The room was very comfortable, beds terrific. Bathroom modern and large. When the windows were closed the room was absolutely quiet. It isn't in a particularly appealing part of town but neither is it in a dangerous area. Good breakfast.

As Americans this was our first stay at Dooley's Hotel and we can't say enough good things about our stay. The staff was great and very welcoming. The room was well decorated and super clean. Restaurant food and staff was excellent. Yes, we will stay with Dooley again

It looks like there is a wide variation in rooms. We stayed with part of a tour group and although well organised and clean with excellent food the room access left us feeling like we were in a Skinner box. The bed was comfortable and large enough but the access in the corridor was constricted. Several small flights of stairs... More

We found this hotel last minute as we refused to stay in the Travelodge Waterford. Luckily they had a family room available. I am so glad we found Dooley's Hotel! It was a major contrast to what we had been staying in. It was clean, inviting, the staff were all so amazing, friendly and helpful. There is a pub/bar and... More

Dooleys Hotel, you can't get much more Irish than this. A family run hotel that makes for a wonderful experience, for any traveler . Although an older hotel it is nice and homely.The staff were genuinely keen to have us leaving, having had a memorable experience, well done.

Dooleys is central, and easy walking distance to shops and interesting tourist sites. We had dinner in the bar both nights, as the prices were good, and the food tasty. Room neat and clean, but no air con. When we opened our window, our room was above the exhaust from the kitchen, most unpleasant frying fish smell until about 11pm.... More
