“Fabulous lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Last Friday I attended a luncheon at Dooley's Hotel with a group of business colleagues. I have to say firstly the presentation of the food was really quite exceptional and flavours and quality excellent. Service as usual was terrific and staff very friendly. Often restaurants find it difficult to cater for large numbers,but Dooley's chef's and staff seem to sail through.
Great hotel, superb food and excellent staff. Worth a visit!

weather business or pleasure you would be wise not to pass Dooley's hotel as only you will miss out the most. We had a fantastic business lunch on Friday last as part of the Waterford Food Fest and the service that the staff provided was second to none, well done to all concerned from the Waterford Today team.

My mom and I stayed here while on Insight Vacation's Britain and Ireland Discovery 26-day tour. We stayed for only 1 night unfortunately. I would have loved to stay for a week. It was a marvelous hotel and the staff were wonderful. We had room 39. It was right on the waterfront, but was very quiet. The rooms were nice, clean and big. Had dinner and breakfast in the hotel...fish chowder was fabulous!

Good location. Right on the water front. Good service.
Room was clean and neat.
My two complaints are:
1. No air conditioning in my room at level 3;
2. Free wifi was available for one hour. This is very mean at this day and age. Once I logged on, my wife could not log on.
The hotel should move with the time.
Restaurant food was decent.

Just had the most delicious lunch in Dooley's celebrating the very best of local Waterford food - a lovely menu served by most attentive and efficient staff. Menu included Flanagan's grilled smoked mackerel , Country Style black pudding with Cashel Blue cheese accompanied by Ballybeg Greens produced in Waterford. Spectacular Bread and Butter pudding made with M & D famous blaas and finished off with Ponticelli coffee and Lily O'Brien chocolates. Already booking in for next year!

I recently visited Dooley's Hotel, Waterford for the Love Irish Food lunch as part of the Waterford Harvest Festival. The staff were friendly and welcoming and the food was fantastic! Would definitely recommend it for food.
