Best chipper

Unreal chipper! Amazing fish and veggie burger and their chips are the best around! Nothing like grabbing some food and enjoying the waves on the prom!

The best fish and chips in Waterford. The queues can be long at times but well worth the wait! We had a few things from the menu and they were all top notch .

Dooleys is a must when biting Tramore, for Waterford people it's almost tradition. Lovely chipper on the promenade inn Tramore.

You know a place is good when there is a queue outside from the minute the open until they close, everyday of the year. Traditional fish and chips at its best. Great weekly offers and very friendly staff.

The logic of "it must be good" if there is a queue does not apply..god knows why all these people were waiting to buy as we thought the food was awful. Greasy fish, average chips and scampi that looked and tasted like greasy fish bites. Seriously underwhelming! Don't be fooled by the queue.

Food was delicious and the staff were friendly. The fish bites were so yummy with the tarter sauce. Kids meal is reasonable and they even got colours :) rite next to the oxen and Amusement's making it a ideal location.

Finally decided to try Dooley's since we happened to be in the area when the line was short (very rare). Now we know why it is usually super long. Our large pieces of fish were perfect...super fresh, hot, and moist inside while crispy on the outside. The chips tasted like homemade and were also very fresh. We enjoyed two meals... More

Have just returned from a four day stay with friends and my husband at Dooleys hotel. An excellent hotel with very friendly welcoming staff who were very accommodating to all of us active retirees. The food was excellent aand everyone enjoyed their stay.
