super helpful and informative. They also have a cute cafe... More

The drive in to the Burren Perfumery was our favorite drive in Ireland. Small roads and just beautiful scenery. The Perfumery is tucked away in perfect quiet location. The shop is very nice with good selection of products. They ship home for free which was a bonus. The little cafe offered good soup and bread and just hit the spot... More

The Burren Perfumery is off the beaten track, by a long shot. But, the effort is worth it. The Perfumery make a variety of products which you can learn about. The Burren is home to over 75% of all the wildflowers in Ireland so the use of their scents is a natural extension for the Perfumery. They have a quaint... More

We stopped by Burren perfumery after people recommend it to us. Nice small shop but you don't need to stop unless you want to buy very expensive perfumes.

It seems from other reviewers that this little place might not have much business if not for the owners of B&Bs in the area. Our B&B host provided us with a great map of the Burren with suggested routes and places to visit. She was quite insistent that there were a few places that we "must visit", one of which... More

For the past four years I have stayed in the Burren, County Clare and I drive to the Perfumery. Yes of course I have purchased several perfumes, colognes, and candles. I enjoy the gardens, bird feeder activity, and cafe. The experience I haven't been able to duplicate anywhere in my country or other countries. The employees and owners are so... More

This is such a worthwhile place to visit, a must for anyone visiting the Burren. But take time to enjoy the experience. The shop has a magnificent range of products all manufactured on site, and the little gardens bloom with herbs and flowers. Lovely little cafe also on site with both indoor and outdoor seating with very pleasant friendly staff.... More

When passing we popped in to look at the manufacturing, but were blown away by the gorgeous gardens. Of course many roses are grown there, and also herbs, and the scents in the garden was most intoxicating. There is a small restaurant there which we didn't try. Do go, it's lovely.

This was my first visit to The Burren Perfumery & Tea Rooms. The food was excellent & the staff were very friendly. We walked through the garden which is very old world with all the little paths & herbs. The shop for the Perfumery was lovely & they have a terrific film on the flowers of the Burren with beautiful... More
