Stayed at this super cute and conveniently located Irish Inn for a short weekend trip. The staff were helpful and greeted us with fresh cookies on arrival. Our room was not ready so we sat at the outside pub tables and enjoyed a Guiness and potatoes. Yum!! The small Inn on top of the pup is pretty, small with recent... More

Fresh cookies when you check in! Cute rooms. Beds are a a little hard and pillows are flat but still able to sleep. Restaurant is delicious along with the pub. Very knowledgeable on all the different drinks offered. Stayed on a Thursday night and they had a guitarist who sang and played in the pub. Nice and relaxing and very... More

We stayed here for a family wedding. The rooms are clean and well appointed, the staff very friendly and helpful. We also did the weekend brunch which was delicious! The hotel location makes it great for walking or catching the trolley to tour Milwaukee.

County Clare has a B&B type feel but the rooms are spacious and it's fun to have the Pub on site. We used it for a wedding weekend with multiple event sites in central Milwaukee and it was convenient to all. Food and drink very nice at the Pub and the staff were all very friendly and helpful.

We recently spent a night here, and sad to say, this most recent experience did not match our previous visit. The hotel was not full, yet sadly we were placed in a room right next to the elevator/directly above the front lobby/directly above the back door. This caused us to hear everything that went on below us - including staff... More

We enjoyed good hearty home cooked food on a grey Sunday night. The Shepards Pie was tasty with creamy mashed potato. My husband had Irish Stew and was very happy. He said it tasted just 'like his mum's' Washed down with a cider and entertained by a guitarist it is s great place to relax and enjoy.

Had a family communion lunch recently. Tables were set nicely staff very friendly. Food was ok. The only problem that I had was that we were only seated and the staff were looking for our lunch choices. I felt we were rushed as there was a wedding at the hotel around the same time.
