My husband an I stayed here to celebrate our 20 year wedding anniversary. The Inn was recommended to us by a friend and it didn't disappoint. The room was large and very nice. We had dinner in the attached restaurant. The food was delicious and well priced. The restaurant was a bit noisy but it was a Saturday night and... More

Celebrating my husband's 64th birthday. Couldn't take him to Ireland; County Clare will do! The online reservation process was painless. The staff, from front desk to pub were friendly and helpful. The decor was fun--"American-Irish" and the art glass in the pub/dining room beautiful. Our room was small and comfortable, we had the "snug" style. Everything clean and in good... More

My wife and I were going to a Milwaukee Bucks game and decided to stay overnight at the County Clare that night. We’ve stayed here many times in the past but haven’t been here for several years.

I am reviewing the restaurant only. Very pleased that there were vegan options and that the server was well informed. I had a vegan "corned beef" sandwich. It was good, and all about the horseradish. Can't wait to go back and try some of their other vegan dishes. Pleasing decor in a downtown location.

Different than all the "cookie cutter" hotels that are the same city to city. We had plans to other things in Milwaukee, but liked it so much that we just decided to have dinner and drinks in the restaurant/pub and stay in. Friendly staff. We will stay again and definitely recommend it to anyone thinking about staying.

Stayed here on 2/4 and 2/5/16. The room was comfy, quaint and charming. Bathroom was large and well stocked. Everyone was very friendly and helpful from the Front desk clerk to Housekeeping girls.

Stayed three nights at the County Clare for business and got a great rate. The rooms are quaint, spacious, and comfortable. We dined one night and everyone was pleased with the food. The breakfast that is included is substantial, and has great coffee. The free parking is like extra foam on the Guinness.

Overall: Fun place to be; the layout is pretty cool, it has a nice warm feeling, something much needed in Jan/Feb in Wisconsin. With the fireplace going, semi-dark lighting, and rich food, this really appealed to me when we wanted a good Irish-American pub experiance. Drinks: Their tap list isn't as expansive as I was expecting. Very typical taps, dominated... More
