Our family had a lovely time at County Clare for Easter Brunch! The Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon and tarragon hollandaise was outstanding as were the American Brunch and Rueben sandwich which were the other items ordered. The atmosphere is pure Ireland and the service friendly and prompt. We will be back!

County Clare never disappoints. Time and time again, it serves great Irish fare. Warm and inviting, with a fireplace perfect for a winter's night. Plenty of beer and stout on tap. You'll swear your back in Ireland.

We spent a Sunday night in March at the County Clare. The price was right and the property had everything that we desired. It was walking distance to downtown and the Milwaukee Art Museum. We had an amazing time eating sheperd's pie, pot roast and the perfect Pint of Guiness. The bar/restaurant was truly a sight. We enjoyed sitting at...

I wanted to take my wife somewhere special for her 60th birthday, so I booked two nights at the County Clare Irish Inn and Pub (she really wanted to go back to Dublin, Ireland...LOL).

The hotel rooms are located above the bar. How convenient! It is really more an Inn though. Never felt hotelish. It was quiet upstairs and we slept well. Breakfast is included but Sunday breakfast offers far better fare than Monday's did. Rooms are older but clean and atmosphere is everything. Enjoyed the pub as well. Specials, which include beer and...

Hi David, Thank you for such a generous review. I'm really happy to hear that you felt our establishment was much more of an inn than that of a hotel and it seemed to surpass your expectations.

Took Family (5) There for lunch, we did not have reservations but only waited 15 minutes. Great menu that has a good variety on it.

Folks at UWM put me up here when I visited campus. ThMy room was clean, comfortable, and quiet, with a large window that provided lots of natural light for the few hours I was there during the day.

Hello and thank you so very much for the thoughtful review. I am happy that you were able to enjoy your room even if it was just a few hours. Natural light makes a world of difference.
