Very welcoming and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in the house to attend funeral services. During this difficult time, we were able to gather together and relax comfortably in this finely appointed property. Everything was there that we needed, the beds were all comfortable, and the house is beautifully furnished. We would love to stay here again the next time we return to South Bend.

We can't say enough about our stay at the

Irish Haven. As long time ND fans we traveled to South Bend from NJ for the ND UMASS game as our son attends UMASS. As all of the other reviews indicate this home is in a beautiful , quiet neighborhood close to shopping and Notre dame. There is nothing that the owners did not provide ! The home was very clean and was roomy enough for our large group. The porch was fabulous and we spent a good deal if time out there . We can't say enough about the home and will definitely visit again when we return to South bend!

Perfect In All Respects

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about this wonderful home and its owners, who were so helpful and responsive...and thoughtful too! The bedrooms & bathrooms were perfect (great shower in the Mstr Ba), the common areas really conducive to gathering (living room, pool table room with bar and mostly the gorgeous side porch with fans and fireplace--we ate dinner there several nights!)

Cindy has thought of everything you could need for a perfect SB/ND weekend. We were there 5 nights for our son's graduation from Notre Dame, and our extended family of 9 were so comfortable in the house. Everything you could want is there, the kitchen is great, including 2 coffeemakers (if you have caff and decaf drinkers in the family like I do), and equipped to serve a large # of people. We used the bbq one evening and it was better than ours at home! The house has a great location, close to campus, Martins groceries, etc.

We felt the rate was very reasonable, considering you were allowed to stay an extra night, which was great for us and really came in handy. The finishing touch was the gift basket and frig full of welcome drinks and snacks, and the personalized graduation gift awaiting us and our son upon arrival---very generous and thoughtful, in the true Irish spirit!

Hope to come back there for a football weekend or who know, maybe even a wedding at the ND Basilica?! My highest regards for the Irish Haven and its owners.

Family Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Irish Haven is the perfect Notre Dame home in a beautiful neighborhood. The location was close to all amenities and campus. There was plenty of room for 6+ adults. The house was well stocked and very comfortable. We were lucky enough to have a warm December weekend, but would love to visit again in the fall to take advantage of the outdoor fireplace. What a wonderful home and a terrific stay. We will definitely rent here again!

Perfect staging area for Notre Dame wedding

  • 5 of 5

Five star reviews for Irish Haven all the way around! It was the ideal location to use as a staging area for our daughter's Notre Dame wedding. Plenty of room for not only our immediate family as well as some members of the bridal party. Owner was very responsive to emails. Very reasonable nightly rate, which was less than the cost of multiple hotel rooms. In addition to all the conveniences of home, the house had shower toiletries, sodas, water and a welcome basket stocked with munchies and a bottle of wine. Location just off Ironwood made it very easy to get to and from campus. Beautiful side porch complete with outdoor fireplace. Property was well-maintained and clean. This property makes the ideal location for football weekend, family reunion or, as in our case, a Notre Dame wedding. Highly recommend it!

A beautiful Irish haven!

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed at Irish Haven several times, and every time it has been absolutely perfect! Most recently we stayed at the house in December for the weekend of my wedding at Notre Dame, and it was the perfect place for my large family to stay comfortably. Its large size, like-home comfort, and ideal location so close to campus helped to relieve much of the potential stress associated with a wedding weekend. It is a beautiful home, and its Notre Dame décor will make any ND Alum or fan feel right at home!
