Beautiful and clean room (completely recommend the small price for the upgrade to a suite) with a lovely big comfortable bed. But the best part of this hotel is the friendliness of ALL the staff, we have never felt so welcomed and relaxed in a hotel, we have visited a variety of places on our travels but truly the staff...

Overall the efficient friendly staff couldn't do much more . It is refreshing to see this ethos of willingness back again . This is a traditional town centre old coachouse that has recently refurbished all their rooms . But while rooms are boutique in style , friendly staff , this little gem offers exceptional food . The coachouse bar has... More

We stayed at Dooleys the night before a wedding. After a long drive we arrived tired and cold at around 10pm. On arrival there was loud music blaring as there was a teenage disco in full swing. We were told not to worry as it would be over at 11pm sharp. We went to our room which was notably cold... More

Dooly's in my opinion needs a personality change. To be charged a figure higher than the one stated on the tarrif is one thing, to have the day guy state "I don't know anyting about that" is another when he prepared my bill. In addition to be told that breakfast was from 0800-1000 on arrival and then find out that... More

An ideal place for a party atmosphere as it seems to never stop! Excellent staff, food, bar and service. Rooms excellent, can't fault it at all. Reception very helpful as I organised a team building event here last weekend. Has to be one of the best helpful places we have stayed (booking 12 rooms). A tad noisy as next to... More

I only stayed one night at Dooley's Hotel, but wished it had been much longer. Everyone there was welcoming and friendly, my room was spacious, spotlessly clean and looked as though it had been recently refurbished, and on top of this the food was superb. As always, it's the people that make the most impact and I found both staff... More

I visited to Dooly's Hotel last Sunday for lunch, after a hurling match, good way to work up an appetite!. I had lunch in the bar, it was tasty, and the service was excellent, fast and friendly. I noticed a different menu in the bar, and the coffee shop, curious about that. A good day in the pleasant town of... More

Very reasonable priced hotel with very friendly and accomodating staff and management. Location of the hotel is excellent - in central Birr. We dined in the Emmet Resturant and the food was high standard.

I stayed 1 night in Doolys in July 2015. The only negative I could give it is, the rooms are very basic (but clean), the twin room has single beds but for the price you pay for B&B it was great value for me. If you're only looking for a room to sleep, this hotel meets that need. The positives... More
