Our breakfast... More

Our CIE Tour put us up at the Dooley Hotel in Ireland. The hotel was comfortable and quiet. The restaurant food was very good (high marks especially for the Irish stew and cod fish and chips). The location was a couple of blocks from a main shopping area and close to several attractions. The only issue with the hotel was... More

Visited on Sept 15/14. Hotel was very clean, and room was available at noon. Parking is available across the street and you can get a token for 3 Euro's that allows you to park for 24 hours. The location was great and within walking distance to restaurants, pubs, museums and shopping. The buffet breakfast was great. Would stay again if... More

Stayed here on an overnight for a friends birthday. We had drinks and dinner in the bar, I would highly recommend the Seafood Chowder, but unfortunately they had run out of fresh soda bread! The rooms were a bit dated but clean. The lift is the slowest I've ever come across. I left a couple waiting for the lift, ran... More

We spent a few hours in Dooley's recently and had a meal and a few drinks with family whilst on a visit over to Ireland. I'd have to say that the service is not the best around as the waitress who dealt with us was a little bit brusque but ultimately we got served in the end and the meal... More

Dooley's is a wonderful, harming old hotel in Waterford. The rooms are adequate, clean and comfortable, The bathroom looks to be completely renovated. The only issue we had was a lack of air conditioning and noise coming from a club outside our window, I would recommend this hotel but avoid room 43 because of the outside noise and the need... More

The Dooley was adequate enough. The rooms were clean and large. The wifi worked well. There were adequate amenities in the room, coffee, tea, hair dryer and iron. The food was above average. The pub was excellent. They stayed open late for us one night without issue. We were made to feel like very welcome guests. The hotel is located... More

I feel very lucky to have been invited to the sold out Love Irish Lunch at Dooleys Hotel last Friday as part of Harvest 2014. And what a great lunch it was! The attention to detail and planning that went into this event was very evident from the moment I entered the hotel. The food was out of this world... More

The Love Irish Food Lunch held in Dooley's Hotel last Friday 12th as part of the Harvest Festival 2014 was really something special. From the warm welcome the minute we walked in the door to the comfortable dining setting and of course the exquisite food this was really something special. The staff were warm, welcoming and extremely professional. The dining... More
