The hotel is right on the quays, with large car parks opposite. The staff are friendly and the room was clean and comfortable, with everything we needed.

Right in downtown this is a family run, quiet hotel with very nice staff. Comfortable room, very good food in their restaurant. Stayed as part of a CIE tour, but it's great for independent booking, too. Construction on the sidewalk in front was no problem, no noise.

nice room, excellent location. We loved Waterford and walked everywhere from hotel. There was so much to see and do, we only stayed 2 days but could have stayed 3 or 4. The hotel had some construction out front but we never heard a peep! Parking was right across the street, definately a bonus!

Excellent Thai therapy in this hotel. Reasonable rates and very professional.definitely worth the money to de-stress. Very clean and private area where therapy is carried out. Nice treat after a busy shopping day or before a big night on the town. Therapist is well Qualified and caters for all ages .

@ Coletteotoole83 I would like to thank you for your comments and feedback regarding your recent stay at Dooley’s Hotel, Waterford. It is apparent that we failed to provide you with superior, personal service you both expect and deserve from our hotel. The shortcomings you encountered were certainly not representative of the standards of service on which we pride ourselves.... More
