I stayed here 1 night. Everything was comfortable. The best part was the convenient location. There are probably better hotels in Waterford, but if you're not going to be spending much time in the room, it will be just fine.

Comfortable, clean, convenient to everything, awesome food, great staff and a terrific history! Staff was very helpful in suggesting "off the beaten path" places around city and transportation options. Do not miss their breakfast! In my two weeks of traveling in Ireland the Dooley put out the freshest and the best breakfast!

We went to see Faulty Towers The Dining Experience on Friday 11th April and it was one of our most enjoyable nights out in a very long time. We laughed until we cried!! The show was so, so funny and brilliantly done and the meal itself was excellent. Although Manuel's service was poor, the Dooley's team more than compensated for... More

We were here only for one night, but really enjoyed ourselves at this location! The room was well furnished and comfortable, with all of the amenities that you would expect. I was travelling with a group and the manager on duty caught up with most of us in the lounge area before dinner to inquire if all was well with... More

Stayed for 1 night which wasn't enough. Our room was great and had everything we needed. Didn't pay for breakfast with room as we're not early risers, bar serves breakfast later, costs much the same. Only let down is the charge for wifi, most hotels give free service, tv in room could be better also. Other than that, great hotel.
