We had the misfortune to eat in Dooly's Hotel Bar yesterday...Two of us ate because we were passing through and having travelled for over 4 hrs needed 'fodder'....best way to describe the food... but our daughter refused to eat in the place. We considered leaving after sitting down but stayed because we did not know where else to eat in Birr. Perhaps after this review somebody will advise us!
An old building is no excuse for the drab grubby looking surroundings and the rather 'cocky' waitress...She served a cup of tea but as the milk jug on the table was empty we requested some milk. There was a handle on the jug but she chose to cover the top of the jug with her hand rather than use the handle.
The Ladies Toilets left a lot to be desired with cobwebs etc & paper on the floor...Try comparing with the spotless Toilets in another old building Cooney's Hotel & Bar in Ballymahon where we sometimes break our journey.
I am writing this to perhaps spare somebody else from our experience as most definitely we will never set foot in Dooly's again.....Ugh!
