“Charming at a reasonable price”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

Room was comfortable--not a lot of frills but perfectly fine as a unique home base for a Milwaukee weekend. The staff was super, accommodating our need to park before official check-in and helping us when our plans changed last minute. I loved being able to take my complimentary breakfast in the excellent Irish restaurant and pub each morning.

Room Tip: Spend a little time adjusting the heater in the room before you crash for the night. We ended up se...

Perhaps the most romantic room I have ever stayed in and is perfect lodging for a couple. Please note, this is definitely not for for a girls week away or guys weekend. The shower opens into the room and there is a jacuzzi for two. Zero privacy so you better love the one you are with.

Staff are friendly and helpful. Food is good, the breakfast omelets are outstanding. It's a great Irish pub, popular drinking spot, with evening entertainment. Location is outstanding, walking distance to downtown (but the bus stop is also located just in front). Minutes away from the lake and the Art Museum.

Room Tip: Parking and breakfast is included. Check their web site for discounts.

We've stayed at County Clare several times and we always have a fantastic time! This is a gorgeous Inn! The restaurant and pub are lovely with excellent food and a great pint of Guinness! The brunch is lovely as well. Most weekends they have live music and it's always a roaring good time!

Room Tip: we stayed in room 215 and it was large and beautiful!

pfffft.... don't bother going here... there is NO PARKING for the customers... what little parking there is for the hotel patrons is around back and only holds around 10 cars... the parking that is on the street is full constantly and you CAN'T find a spot... you can ride around and around for forever... it took us over 45 minutes to find a space. Once we finally did, we get inside....they inform us it would be OVER and HOUR before we will have a table.. SERIOUSLY!!!!! NEVER AGAIN WILL WE EVER GO THERE... needless to say, we DID NOT eat there...

Stayed on a cold March weekend. Heat came up nicely in the room, the hot whirlpool took away any chill from outside. Brunch was good corned beef hash+ for the three of us. Bloody Mary was Wisconsin style - big, spicy, olives, potato, cheese, sausage, and a pickle - with a beer chaser. Sunday deal was great with a nightcap provided.

We stayed at County Clare for a short get away. We booked a suite at a fairly reasonable rate. The temp outside was about 18. When we went into the room there was no heat on. It took a long time for the heater to warm the room up. The heater was hard to adjust and noisy. Did not have a good nights sleep. Breakfast was do it yourself, which was not expected. We were hoping for a much better stay.

If a trip to Ireland is not in the cards but you still want a taste of the Emerald Isle, then book a stay at the County Clare in Milwaukee.

The County Clare is an older 3 story building that sits just off the Lake and just North of downtown, both are within walking distance (less than a mile). Rooms are well maintained and large. Included with your room is a full breakfast and parking.

The restaurant is small, but the breakfast we had each morning was suburb. We also visited the restaurant for the Friday Fish dinner, which was excellent.

Just as other reviewers have mentioned, the bathroom is an open concept, so not a lot of privacy for dressing. This could be an issue for a family with teenagers sharing the same room. Also, the TV was out of the 90's, small, analog and seemed out of place for a hotel at this price point. Finally, although the parking is free, there are not enough spaces for all guests, so the parking lot is really glorified valet parking. This may be an issue if you are using your car a lot during your stay.

Overall, we found a nice hotel close to downtown and the lake for a good overall value. We would stay here again.
