When touring Clare you will be pleased to find this charming spot - the perfumery is beautifully laid out, with a herb garden (where many native plants are grown - and later used in the organic herbal teas), pleasing old buildings and lovely biodynamic scents.
The little tea rooms are beside the distillation room, where essential oils are extracted in a traditional still, and open onto a courtyard opposite the perfumery shop.
Although small and simple, the tea rooms are pretty, with floral waxed tablecloths, fresh flowers and cups and saucers all creating a happy mismatch of pastels - and what they do is of high quality, made freshly on the premises, and uses local and organic produce.
At lunch time there might be summer minestrone & herbs soup with brown bread, or salad plates - a home-made organic goat's cheese & spinach quiche served with mixed salad - or, from a range of traditional home baking, you might just have a lavender flower muffin.
There are all kinds of teas and tisanes, also natural juices - and coffee is served in individual cafetières.
In July and August, Sunday lunch is offered, with special dishes available (booking required), and organic wines are now offered by the glass (about €3.20-3.50) or bottle (about €18-22).
