The Irish Inn B&B - Rooted In Southern Illinois

The Irish Inn has hosted guests from all 50 states and 36 foreign countries, but it is very much rooted in Southernmost Illinois.  In its tenth year, this bed and breakfast delivers a unique travel experience to guests from all walks of life.  With a Belfast born innkeeper, The Irish Inn offers a wee bit of Europe in the Shawnee National Forest.  The B&B is rooted in Southern Illinois, because the innkeeper's wife's ancestors were among the earliest in this region.  Come to see the world class art at The Irish Inn, but also the work of Native American artists, and paintings of ancestors that will take you back in time.  The roots in this region run deep as this photograph illustrates in the most natural of settings.  Photograph by Jeff Melone.
