This place is awesome. Stopped here for a few nights on our way to northern Wisconsin for vacation. The whole place is beautiful. The front desk person was very polite. The pub was perfect, our room was huge, clean and comfy. Had dinner in the restaurant...so good. On site parking and Uber to get all around town. Don't miss this... More

I believe County Clare has one of the best Bloody Mary's out there. Pretty funny, since I couldn't find a Bloody Mary anywhere in Ireland! Stopped recently on a Sunday night, had a bloody and some appetizers, good as always. Love this place! Only downfall was they close the outdoor area early so we had to sit inside on a... More

I almost hate to let this secret out but this place is the bomb!! Cute, quaint, clean, friendly and economically feasible. Rates are half of a chain hotel in downtown Milwaukee, free parking, and free breakfast. Thoroughly enjoyed my one night stay. My room must have had a bed that was already refurbished as I enjoyed a wonderful night sleep.... More

We have stayed several times at the County Clare and we love staying there. However the mattress pad on the bed was at least 6 inches short from the top of the bed.

Good morning. Thank you for taking the time to write such a thorough review.

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.
