Owner description: 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 love this store! Ward is so engaging you can't help but enjoy your visit to his store. Ahh... the merchandise; you will feel like you have died and gone to Ireland. If you are into all things Irish, this is the place for you. The selection is fantastic, and I know I walked out spending more than I had planned on. In case you do forget something, you can always order online.

My husband and I stopped here on our first trip to South Haven and love it so much that it is a required stop each trip. They have amazing authentic goods. I bought a lovely wool cape that I took on our honeymoon to Ireland. Last fall we were in town with a group of couples and everyone enjoyed the store. I highly recommend it!

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 for Irish only" signs that folks with an Irish focus will like but this shop has a much broader appeal than that.

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.

My Wife loves Celtic collectibles, and she said this store was fantastic (I was outside with fussy baby). She came out with a couple of bags and a higher balance on my credit card. My 5 year old son picked out a necklace that he has not put down. He loves it. This place is somewhat hard to find, it is not on the main block with most stores, so get a map or ask like we did, but don't leave South Haven without enjoying this shop.

Go raibh maith agat - thank you for the feedback - Yes we are Upstairs at 610 Phoenix Street, opposite the Fifth third Bank next to the Center for the Arts...well worth the short walk one block from the Main Drag.
