Overview

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.

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.
