The Burren Perfumery draws inspiration from the flora and beauty of the Burren landscape to create its signature scents, artisan range of hand-crafted soaps, certified organic creams and candles using the very best natural and organic ingredients sourced from all around the world.

A busy working factory, visitors are welcome free of charge and year-round to watch the Perfumery team members as they go about their daily tasks. All products are hand-made on-site and can be purchased in the Perfumery shop. Self-guided with additional free tours throughout the Summer season.

Visitors are able to nourish both body and soul with some refreshments at the Perfumery’s tea rooms – and by taking a stroll through the award-winning, organic educational herb Garden. Don’t miss the locally-shot short film outlining the history and beauty of the Burren.
