My husband & I had the best experience at Innisfree this past weekend! The B&B was beautiful, peaceful & clean. Stephanie made us feel so welcome & at home during our stay. I have food allergies and she went out of her way both mornings to prepare a personalized breakfast for me. We will be visiting South Bend again and when we do, this is the only place where we plan to stay!

Innkeeper Response
We are so happy you chose to stay with us! Thank you for coming and we look forward to seeing you again. It was a pleasure meeting you both and I'm glad you had a great weekend.

Notre Dame weekend at Inisfree

4.6 on October 19, 2016

When we first tried to get a reservation for the Notre Dame/Stanford football weekend, we ran into brick walls with everything being sold out. Since I had contacted the people at Inisfree, they contacted me when they had a room open up!!! The inn is older, but clean and oh so charming. Kelly was a gracious host and cooked up a wonderful breakfast for us both mornings! Loved it here and will definitely go back again!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind review! We're glad you gave us a chance and hope to see you again sometime.

The stay was great and the room (and house) had a lot of old Irish charm. Cindy can really make French toast, and is helpful if you have any questions. Would recommend to anyone.

First stay, will return

This was our first stay at Innisfree, and it was an enjoyable stay. Loved the Victorian decor and old claw-foot bathtub (although it took us a while to figure out the shower lever and the curtains didn't keep water from getting on the floor and walls). We were in the Michael Collins room and shared a bath with a couple who was traveling with us. I think it would have been difficult sharing the bath if we didn't know the other guests. Breakfast was served a little later than we're used to (9 am), but coffee and other snacks were always available. (Loved the plate of cookies outside our room and fridge/coffee on the second floor.) The bed was very comfortable. The TV was a little quirky (multiple remotes were a little confusing). The innkeeper was very good about sending us easy-to-follow directions on how to enter the building when we arrived. The location is also great. We were able to walk to a number of restaurants. Some are just a few blocks away, but we are walkers, so we were fine walking across the river( a little over a mile) to other restaurants and bars. We will definitely come back although I'd go with the in-room bath next time.

Great hospitality

Beautiful house, very warm and inviting. The owner is very gracious. Some of the beds have very soft mattresses so if you have any back issues ask for rooms with a firm mattress.
