Clare Rural District was a rural district in the historic county of Suffolk and the administrative county of West Suffolk, England. It was created in 1894. On 1 April 1935 it was enlarged by the addition of the parishes of Lidgate and Ousden from the disbanded Moulton Rural District, Cavendish and Hawkedon from the Melford Rural District and Depden from the Thingoe Rural District. It was named after and administered from the town of Clare.

Since 1 April 1974 it has formed part of the Borough or District of St. Edmundsbury. East and West Suffolk ceased to exist as of 1 April 1974 and Suffolk is now the administrative county as it was before 1888.
