The team at The Bell Hotel

Situated in the heart of Clare, the Bell Hotel dates back to before the Tudor era, when in 1580 a small aleshouse was converted to become The Green Dragon. Since then, the building was held a posthouse, a chandlery and even a cattle market.

The ancient building still retains its atmosphere and long history, though it has been refurbished and updated to offer modern comforts, with function rooms,
wif-fi and Sky TV in all rooms.

The Bell Hotel is family and dog friendly. Our resident bear, Fred Ted, is on hand to entertain, and we keep a ready supply of dog biscuits behind the bar.
