The Burren Perfumery
The Burren Perfumery is elemental. A morning or afternoon spent exploring the rugged campus of this natural world feels like time gathered from the Gods. Sadie Chowen and her team seem able to tap into our innermost beings, not just with their most beautiful scents and cosmetics, but also with the simple – elemental – cooking, and their beautiful, graceful, peaceful garden. Place all these elements together in the wilds of The Burren and you have one of the best experiences that you can enjoy anywhere in Ireland. The simple cooking in the Tea Rooms chimes with the elementalism of every part of this formidable enterprise, and the good soups, salads and bakes will fill up your belly whilst at the same time filling you up with goodness. Ms Chowen and her team are chasing the essence of everything they do, most notably in their perfumes and cosmetics, but also in the arrangement of the garden, the ease of the atmosphere, the soulfulness of the cooking. You won’t want to leave the Burren Perfumery.
