Online Internet provider instructions incorrect when trying to login, amenities book stated a 4 Euro charge, also incorrect as its free. Instructions missing on phone and no mention in hotel amenities book on... More

I received an invitation from my retired Financial Adviser friend to Dine recently. He choose Dooleys Hotel Restaurant because as he said he had listened to my forty years of praise on Dooleys food. My first meal in 1973 was followed by hundreds of meals over the forty years and last week I again so very much enjoyed their delicious... More

This is a very friendly hotel, staff are lovely. Wednesday night has a traditional music session with some ballads and is very entertaining and not intrusive on your conversation. Food served in bar is excellent and reasonable; nice pint of Guinness also.

I attended the FAB Women Business Awards on the 17th May and had the delightful company of Tracey (Dooly's Hotel) and Sue, great conversation, great setting, the room looked so elegant and compliments to the chef.

This hotel filters through coach tour after coach tour. It certainly takes a beating and was evident that you were not trusted either!!!! The headboard was nailed to the wall. Stains on the carpets upstairs and down and unhelpful reception staff. You got one complimentary hour on the Internet and after that you had to pay. Staff were not clear... More

The rooms were very spacious and clean as were all the other area's of the hotel. All the staff were very friendly and... More
