I went here with a business travel companion as he has family from County Clare, Ireland, visits there regularly, and he was curious about this place. I'm kind of indifferent about Irish restaurants, so I felt I was kind of just along for the ride. We ended up enjoying a great meal and Irish beer. I trust my friend when... More

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 (10 to 15 minute walk). We had an amazing time eating sheperd's pie, pot roast and the perfect Pint of Guiness. The bar/restaurant was truly a... More

We stay here every year during Summerfest. The staff is amazing and attentive. Very personable. The food is outstanding. Drinks in the pub are great. The Bloody Mary's are artwork. You can sit outside and watch people go by. Rooms are clean and comfy.

We have been choosing County Clare as one of our go-to's for Milwaukee dining literally since it opened. While there have been days where some elements left something to be desired, which can happen to the best of us, the entire experience this past Saturday was just awful. We arrived at 5:45 which should be the height of a dinner... More

A wonderful menu and great wait staff. Friendly and comfortable. We were fortunate to have a table near the fireplace and it was lovely. The corned beef and cabbage was excellent and some of the best deserts we have ever had!

The Pub looked and felt like the Pubs in Ireland. Very friendly atmosphere. The food (large servings), very reasonable price. The drinks, very affordable. PROS: An adult atmosphere. Check their Schedule for Events. CONS: None.

Was here a year ago and gave this restaurant a perfect review. At that time I was very pleased with the vegan options and the knowledable staff. Today was my birthday, and boy did they have a birthday surprise for me. Though I was given a vegan/vegetarian menu, the waitress struggled to assist me in my choice. Almost anything I... More

We enjoyed a late breakfast/ early lunch here on a Saturday. Were delighted to walk in and sit down. I had the meat frittata and my husband had the Corned Beef Hash. Both were very good. I also had the bubble and squeak potatoes - very flavorful. Jenna was a great server. We will go back again.

The menu was just like the menus we saw in Ireland. We came on a Sunday afternoon. It wasn't busy, but the kitchen was incredibly slow. We were there with family, so it gave us plenty of time for visiting. But in our experience, don't come if you are in a rush. The food was absolutely delicious! From the Rueben... More

The restaurant food is uniformly very good--interesting takes on traditional irish pub foods and contemporary fare. The hotel rooms are comfortable and clean. However, it is the pub that is the heart of the place. Whether it is quiet or busy, you will find friendly and capable service, both behind the bar and in the restaurant. Their warmth extends to...
