Part of the reason I left Ireland was to get away from dismal dreary holes like this. Enough said!

This place is great if you’re an old Irish boy who likes to moan about the world and enjoy watching ‘Last of the Summer Wine’ on the plasma screen. The usual draught lager and Guinness that you will find in most Irish pubs is present along with the Celtic flags and blue air.

A bit soul destroying so I won’t be going back again.

Going in to this pub is like stepping back in time. What a depressing place

I enjoy a drind in a real pub not some flashy cheerless hole like the puzzle or red lion yes its rough and ready and the decor might not be up to scratch but the cheerful punters alwalys make you feel welcome you can have your drink and do your own thing if the fight breaks out its usually ignored and never comes to much probably just Dessie Potter bangin tables and grindin his teeth a nuisance I know but part of the fun we need someone to laugh at.

The Clare Inn is a small but friendly mad house full of great characters.First impressions might be a bit off putting but once you get used to it you will love it.Its a bit dirty and smelly but the crack is great.You will always be made welcome and the beer is good.

The place is filthy & so is the beer. The customers are moody old gobshites.

I once saw human faeces up the wall in the gents. I can confirm culprit was definitely drinking Guinness by the looks of it....

This pub is not closed. That doesn't mean you should go in there though - as stoichkov points out it's full of miserable old gits and a fight taking place is a fairly common occurrence.

A proper pub. Welcoming to new and old punters alike. Another community drinking hole closed by yuppies complaining that the noise of people sipping Guinness was ruining their dinner parties.

Perhaps they'll regret their incessant honking when the town is over-run by hordes of 18 year old kids looking for a place to urinate, fornicate or fight.

It may have been a little down at heel, but when I lost my wallet in there about twenty years ago (with about £50 in it) the manager called me the next day. Not only that but he refused point blank even to take a drink! It may not have been everyone's cup of tea or pint of the black stuff but I wiil miss it.

i wont mourn the passing of this pub, but its a nice hangout for miserable old gets. its not utterly without merit, but its pretty close.

Old school Acton Irish local. Which means Guinness, smoke and a man with a keyboard playing Elvis on Saturday nights. Gastro/Antipodean refurbishment being the order of the day in Acton this is one of a dying breed along with (at time of writing) the Windmill and the Six Bells. Who will mourn their passing...?
