“Great”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

Stayed with a tour recently and loved it, excellent location.

Truly on the doorstep to what is on offer,Good breakfast and very helpful staff. The traditional irish feel was exactly what id have hoped for when I came to ireland. Great guiness :-)

Eat there one night and never again. Ordered a burger and honestly have never seen anything dripping in as much grease as this was. Didnt eat even half of it and the waiter who cleared it didnt ask did I enjoy, was it ok during the meal or when he was clearing. The only reason its not getting terrible review is that when I was paying the lady asked me was everything ok and I said not really due to it dripping in grease. In fairness she did not charge me but id never go in there again. Was ill thinking about it

Dear Hotelier1975

Please accept my sincerest apologies for the lack of service you received during your visit. It is apparent that we failed to provide you with superior, personal service you both expect and deserve from out hotel. The shortcomings you encountered were certainly not representative of the standards of service on which we pride ourselves. Rest assured your feedback has been shared with our staff. I would appreciate it if you could contact me directly to discuss your experience further in order to take the appropriate corrective actions, in hopes of eliminating the possibility of a future recurrence.

Again on behalf of the hotel staff, I apologise for the lapse in service and for any negative perception it may have left. I do take your comments seriously and hope that you will contact me so that I can fully investigate your complaint.

Kind regards

Michael Collins

Fantastic hotel in this beautiful town. Shame we had to move on, would have liked to stay longer. The staff were very friendly and the rooms clean and plenty of space. Car park opposite to pay for but only 3 euro a stay/day if you get a token from reception.

Everyone we encountered, from the front desk to the bar we simply wonderful. Rooms were spacious and clean. No air conditioning but the windows open nicely and let in a beautiful breeze. I would recommend staying here, dining in the restaurant and having a nite cap at the bar with the locals.

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.
