Great value for a clean modern hotel in waterford. Staff was great, rooms very clean and comfortable. We were only here for one night on a tour around Ireland, parking was right across the street but reasonable, and restaurant attached to the hotel was reasonable and good Irish fair.

The hotel has in principle everything what is needed, but everything is a bit worn out. This is true for the room as well as for the rest of the hotel. The staff at the reception desk is not well listening to the clients. The dinner is good and delivers good value for money.

Excellent service. Allowed us to change rooms to be near to our elderly relative- with no fuss whatsoever. Thank you Olaith. Exellent breakfast. The chowder on the bar menu is EPIC! Would definately return. The staff are exemplary. Really helpful and so courteous. Excellent car parking deal. 3 Euro for 24 hrs! Amazing. Missing it already. Would recommend a visit... More

We spent just one night at Dooley's, but it met our needs, Instead of a double bed and a single, there were three singles with two pushed together. For us old people that was not a problem. I liked the pillows provided. Too many hotels use super plump pillows, but this one was nice and thin, just my style. The... More

Does what it says on the tin. Ideally located and very comfortable rooms. A bit dated but it all adds to the charm. Breakfast was delightful! Located on the waterfront. Town is only 5 minutes away. Beautiful place too see ... a good experience of the Irish charm

A good 3-star property that has been around for a long time and is still family owned. NIce food at reasonable prices in both the bar/restaurant as well as the main dining room. Parking is across the road in public car park but you can get frree tokens from Reception as far as I can recall.

Overall a great experience. Hotel was convenient with parking in front. The room was small, yet comfortable and clean. Furnishings were a little dated but couldn't argue with the price. Family-owned. The sister was filling in for the weekend. What a pleasure she was. Huge personality which helped make it such a great experience. Had the Irish breakfast the both... More

The room was decent, dated, clean, beds squeaky but reasonably comfy, the shower was horrible (no pressure, narrow tub), the staff was friendly, the food in the pub was good. The lift is slow and can be crowded, especially when the tour buses arrive. Rooms on the back side of the hotel are super noisy due to late night pub... More
