Our home, Irish Haven, is located approximately 1 to 1 1/2 miles from the University of Notre Dame. There are four bedrooms (3 with queen beds, 1 with twins), 4 bathrooms, a finished basement with two futons (extra stuffing for comfortable sleeping), 2 fireplaces inside, and a large beautiful porch with an outdoor fireplace. Inflatable mattresses and extra bedding are supplied if you need additional sleeping arrangements.
Irish Haven was built in the 1920's and exudes all the charm of that era; however, it was completely renovated to provide all the luxuries of a modern home. Central Air, modern kitchen with all new appliances, bathrooms remodeled and the huge side porch added. Wireless Internet, Plasma TVs throughout the house, I-Pod docking station, and CD player with AM/FM tuner were also added. The master bedroom has it's own bathroom and an office area. There is a pool table, books, games, DVDs and CDs there for your entertainment. Parking available for ND football.
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!
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!
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!
This house was awsome. It was centrally located to everything. We had such a great time there we will use this house again when in South Bend.
We’ve stayed at the Irish Haven several times and can’t say enough about how much we’ve enjoyed each visit! The house is beautiful, spacious – perfect for a larger group or family – and located in a lovely neighborhood very close to Notre Dame. The Irish-themed decor made us feel right at home, and was complemented by a large kitchen and dining area, pool table, furnished basement with plenty of games and a state of the art entertainment system. For those visiting in the Fall for football games, the huge outside porch is a great relaxing place to spend time together.
We just had a family reunion at Irish Haven and everyone had a great time. The house was in excellent condition, the amenities were more than expected. The beds were very comfortable with high quality linens and towels. Little extras like shampoo, soaps, kitchen condiments, movies, games, etc were unexpected. The porch was the favorite place for everyone to congregate.
The house is very kid friendly even though there is not a big yard. The location is close to Ironwood which is a major road to get any where north/south in South Bend. The owner was very easy to work with and we had no problems with checking in or checking out.
