Our stay here was absolutely the getaway needed. We stayed in the king room. The hotel was spotless, the room was so cozy with plenty of space. I loved the decor. The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. The bed was comfortable and the continental breakfast was nice. We also enjoyed the bar (with social distancing). They have done a great job making the hotel safe during COVID by individually wrapping all breakfast items, keeping the hotel spotless, and placing a shield at the front desk. We were extremely pleased and I highly recommend if anyone needs a getaway, come to the County Clare as soon as possible.

I was drugged here by the bartender Greg W Steffke, and sexually assaulted. Anyone that knows anything suspicious, please speak up.

Sleep in your car. You'll have a better experience. Old, beyond dated decor, and the entire inn has this weird, musty smell. Rooms only have queen beds, the rollaway was like sleeping on a marshmallow, the shower is a pull back plastic curtain, the toilet is in a closet the size of a tin can, and the white sink had cracks/stains near the drain. You hear the band playing downstairs in the pub when you are trying to sleep at 11:00pm on a Saturday night. Oh yeah, and we came back to our room mid-morning to pick up our jackets and our room door WAS OPEN! No hotel staff to be found, except the cleaning cart was outside the door and dust rag was on the table. I think they vanished into thin air! Like I said, sleep in your vehicle either that or another hotel/motel/b&b alternative. The only POSITIVE thing here is that they give you a chocolate chip cookie in a bag when you check in! (and it was delicious!)

This isn't a big modern hotel – nor is it meant to be….it's a quaint inn located over an Irish pub. If you enter from the front, you walk through the entrance of the pub back to the check-in desk. The rooms are a good size, clean and tidy, and looks a bit "lived in" – as if you were staying in your aunt's guest room. The bathroom area is separated off and had a jacuzzi tub, (small) shower that had good water pressure, a "water closet" and a sink area (which is also where the coffee maker was located). There isn't exactly a closet, but there is a luggage rack and a bar for hanging your garments (on top of this is an iron and ironing board).

The pub was also very clean and warm feeling. Everyone that we encountered at the inn and the pub was friendly and helpful.

Best Things:
Location! This was by far the best thing about County Clare Inn. The Inn is located with-in waking distance to the lake, shops, restaurants/cafes and many of the events that happen in Milwaukee (Bastille Day was being celebrated the Sunday we were there).

The price. Honestly, this place was very reasonably priced given the location and room. At the time we stayed, they offered a promotion for select days of the week which included: a standard queen room, breakfast, parking, and two drinks at the pub.

Things to think about:
One of the draws of this hotel is that it offers breakfast….and maybe if you stay on the weekend and are able to order from their breakfast menu you'll have a better breakfast experience than I did. But, if you are staying during the week, here is what you should expect: Breakfast is held in the pub. Along the bar there is coffee offered along with hot water and teas. There was also a basket of apples and a selection of 2 (or 3?) cereals. There is also a small refrigerator that held some milk and yogurt. In addition, there is a stand that had bread, English muffins, and bagels. The latter were individually wrapped. Finally, there was a gentleman that would make you eggs/an omelet. Omelet and apple were good. Bagel was stale, and it got tossed. Coffee was okay. So….breakfast was okay, but after seeing some of the other reviews I was expecting a little more — just setting expectations for you here.

The hotel was clean, but around the tub could use a little bleach as there was some "darker" (mold?) spots along the edge.

Overall:
If you are looking for a streamlined, minimalistic modern hotel – then this isn't your place. But, if you're looking for a friendly, comfortable place to stay in Milwaukee that has a great location and good price — stay here!

Hint/Suggestion:
Parking is in the back of the hotel. It is a little tight, and they may ask for your keys if you need to double park in the lot. If you are able, back into your spot. We watched a few cars juggling to get out in the morning.

Good for the price. Parking, brunch, all good. It is a pretty good value and on the weekend it includes brunch in the pub.

There are only a couple drawbacks. If another room around you turns on the jacuzzi tub in their room, you have the pleasure of hearing it. The bed is hard… and a bit off the ground. However, you can use the ironing board to vault into the bed if it is too high for you.

Love love love. The hotel was clean and it's so quaint. It's more like renting a room in a home than a hotel. Large jacuzzi tub, bright and nicely decorated rooms. Very nicely decorated and the stay was comfortable. Friendly and attentive staff. Can't wait to go back, great location!

County Clair is an kitschy Irish themed hotel and restaurant located less than a mile from Lake Michigan. While the hotel does have free parking the building is worn and there isn't a lobby. Just a hall that goes by the check in desk. What makes this review a one star is that the we were given a room next to the elevator on the top floor. The air conditioning equipment must be located just above our room because there was a constant rumble that shook the walls. The front desk couldn't move us because the inn was full. So now I'm laying here in bed listening to a constant low frequency rumble accompanied by a intermittent higher pitched wall vibration. I hope my ear plugs work or else it could be a long night.

Homey, clean rooms, friendly service, and an outstanding location make this our go to place when staying downtown in Milwaukee. But the amenities go on…free parking, an included hearty breakfast (or Sunday brunch), and one of the city's best Irish pubs located right downstairs! Really don't have anything bad to say about it.

This was a nice stay but not as nice as we expected after reading other reviews. Pros: friendly staff, hot tub, free breakfast. Cons: room smelled strongly of cleaning supplies (luckily they let us move to one where we could open the window), coffee maker was stuck into a small space where it overhung the bathroom sink, not very comfortable quilt/pillows, and the weekday breakfast didn't offer as much as I thought- probably would be better on a weekend. No major complaints and very friendly staff, but I expected a nicer room and a more substantial breakfast after reading other's reviews when I booked.

