The location of this hotel is excellent. We made an overnight stop with Bensons Travel en route to Killarney. Very clean and comfortable on the waterfront and right on the city centre. Great evening meal and breakfast.

I rarely stay in hotels, but this one is nice. For a Texas girl, it was hot, but once management provided a fan, I was comfortable. The meals in the restaurant are good, but expensive. I found the service to be very slow- took almost 2 hours to have our evening meal. Drink refills are almost non- existent, but the... More

Stayed here for a night as part of a touring holiday. We had a good welcome after arriving late and had dinner quite quickly. A nice choice of food and the staff were very efficient serving us. The bedroom was large with T&C, iron and board everything nice and clean. Good lighting in with plenty of mirrors and a trouser... More

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
