We deal with Irish companies and their distributors in North America. We’ve visited their factories and facilities in Ireland and these are people that we know personally. Being from Ireland we can offer you the inside track to the authentic Irish products at prices better than most and service that will keep you coming back aris is aris, (ah-reesh is ah-reesh), again and again.

I like the items in this store, but they are all very expensive for me. The only item that I have been able to buy is a bar of delicious Lavender soap. Now that the store is on the 2nd floor, I can no longer get there. No elevator.

Hi BubbeSuzie, thanks for the review. We have loads of fantastic value items besides the lavender soaps. Even though "'tis fierce expensive" to get our authentic Irish made goods all the way across the ocean we do provide wonderful value and I'll guarantee you while somebody may beat us by a few pennies on price, nobody will beat us on...

Biddy Murphy is a very nice Irish shop. It's somewhat hard to find if one doesn't know where it's located. The 2nd floor of Deboer etc Accounting Firm is where it's located. One has to go to the back of the parking lot and enter through the door there. Once inside the small lobby, a door with lots of steps... More

Hi Lemonaid Thank you for the kind comments. It may seem like a hard slog to make it up the stairs but while it may not be as authentic as going to Ireland, it's certainly less expensive and quicker to get the wee bit of a sense of the Emerald Isle. So come on over again and we will have... More

Hi Hoosier, I'm sorry you couldn't find the door. The main access to the building is from the main parking lot. The awning over the door that said "ENTRANCE" next to the Parking for Biddy Murphy Irish Gifts signs; that's where you will find us!! Local sign ordinances state that we can only have one business sign on the building;... More

This is a very classy and comprehensive Irish/Celtic shop. It is a gem in a smaller city like South Haven. A definite visit even if - or especially if - you aren't someone who would normally visit a Celtic shop. Great clothing, very nice jewelry, and other quality items at EXCELLENT prices. There are a few "typical" things like "Parking... More

A visit to South Haven is not complete until we go to Biddy Murphy's! Such a wonderful place to find authentic and beautifully crafted Irish products. It is also fun to listen to Ward tell a story or two.

You will not find a better shopkeeper than Ward Gahan, proprietor of Biddy Murphy Celtic Goods...except you might forget all about him after stepping into his shop. Sure, you may be exchanging stories about Tipperary or Comhaltas with Ward, but I'll bet my copy of Seamus Heaney poems that before long you'll be absorbed in the beautiful, carefully selected items...

This store carries only the highest quality Irish imports. Be prepared to pay for what you get, as this is not an inexpensive store, but you'll be very pleased with what you buy.
