    We didn't plan on stopping here, but were pleasantly surprised when we stumbled upon this lovely perfumery. The staff were incredibly kind and the products amazing. I'm happy to be able to take home a little piece of The Burren in the form of their fragrances.

    You must go here if you are anywhere in the area. The ride thru the Burren alone is worth the trip. Stock up on gifts; soap, candles, balms and of course perfumes. The free tour is very informative.

    This is a hidden gem. The folks were lovely. They offer a short video about the Burren. There was a tea room with their local teas and an outdoor garden to walk through which was not in bloom yet. They offer samples of their products and the essential oils are amazing. I went home with the bergamot oil and woods parfume. They have the most unique seasonal perfumes. I will return!
