I stayed with a group of five others on business. We had no heat or hot water in any of our rooms. The attitude of management was to come and check - obviously not believing us. We were offered the use of another room to shower but it was too late for some of us. No real apology offered other... More

We truly enjoyed our stay at Dooley's. The staff were friendly and helpful. We dined in the pub and liked the cosy, friendly atmosphere and conversations with other patrons. Great food! We stayed 3 nights with a day trip to the beaches of Tramore. The Thai Therapy spa at the hotel provided a welcome healing experience. We are so glad... More

The hotel is a little dated but clean and in a pretty good location. The staff was very helpful. The bar was lively. We ordered food up to our room and it wasn't bad for pub grub. The town is charming and the glass factory is interesting - both an easy walk. All in all a good value.

I recently attended an awards ceremony with 6 colleagues at Dooleys Hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The ballroom looked fabulous, the food was great and the service was outstanding. A great evening was had by all and we were all very well looked after by the guys at Dooleys. Thank you very much for a lovely evening!

The accommodation is good all the basics that you would need and you just ask if you need anything else. In our case my husband just out of hospital and we needed extra heat so a heater was provided. The food to me is generous portions local Irish food which was excellent and tasty. The staff are very helpful and... More
