Let $\mathcal R$ be a finite set of integers satisfying appropriate local conditions. We show the existence of long clusters of primes $p$ in bounded length intervals with $p-b$ squarefree for all $b \in \mathcal R$. Moreover, we can enforce that the primes $p$ in our cluster satisfy any one of the following conditions: (1) $p$ lies in a short interval $[N, N+N^{{7}/{12}+\epsilon}]$, (2) $p$ belongs to a given inhomogeneous Beatty sequence, (3) with $c \in ({8}/{9},1)$ fixed, $p^c$ lies in a prescribed interval mod $1$ of length $p^{-1+c+\epsilon}$.

Keywords: Maynard–Tao method, primes with square-free translates, mixed exponential sums
