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

Really enjoyed the Love Irish Food lunch at Dooley's. As always, the staff were excellent - friendly, helpful and efficient. The food was superb, the hotel looked great and the atmosphere was wonderful. All in all, a very enjoyable experience. I could not recommend Dooley's highly enough.

I attended the Love Irish Lunch as part of the Waterford Harvest Festival 2014. Congratulations to Dooley's on the event. The food was fantastic from start to finish, beautifully presented, and amazing tastes throughout each of the courses. It was clear to see that a lot of thought had gone into the menu and effort had gone into each dish.... More
