  • Lovely place to visit, especially in the early throws of Autumn. Beautiful products, they make great keepsakes for those visiting as so many of the smells of Irish countryside are captured there...  more »

  • We got there in plenty of time for the 12 o clock tour. It was splendid! Spotless and relaxed. Our tour guide gave us a very comprehensive and detailed explanation of the procedures and offered every kind of help and support...no task too much trouble. It's a feast for the senses.
  • Subtle and simple, the Burren Perfumery sweetens the smell of the Irish country side with floral smells and seasonal fragrances. I definitely would have liked to see the creation of the perfume itself which unfortunately wasn't part of the experience. There was, however, a beautiful video (with stunning pictures) that displayed the rich and rather amazing Burden area. Quaint and bright. Lovely place!
  • The owner took her time to explain each fragrance and what notes were in which fragrance. I feel in love with Frond! My husband loves the Winter Woods. We then went on to purchase soaps, sample fragrances, lotions, facial serums and herbal balms. We loved bringing them back to the States for our family members as gifts. They now purchase online because they loved them so much, too.
  • A great rest in the middle of the Burren. This perfume shop is a factory museum Cafe and showroom for sense and fragrances. Bike rack, although I don't know how someone would ride a bike through the narrow twisting roads of Ireland to get here. We enjoyed spending time playing cards over a cup of tea karma while the rest of us took a tour of the factory and the showroom. Nice sense, in the great way to resume the ride refreshed and smelling pretty. Great toilet facilities, too: clean and
  • a really cool place to visit, the cafe was lovely, nice service and very tasty foods. Indeed, I did really like the stories around how the flora is used to make the products at the Perfumery. The Burren Perfumery is an overall really nice place to visit.
