The Dooley's Hotel was a nice clean hotel that provided very good service. The only challenge we faced was the early morning disruption from the gathering delivery of kegs and the gathering of cleaning staff. Our room was unfortunately at the end of a hallway next to the cleaning room and overlooking the delivery area for the pub. It was... More

This is easily my favourite hotel in Waterford. The staff are great and location directly opposite the bus station is brillant. I have stayed here with my mother a good few times and is very wheelchair friendly. Always enjoyed any meal we have had here.

I stayed in Dooley's hotel recently and found our stay to be very pleasant. The hotel is a little tired in places but its quite charming as well. The staff are so friendly and you are within walking distance to everything in Waterford. Didn't have the best night sleep as the pillows were very hard and quite uncomfortable. Would stay... More

Where to start...room had a small double bed and a separate twin bed. No Air conditioning. Very noisy (easily hear noise outside), no in-room safe, lousy service. Décor was old and worn-out looking and the bathrooms on the main floor were NOT kept well at all! Only good thing I can say about it is that the rooms were clean... More

Room was clean though a little small by US standards. In room WiFi was terrible, basically was only available near bathroom. WiFi was very good in the restaurant and the pub. I found out on checking out that I was entitled to free parking based on Corporate rate - the person who checked me in (on a Corporate Card) failed... More

Two night stay during our tour of Ireland. If you get a choice ask for rooms in the newest part of the hotel as the room we stayed in (109) you could hear every step that the guests the the room above took - the floors creaked, also the hallways. Otherwise the stay was good with friendly staff, good food.

Hotel is right on The Quay; easy walk to the Waterford Crystal Showcase & to the shops, restaurants in the city. It also is close to a Bus Stop, buses that will take you all the way to London! (Talked to a few passengers waiting). One can also take a walk up & down the street & enjoy the view... More
