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).
