Although small and simple, the tea rooms at Sadie Chowen-Doyle's perfumery are pretty, with floral oilcloths, fresh flowers and mismatched crockery creating a happy riot of pastels - and everything they do is of high quality, made freshly on the premises, and uses local and organic produce.

Burren Perfumery Tea Rooms

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 & August, Sunday lunch is offered, with special dishes available (booking required), and organic wines are now offered by the glass (€3.20-3.50) or bottle (€18-22).

Seats 20; children welcome (high chair); open daily 11-4.15 (to 5 on Sun), Apr-Sep. Set 2 course L €15. Organic wine €18 a bottle or €3.20-3.50 per glass. Cafe closed Oct-Easter. [Perfumery open daily 9am-5pm all year (except Christmas); high season (Jun-Sep) open to 7pm.] MasterCard, Visa, Laser. abbreviations
