Stayed at Dooleys Hotel for 2 nights during a winter break in Ireland. It was our first stop as we came by car from London. Its about an hour and half drive from Rosslare so it was an ideal place to stop. Dooleys is a nice city centre hotel, a little bit old but the rooms are very clean and the beds very comfy.
Breakfast was nice, there was a good selection of hot and cold food and the staff i must say were very helpful even the foreign staff which there are alot of all over Ireland.
All in all Dooleys Hotel was a good start to our break and we found the rates to be very good too.

Avoid this hotel, they charge for everything, internet and parking, the rooms are crap and so is the food. There are better hotels in town, try The Grenville one hundred times better. Trust me I have stayed in a lot of hotels.

We stayed in Dooleys Hotel in September and recieved the worst customer service i have ever encountered. My fiance and i were staying here with a hotel points voucher for a weekend stay €98 a night and one evening meal. We were so disgusted with the way we were treated that we checked out on Saturday and didnt stay the full weekend.
We were highly embaressed when having our meal as thay did not understand the dinner voucher and kept coming over to us while having our meal and asking us if we were staying in the hotel. We were treated like 2 people 'off the street' looking for a free meal.
I asked for a room with a view and got a tiny room overlooking a roof with very loud fans going all night. The food was not up to scratch either.
When we were checking out the manager Michael Collins was so ignorent and didnt offer us any incentive to stay.
I sent a letter of complaint to the owner Margaret Darrer and she did nothing for me only an appolgie which i felt was not good enough.
Maybe i was just one of the unlucky ones in this hotel as i seems to get good reviews but i definatly wont be staying here again!!!!

Stayed: September 2008

We stayed here while attending a wedding. The hotel is located on the main road right beside the river and is within walking distance of anywhere in the city. The staff in reception were friendl enough and we got checked in without any problems.
We were in a smoking room (which was brilliant as they are rare these days) and the room was a decent size.
It would be fair to say that the room was quite dated but I actually liked it. The breakfast which is included in the room price was good i.e. plenty of variety and tasted good too!
I would have no hesitation recommending this hotel, but if anyone is lookin for a modern hotel this is not for you.

We stayed in this hotel as part of a tour. I had read mixed reports so went straight up to check the allocated room. Was well appointed and clean . We had a room on the front and the road is extremely noisy. There is no air conditioning but I could not have slept with the window open. There is a crossing immediaately outside too and on the main route, it seems, for emergency vehicles.

Very helpful and friendly staff. Quiet lounge area near reception.
They have an Irish Show one night each week. we did not go but others enjoyed it. Didn't try the food but people said OK. hard to find somewhere local to eat though. We ended up somewher just because we needed a meal.
Hotel was fine and overlooked the river estuary.

Suggest people specify a quiet room required.
