Reviewed 10 July 2013

Two of us stayed at Dooleys this week on an overnight stop in Waterford. Friendly staff, good food and a central location. Good value and worth a visit. Bedrooms are a nice size and were comfortable and quiet. Bathrooms looking a little tired, but overall you won't go far wrong here.

As stated in the in-house blurb, the hotel has been proudly run by the one family for many years. It also has that feel and welcoming. My room was large with double bed. It was comfortable and quiet and overlooked a rear street. There was one potential hazard as it overlooked the local pool room and a noisy "chopper" bike persisted for a while but moved on.
There seems to be only one lift and during my stay had some problems, as a consequence many guests were forced to use the stairs, even up to the 3rd floor.
The room had tea/coffee facilities, iron/board but no safe. Free wi-fi was available and useful.
The breakfast/dining room was very well run with efficient and friendly staff.

As part of a coach tour of the UK and Ireland, we two Brits and 33 Australians decended onto this hotel on the 19th June '13. According to the porter there are 114 rooms but we only found one lift. Our room, 28 was on the second floor and situated overlooking the street to the rear. We had a double and single bed in the room. The shower was fitted over the bath and anon slip bath mat was provided. There is only liquid soap provided but there was also a face cloth provided to aid application. A lot of hotels provide nothing. The room was clean and well decorated but there is some attention required to the little details ie, the four pillows on the double bed were all different: one white, one cream, one off white and one pink. The bath itself is due for a refurbishment and the television was an old analogue one which only provided a fuzzy picture. The tea and coffee making materials are on a tray in a cupboard under the televsion with the kettle wired into this position, a lot of bending required to make a 'cuppa'. Our dinner was of three courses with three choices on each, was well cooked, well presented and plentiful. Breakfast was buffet style and plentiful with coffee and toast placed on the tables of but tea had to be requested seperately. Over all a pleasant experiance.

This was our first trip to Ireland and we stayed at Dooley's Hotel and were warmly welcomed and treated wonderfully! It was clean and all the linens smelled beautiful! The breakfast at the restaurant was great and the dinner at the bar was fantastic! It is within easy walking distance of the attractions in Waterford City and right across the street from the River Suir! We had a great stay!