This place is all the reviews say it is. My rating is 4.5, based on some very minor things. The staff were wonderful, and it wouldn't be a big stretch to imagine being in Ireland itself. The full Irish breakfast was superb, but put the brown bread in your pocket for the dog, as it tasted precisely like Milk Bone dog biscuits did in the 1950's. I can attest to this.

Booked a night here for my wifes birthday. We had spent a week in Ireland traveling from pub to pub and staying in rooms above the pub about 20 years ago. We were trying to recapture that wonderful trip for just a night………..and we were not dissappointed! Great pub with some of the friendliest and professional staff I have met in a casual dining place in the US. The food was good traditional fish and chips for a friday and they had Kilkenny crwam on tap! That is a rarity in the states. The room was spacious cute with a large bathtub right up the stairs from the pub. Full Irish bfast in the morning that was satisfying and needed after a night of cream, somw whisky and traditiobal irish music. Recommended as a great weekend place to stay. Will be making morw trips just to stay here as a destination.

Our son recommended this place and we finally got the opportunity in Nov. when we attended murder and mayhem in Milwaukee. I asked for a suite and it was on the first floor. The LR could use more light. This had a fridge, later I found out you need to ask for these, so we got lucky. I love how they offer a free breakfast. We couldn't use it because it was daylight savings and didn't want to wait an hour to leave. Sat. morning was a nightmare trying to get out of our parking spot. There is so much activity Friday night and the gal at the desk has to do double duty moving cars around. The lot is very tight but it's there. For all its quirks you'll want to keep coming back.

What a great little find! This place is adorable. Our room was quite spacious. The semi-separate bedroom and bath space was nice. We appreciated the complimentary brunch on Sunday morning and the free parking. The cookies at check in were a nice touch. The staff was friendly. The place was very quiet, which we thought might not be the case given that it's above a bar. We liked that the location was a little bit away from Water Street and the chaos of downtown. Yet it was still convenient to everything we wanted to see and do while in Milwaukee. The price was also very reasonable. We would stay here again.

Great location. Private free parking. Sunday romance package includes free drinks at the bar and free breakfast. Each room is clean and comfortable with a two person whirlpool bath. Friendly staff.

When I lived in Milwaukee, I always wanted to stay at County Clare. I liked visiting the pub that much! So when I heard Weird Al was going to be at Summerfest a few months ago, I booked a room for the boyfriend and myself. It could not have been more perfect–free parking right behind the building, walking distance to the Summerfest grounds, and even free breakfast of the menu in the restaurant! Bummer that there was't time for us to enjoy the whirlpool tub.

My only complaints are that the sheets smelled strong of chlorine and the bed made some loud creaks when we get in & out of it. Also, we could hear conversations in the hallway (but there are signs asking people to keep it down, so the inn is doing their part).

I would definitely stay here again!

Great food, great people, quaint room, affordable. Reminded me of the hospitality I experienced on an actual vacation to Ireland.

I've never stayed in the inn, but the pub is one of my favorite Irish pubs in Milwaukee! It's got a great atmosphere and bartenders who make you feel like family. They can make a mean drink too! Even if you're not sure what to drink, with just a few questions they can make you a fantastic drink that suits your wants! And the food is pretty fantastic as well!

Stayed here with family who were part of a wedding party. Nice and cozy with rooms that are like staying in Grandma's guest room; very clean but starting to show a little wear. The pub was fun with great service from everyone and food quality was very good. I'll come again if this is where the group is meeting. Otherwise, I'll opt for trying something else.

Amazing service at the County Clare Inn! Reviewing the Inn: the staff are all extremely inviting and sweet! Check-in was great we even got fresh baked cookies as a welcome snack! The room was adorable and very clean. We stayed in the standard room and it was wonderful a nice whirlpool tub to relax in and from what we could here on our way out to eat really good live Irish music! Thanks County Clare for the service we will be back!!

My parents came to visit me from Florida this past spring, and since it was pretty much my mother's sole vacation in a long time, I wanted to plan it well for her. She adores B&Bs, and while I'd never been inside, though I live nearby, I was pretty sure it would be more up her alley than any other nearby hotels. She was more than a little dubious, especially after having visited me in DC and Boston ("A quaint B&B — in *Milwaukee*? Really, honey?"), but she absolutely fell in love. Staff was friendly and helpful, the room was comfortable and charming, location perfect and prices reasonable; we also really enjoyed the lively atmosphere from the pub downstairs. We did eat there for lunch once or twice for its convenience, and it was perfectly fine, but it's not really the type of food we usually go for, so I have no strong opinion about the pub. Definitely would return/recommend.

The County Clare Inn was centrally located, clean, had jacuzzi tubs, and a great pub downstairs that stayed open late. Sometimes the service at the restaurant could be a bit slow but overall the experience was more than satisfactory.

County Clare was a lovely place to stay and very nicely situated in Milwaukee. The prices are remarkable for the experience you're receiving and having the pub downstairs made the visit especially nice as we could bring a pint and snack up to our room as we relaxed before bed. The beds were a bit firmer than I like but there were tons of pillows available, which made me immensely happy.

They have a small parking lot but will valet your car if there are no spots when you come in. I've spent a decent amount of time in Ireland and while there were certain aspects of that experience that were absent, the Irish breakfast and other food offerings were great. Also, fantastic Guinness pour and mixes. Thanks for one of the best pints of Guinness and Guinness mixes (like the Vanilla Vodka one or the one with Espresso vodka) that I've had in the US.
