I was on a CIE Tour of Ireland and Dooley's was the worst hotel on the 15 day tour. All of the other hotels were wonderful. Dooley's is charming and has character, but it is very outdated. The rooms have no air conditioner or fans and the duvet is very heavy. We had trouble sleeping because the room was sooo hot, yet it was only 50 F outside. The breakfast wasn't bad. Overall it wasn't terrible, just don't stay there during the summer. you could definately find better.
