My two sons, 12 & 15, husband and I visited Dooley's Hotel for a weekend break. The reception we received on our arrival was extremely friendly and efficient, our room was comfortable and spotlessly clean and everything was in order. The food in the restaurant is delicious and beautifully cooked. The staff are friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable about tourist attractions in Waterford. Location is wonderful and we will definitely be returning.

a group of us paid our second visit to Dooleys to celebrate the New Year and we were not disappointed. The hotel has everything going for it. It is centrally located along the waterfront and is just around the corner from the shopping area. Dooley's has first class facilities and very friendly staff. The food was delicious and the New Year's Gala was fantastic. hot mulled wine and canapes to start the night, a five course meal and champagne to mark the new year. The Bottle Brothers provided a fantastic party night to mark the end of the old and the start of the new year.

Room Tip: A room on the upper floors is quieter.

stayed for two nights with my husband and we throroughly enjoyed it. Being frequent visitors to waterford we have stayed in most of the hotels in the area. This compares well with the other hotels . Rooms were comfy and warm.. had everything we needed even down to an ironing board. Bathroom had a ferocious shower and all you would need with soap and towels. Breakfast was a treat in itself, staff very friendly and nothing too much trouble. Ate in the bar on the second night and meal was very enjoyable. Will return again no doubt about it. Just a personal preference but we like the furnishings being older rather than modern and sleek.

A group of us headed to Waterford to ring in the new year and Dooley's Hotels did not let us down. From start to finish we were looked after. It really lives up to a true family hotel.
The food for our gala ball was fantastic and the house band The Bottle Brothers rang in the New Year in style.
I would defo recommend a stay at Dooley's and we can't wait to return ourselves.

Room Tip: all our rooms were of good quality.
