“Better than any hotel in Milwaukee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2005

This place is great, it should not be classed as an Inn or B&B here, its way better than any hotel in Milwaukee.

The place has soul, lots of regulars in the bar, so its not just full of the usual business travellers. If your on your own just grab a seat at the bar and you'll get chatting to people almost immediately, its a great place to meet people.

The rooms are also great, large whirlpools, 4 poster beds, hope you like green, hey this is an Irish bar! ;)

My only minor complaint is the food is not that great but the Irish were never renowned for the food!

All I can say is check it out, I had an awesome stay!

What a delightful place to stay! The hotel was meticulously, spotlessly clean, and the staff was friendly and helpful, even letting us store our stash of brats and cheese in their big freezer and allowing us to retrieve them at 6 AM for an early flight. Our room was very comfortable, and the large whirlpool was a plus. The only, minor, concern was the thin, almost hollow door to the room. The pub closes at 2AM and we were awoken by people talking as they went to their rooms.
Milwaukee is a town full of neighborhood bars and the County Clare is the neighborhood bar with panache. The pub has a true Irish feel and the restaurant food is an excellent value. Very good Irish coffee with real whipped cream and your brand of Irish whiskey. Simple continental breakfast during the week and a full one over the weekend, complete with really good corned beef and eggs. Overall, we loved this place and would definitely stay there again. Parking is tight, so get the economy rental and don't worry about the dings.

We spent the night at the Clare on our wedding night on Feb 21st. The suite (which is really not different then the other rooms) was very spacious and comfortable. The Jacuzzi was perfect after a wonderfully long wedding day and settled us down prior to the gift opening day and leaving for Rome on our Honeymoon. The breakfast was ok, but the real charm was in the comfort and relaxing rooms. A great place to sneak away from the rest of your out of town guests...lol.

Beautiful hotel with the feel of Ireland. We had a great stay and enjoyed it so much we got a gift certificate for my sister. We had no problem with noise- there are many rooms and not all are right above the pub. Ask if you are concerned. Wood burning fireplace in pub. Good food. Huge baths. Looking forward to finding an excuse to go again!

Great food, beautiful rooms, and huge baths. It is above a lively pub so there will be some noise on the weekends, but it did not keep us up at all. Highly recommended.
