“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

I always stay at Dooley's when I am in Waterford and it has consistently maintained a extremely high standard from the welcome on arrival, comfort of the rooms, amenities throughout the hotel and now free Wi-Fi. I had drinks in the bar, dinner in the restaurant and breakfast at the hotel. In all cases the service and food were excellent. The hotel is family run and it is great to stay somewhere that gives such individual care and attention.

Stayed February 2013, traveled on business

Hi Guys my review is with my business cap as I am away on business at the moment. Dooleys Hotel on the quays in Waterford is a great stopover. The car park is directly accross from the hotel. A short walk you are in the heart of the city. Check in is hassle free. The rooms are spotless clean and you have FREE WI FI. As some of you are very aware not all hotels provide this.The food in the bar or the restaurant in excellant. I dined in the bar a great choice on the menu including the chefs specials. As i stayed there on pancake Tuesday yes I had pancakes and by god they were good. At lunchtime they do the combo soup and sandwich great value. A very good breakfast with the porrige ready for serving. The staff in all departments are very helpfull and friendly. Next time you go to Waterford try this hotel.

Having come from a hotel from hell in Tramore we booked into Dooleys.. The girl on the front reception was lovely. Couldn't have been more helpful and polite.( If hotel management read this you have a gem there). The hotel itself was lovely. We have stayed in many 4 star hotels that dont rate to this one. Great bar staff and service. Most of all we had breakfast in bed Sunday morning and may i say it one the best room service breakfasts we received ever.. Well done to all the staff...

Stayed here recently on a girls weekend away. The staff were pleasant and the room was comfortable. The food in the hotel was fantastic! Breakfast was one of the best iv had and we had dinner in the bar which was also good. Location is perfect for shopping or a night out

This hotel is like a Good Wine it improves with age. I have dined here for nearly forty years of the family run hotels seventy years in business. You will be pleased with what you will find at Dooleys. Quality fare is served all day from its famous and delicious Breakfast to its evening dinner and musical entertainment. Being family run is reflected in its staff. Make a note to visit Dooleys a household name in Waterford.

Have stayed here too many times to count, always reliable, very nice clean rooms, great food, friendly staff and a great location. Can be very reasonable, we got a room online at the last minute for a Saturday night for €59!

Room Tip: Car park directly across from hotel will be discounted at reception
