We've stayed here two or three times now and have always had a very nice time. The rooms are inviting, personal, and not like those produced by more corporate hotel chains. Very homey. Hot tubs in rooms are awesome. Overall a very nice feel for a romantic night or two away. Having the Irish restaurant downstairs is great. We usually...

This is our second visit to this hotel. The rooms are nicely appointed and spaceous. Easy parking, friendly staff. My only complaint was the coarseness of the sheets, they were quite scratchy. Other than that we loved the downstairs pub it is cozy and fun with a genuine Irish feel. I would stay here again.

Happy New Year! Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay with us. I love hearing how much you appreciated the pub and your room. As for the sheets, that is something I will certainly look into. I'm sorry they were not as soft as they could have been. I hope you will be back for a third stay! Slainte!

Oh, I love County Clare. When I lived in town, we were there meeting friends and going to movie nights. Now, I treat myself once a year for my birthday. Get the suite if you're there more than a night; you'll appreciate the extra sitting room. We still meet friends for drinks and eats. Love the root soup and fish...

Stayed for the weekend at the County Clare. King Room. Spacious with nice sofa & chairs. Huge bathroom with whirlpool tub (didn't use it). Guinness & Kilkenny (along with about 10 others) on tap. Great little Pub. Great Restaurant with Irish fare. Nice to sit by the fire & have a pint.
