Booked a room on venere.com, and found a great rate for this hotel. Rooms were clean, beds comfortable, and the dining experience wonderful at their restaurant. Nice pub atmosphere, perhaps due the Euro football championship game on the television. Great value for the money.

We had an overnight stay after travelling from the South Coast to Fishguard-Rosslaire, a 12 hour journey. We were welcomed warmly, luggage was quickly porteraged to our rooms and dinner was ready within 1/2 an hour. The Hotel was very comfortable and rooms were lovely, everything was done for our comfort and convenience. I would recommend Dooleys toeveryone.

Called into bar for a drink. Decor is old. Barman Ronan was under pressure but handled this well. He had a nice way with him and was friendly. It was the actual bar itself was just ok. Only stayed for one drink. Not much atmosphere.

Stayed here with my mum who needed wheelchair friendly room and shower. They rang before hand to check everything was right. From the moment we arrived they helped with suitcases. Meals in the bar and restaurant were good quality and a very good array of foods for breakfast. Great to watch the soccer in a friendly atmosphere and good music... More

We did not have a reservation and it was a busy Saturday evening, but the Restaurant Manager managed to sort a table for four of us, which was very appreciated. The food was typical pub food but was very nice and was reasonable value for money. Although we did not stay long, only for dinner, we enjoyed it

The lobby area was small and reception was across the front door. The bar was to the left of the lobby and there was live music at 8:30. There was a conference room down the hallway and a large dining room to the right of reception. Our room was nice, with a queen size bed as well as a twin,... More

We got a quiet room which was comfortable. The food was good plain fare, with fresh fish but why does every hotel in Ireland have a different idea of what irish stew is??? The breakfast typical of those we received in Irish Hotels. The service was friendly.

Stayed here for two nights as part of a Shearings tour. The hotel is situated on the waterfront but it is not a particually wonderful view, in fact it is quite messy. However it is reasonably central and blends in with the surroundings. Our room was spacious and comfortable, however they don't provide a safe, which I find annoying in... More

Dooley's was a nice place in the heart of Waterford. Clean spacious rooms and bathroom. Only complaint was our room overlooked the patio to the bar below and with the windows open we smelled the cigarette smoke from those stepping outside. They serve a nice breakfast buffet that I would recommend purchasing as part of your stay package.
