“Great Stay”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Stayed @ Dooley's for two nights on a 10 day tour of Ireland. Loved the atmosphere of this family run hotel. Staff was attentive and very friendly. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. The location was great for visiting all the sights in Waterford and a nice location near the water. Would definitely stay on our return to this gorgeous country.

great place to stay if you want to go shopping, tramore is close if you want to go to the beach, there is loads of places to eat in waterford. but dooleys have their own restaurant if you would like to stay close to the hotel for something to eat. they have brilliant food on their menu.

We were reluctant to stay at Dooley's due to some adverse reviews on Tripadvisor. We were bicycle touring Ireland. We opted take a chance and stay at Dooley's due to the hotel's city-center location and too tired to continue on. I'm glad we did. I disagree with the adverse comments. The hotel is very nice. I would not hesitate to stay there again. Good place. The hotel evidently does accommodate bus-tour-groups, so the breakfast can be can be a large gathering with lots of chatter. The breakfast was good and plentiful.

Easy parking. Lovely front desk staff. Big room and bath. Good food at the pub. Good location. Nice to have view of the river but parking lot and some construction made it less attractive. Walked to crystal factory- not super close but other points of interest on the way.

I stayed at this hotel while on a bus tour with my mother. The hotel was well situated in central Waterford and within walking distance to many shops ad the Crystal Factory. Rooms were clean and large, outdated but for the most part they were fine. The pub downstairs was great, amazing singer who got the whole crowd going. Food in the restaurant was very good. Nice selection and preparation was very professional. No complaints.

A lovely hotel warm and friendly welcome on arrival , food first class a varied menu excellent for all rooms large suitable for all entertainment on Thursday in season so always a good nights sleep regardless of room allocated.
Even though 4 coaches were in food was served quickly and hot I will certainly be stopping again and recommend to anyone looking for a hotel in Waterford parking available across the road a minute away

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter but lovely view over the river for front rooms
