had a nice few days in dooleys hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We only stayed here for one night in between traveling around Ireland. Our room was small and not very comfortable. Regardless, the staff was very helpful and the location of the hotel was right on the water and in the middle of town.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location, no soundproofing"
hotel is a little "tired", needs a good face-lift (cosmetic like carpets, paint etc.) My room faced the river (very nice) but also overlooked the road. I could clearly hear the traffic, so much it woke me at 6 am. Double glazed windows but either worn out or badly fitted so a very noisy room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Staff could'nt have been nicer!"
At first I was not pleased w/my room. It was to be non-smoking & was'nt. I was about to leave to find some place else, when the front desk manager asked if he could show me more rooms to chose from. He was able to find me a quiet, warm, and comfortable room. I'm glad I stayed!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Date with my wife"
It was great. They gave us the honeymoon suite which was big and lovely. Parking was additional and across the street but we got a small discount on the price. 3 euros vs. 5 euros. Close to city center and a lot of sights.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location, tired, noisy and uncomfortable roo"
Stayed here June 2 2014. The location was fantastic with parking directly across the street from the hotel (€3). The hotel has a nice 30's-40's vibe to it. Staff was pleasant. Unfortunately that's where the fun ended, in the hallway. Our room had no air conditioning and our small window opened to the roof and directly to the ventilation system. It was […] extremely noisy and could not tolerate to have the window open for any length of time. The room had no safe, important to us. The best were very soft and uncomfortable. The bathroom was very tired. The hairdryer was held together with masking tape. The garbage can lid was broken and this shower had the absolute worst showerhead on the face of the planet. It was so weak and misty. Thankfully the full hot breakfast was included. There was a good assortment of food, and lots of it. Thankfully. It's a good location to visit the town from. Everything is within a 10min walk. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Very helpful and pleasant staff. This hotel is highly recommended for your stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is a fine mix of modern convenience and old world charm. It is family run and has that feel. I have no complaints, the dinner was delicious, the service was courteous. I wouldn't pass it on any future trip to Waterford.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Easy to find and got parked just across the road."
Really enjoyed our stay. It was only one night but the room was great we had a double and two single beds for the children. Better than most hotels as we usually get a double and a pull out bed for the kids to share which doesn't work very well. The breakfast was excellent and the staff really helpful. Had a meal in the bar which was also great.Genuine Expedia guest review
My friend and I stayed overnight in Dooleys and thoroughly enjoyed it. We found the staff friendly and eager to please, both over the phone and in person. We ate bar-food and it was reasonably priced and tasty. the waitress was chatty and efficient. The twin room was comfortable, clean, had tea/coffee facilities and was peaceful. All in all a pleasant […] stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Dooleys no longer on the good list!!!"
I booked an overnight stay with my daughter and a friend and her child for a Christmas treat, after a trip to "Mount Juliet" which was amazing. My general opinion of the hotel is very poor, the "welcome" at reception was severely lacking and staff seemed at best dis- interested.The"family" room was tiny , with not three beds as advertised but two beds […] and a camp bed which had seen better days. Three out of four sockets I tried to use to charge phones etc. were not working , the tv remote also broken and the shower was the worst I have ever encountered in a hotel, the drizzle of water made actually washing yourself an impossibility. Very disappointing. I would have relayed this opinion to the hotel staff if they had made any enquiry as to my stay on checking out. Will not be returning. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Would stay againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We finished our Ireland holiday in Waterford and after staying in a variety of hostels, B&B's and private rentals decided to stay in a conventional hotel. We found Dooley's to be a nice average hotel. The room was large, bathroom was clean and the location in the hotel very quiet even though the main hotel faced a busy street. The breakfast was spectacular […] and provided a great start to the day. Also the parking was right across the street and was very inexpensive. The biggest downside were unhelpful staff that treated us as though were were interrupting them/bothering them when we had questions. Also, the internet access was locked down and was doled out with 1 hour free passes and expensive per-device, all-day access. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Disappointed in Waterford"
I am sure, at one time, it was a very nice hotel. However, it has been let go. Our room was in disrepair from the carpet coming loose that tripped me on the way out of the bathroom to the mold noticeably growing on the wall above the shower. Our towels were so worn they actually had strings hanging on the bottom. The sheets were also in poor condition. […] They would have been used as rags in our home. I wasn't expecting it to be anything fancy, but I was hoping it would be clean and in good . Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Was there only one night. It was quite convenient to everything. Great Food and a great staff. A good place to stay for a short trip. Food in Hotel was typical Irish, but very good. The staff who waited on us did a great job. The desert was fantastic!
