This was such a pretty house, with lots of reception rooms downstairs and places to curl up in an armchair and relax - I wish I'd had more time there. A warm welcome from the innkeepers, and everything nice and clean.

This B & B was a lovely change from staying on the "main drag" in SB. A few gentle suggestions. Small information "manual" gues info., in each room with routines of B &B contact #, local dining w phone # & directions. Availability of delivery food, we were tired after game & tried to find Pizza delivery etc. Also how to use space heater, tv & cable access. A larger variety of available complimentary beverages for guests. Bottled water always good, but coke, few beers, juices would have been nice. Also, we were fine but some guests had conflict about shared bathroom facilities. Could put 2 hooks per room with room name painted above for towel use & re-use & all the same BR items guest size maybe in shower "basket" for each room ie toiletries shampoo, conditioner soap Qtips cotton balls disp. razor etc. Innkeepers were lovely and hospitable.

We recently stayed in the M. Collins room. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Cindy was a wonderful hostess; we felt very welcome. Saturday morning breakfast was delicious! The home is just beautiful!

Owner was very accommodating. We were going to be arriving late and she was very easy to work with. Very enjoyable stay.

We are a Notre Dame family, alumnus and parents, and love staying in the historic area of South Bend in a beautiful Victorian-style home. There are many spacious, well-decorated and Ireland-themed rooms. It's a welcome change from your standard small-roomed motels with pre-packaged breakfast items. Cindy goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable, and serves authentic homemade breakfasts. Charming!

My time at the Innisfree was lovely. The Seamus room was just right for my solo stay and the inn was a peaceful getaway during an otherwise hectic business trip. The breakfast is continental-style during the week (which was fine for me) and the innkeeper, Cindy, was friendly and acommodating. I will definitely look to stay at the Innisfree on future trips to South Bend.

Met some great people. I had to be at work early so missed breakfast but there were things to grab for breakfast. Will be staying again! Already have a reservation. Am reading about the Irish woman pirate. Beautiful aged home to admire and browse through!

We were fortunate to have both grand daughters free to take "one last" overnight trip with us as we did thru their early growing up years before school and activities took over their schedules. We chose Notre Dame in South Bend Ind for grandpa to visit the campus he would go to with his own father in his younger years for football games. We have never stayed in a B&B and so glad we chose this one for our first experience. We stayed in the 3rd room floor of this beautifully restored 1890s home which afforded us extra time to spend with the 14 & 18 yr olds. They enjoyed the reading nooks to read as well as connect with the free WiFi offered. I encourage any family to use this area as there are enough beds and walking room for a family of 4-6. Our next morning breakfast was delish and the conversation enjoyed with our hostess/owner. High Recommend this B&B !!!
M.A. Lahey Room is decorated with an eye toward comfort and warmth. A queen size bed with rockers and books are among some of the vintage appointments. One small balcony overlooks the front and side of the house.
Michael Collins Room has its own fireplace with oak trim and tiled hearth. A Queen size bed and sitting area invite you to stay awhile in this formal room. Extensive fretwork decorates this room.
Grainne O'Malley Room is historically furnished with a poster queen size bed. With its own sitting area in the turret, it is as cozy and cheerful as it is elegant.
W.B. Yeats Room has a double bed and a view of the side yard. Decorated with a quaint touch - it is enchanting.
Seamus Room has its own shower and pedestal sink. An authentic iron bed and century old family heirlooms dominate this room. Overlooks rear and side yards.
Schocklehorne Room is our largest bedroom area. It has its own bath, with jetted tub, shower and pedestal sink. A king bed with two twins and a daybed, make this a family suite or just for the two of you. Turreted reading room is stocked with novels. Stained glass windows and peaked ceiling adds interest.
