My wife and I stayed at the County Clare Inn in Milwaukie, WI for three nights, Friday through Monday morning.
The inn is a bed and breakfast. You get a breakfast plastic card for every day, entitling you to a free breakfast. We didn’t see any restrictions. The inn also includes an Irish pub, multiple award winning restaurant and pub. This isn’t a typical Irish pub like in so many cities. This is as authentic as I’ve seen, copying pubs from the actual County Clare in Ireland. The food is great and varied. Traditional Irish meals plus other options. Everybody eats, from omnivores, gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, dairy lovers, whatever. Their Shepherd’s Pie is awesome and can be standard, vegetarian or vegan. The grilled salmon is one of the best I’ve had.
Their breakfasts range from Irish full breakfast to ala cart and everything we had was very good. Weekends have full breakfast, until noon. Weekdays are more like a typical hotel, with custom omelets and a serve-yourself bar, but also good.
We stayed in a 2nd floor suite, fairly inexpensive. The pub stays open until 1am with live Irish music but we could not hear it at all. We had dinner and the pub/restaurant was very loud, and in our room a few minutes later, couldn’t hear anything. The suite facing the street does get street noise, including anybody being loud at the front door, but no other noise. Even nearby rooms or people in the hall don’t come through much.
The suite had a king sized bed and large flat TV and fast, free WiFi.
The service staff are all amazing. Always very nice, professional. We’ve stayed other places and only had a few be this good. Every single person in the inn or pub was all over themselves to be helpful.
And finally, the location is excellent. Two supermarkets are within about 6 blocks. Veterans Park is just a few blocks to the East with miles of running trails and Lake Michigan, with kite selling stores, etc.
Highly recommended in all respects.
