had a lovely, romantic valentines weekend at Dooleys Hotel. We enjoyed our stay, i`d say part of it was recently renovated to a high standard. It was a pity they didnt improve the water pressure in the bathroom, a person could have 40 winks while filling the bath, top marks otherwise

Just back from 2 night weekend break at Dooleys, this is maybe our third time here. Ate in the restaurant both nights, we couldn't manage the desert, brilliant food and excellent value into the bargain. Absolutely no problems with either the food quality, choice or the cheery service. Breakfast was equally good, again excellent service - well done to the... More

I regularly stay in Dooley's when on business in Waterford and have always found it to be warm and welcoming with excellent staff who go out of their way to help. Dooley's is in a central location with excellent facilities.

Stayed at Dooley's for 2 nights, rooms clean and well looked after, good breakfast both mornings. We also at had dinner both nights in the bar and the food was excellent and reasonably priced. A great hotel which i wouldn't hesitate to stay at along with my family again.