"Comfortable stay and good food"
09/29/14 boo2U Bowie, Maryland
We came with our tour group, it was a nice hotel, the room was clean and I loved the curtains, very regal...the bathroom looked like it could use an update but it was adequate and clean. the beds were comfortable and when we went down for dinner, it was very good and the service was good as well. Our breakfast the next morning was handled very well and the food was wonderful, however, by this time, the typical "Irish Breakfast" was a bit much for me, since we had had it every day... I was happy to see there was oatmeal and toast available. I would come back, its close to shops and in a good area... a very nice stay. - check out the beautiful Waterford chandelier as you enter.

"Good Hotel in Waterford"
09/26/14 SanDiegan79 San Diego, CA
Our CIE Tour put us up at the Dooley Hotel in Ireland. The hotel was comfortable and quiet. The restaurant food was very good (high marks especially for the Irish stew and cod fish and chips). The location was a couple of blocks from a main shopping area and close to several attractions. The only issue with the hotel was the elevator. It was inadequate to handle a tour group all arriving at the same time so many of us opted to take the stairs. The elevator was also slow. Overall, though, I was very pleased with the hotel.
"A Pleasant Stay!"
09/23/14 Darlene021962 Goulds, Canada
Visited on Sept 15/14. Hotel was very clean, and room was available at noon. Parking is available across the street and you can get a token for 3 Euro's that allows you to park for 24 hours. The location was great and within walking distance to restaurants, pubs, museums and shopping. The buffet breakfast was great. Would stay again if in area.

Stayed here on an overnight for a friends birthday. We had drinks and dinner in the bar, I would highly recommend the Seafood Chowder, but unfortunately they had run out of fresh soda bread! The rooms were a bit dated but clean. The lift is the slowest I've ever come across. I left a couple waiting for the lift, ran up 2 flights of stairs to my room, retrieved my purse and went back down the stairs to find the (youngish) couple still waiting for the lift! Will go back again though!
"A pleasant enough bar"
09/21/14 lavabubble Barnsley
We spent a few hours in Dooley's recently and had a meal and a few drinks with family whilst on a visit over to Ireland. I'd have to say that the service is not the best around as the waitress who dealt with us was a little bit brusque but ultimately we got served in the end and the meal that we had was very nice indeed and again, much like most of the meals we had whilst in Ireland, felt a lot less processed than the ones we get over here. We had from the specials menu which was good value and very tasty. I would certainly visit again but it would be unwise for anyone to expect too much in terms of atmosphere. That said, if the food is hot and tasty and the surroundings clean and tidy then it's got the beating of a lot of other places.
"Charming old hotel with amazing service."
09/19/14 Kiddyhawk1 Stratford, Canada
Dooley's is a wonderful, harming old hotel in Waterford. The rooms are adequate, clean and comfortable, The bathroom looks to be completely renovated. The only issue we had was a lack of air conditioning and noise coming from a club outside our window, I would recommend this hotel but avoid room 43 because of the outside noise and the need to sleep with the window open due to the lack of air conditioning.
"Nice place to stay"
09/17/14 GardnerTravelGirl Gardner
The Dooley was adequate enough. The rooms were clean and large. The wifi worked well. There were adequate amenities in the room, coffee, tea, hair dryer and iron. The food was above average. The pub was excellent. They stayed open late for us one night without issue. We were made to feel like very welcome guests. The hotel is located within walking distance of shops, pubs and museums. It was more than I expected. I was presently surprised.
"Love Irish Lunch @ Dooleys Hotel"
09/16/14 Clair M
I feel very lucky to have been invited to the sold out Love Irish Lunch at Dooleys Hotel last Friday as part of Harvest 2014. And what a great lunch it was! The attention to detail and planning that went into this event was very evident from the moment I entered the hotel. The food was out of this world with a great selection of local produce presented beautifully. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the hotel looked great. I can't wait for next years event but will be heading to Dooleys again before then!
