Stopped here for one lunch day. The staff was very friendly and nice, even if the service was a bit slow. My chicken wings and chips, we're very yummy and I was overall happy with my choice to dine here!

One night stay at Dooley's. Great location along the Quay. Walking distance to many locations. Room comfortable (one glitch.....no water pressure in the morning). This downgraded to a four. Breakfast was great, supper was great and the in house pub was fine.

Dooley's was a great place to stay. The staff went out of their way to help with any requests. Our room was clean and tidy. The hotel is in a great location with parking available across the road in the public car park. Waterford is a great place full of history.

My view of this hotel is a little tarnished by the fact that there is bugger all to do in Waterford....which I realized after check-in. That said: the hotel was on the waterfront, the staff were friendly, the room was up to scratch and the bar area was nice enough.

A very friendly hotel excellently situated on the quays in Waterford. Honestly couldn't fault a single thing as we found all amenities up to high standard and all staff members we encountered were so helpful with whatever our queries. We travel to Waterford a couple of times a year as a group and this was the first time that we...

Buffet lunch available in the bar. Both of us had roast beef, there was plenty on the plate and it looked appealing. When we went to cut the meat it was tough (chewy) the veg were tasteless. the potatoes was the only thing on the plate with flavor. The chef kept disappearing from behind the counter so we could not...

“Nice spot, two double beds in our room. Beds more on the firm side. You can use the stairs or the elevator - which is a bit tiny.”
  • Two double beds, a bit firm. Older hotel, but clean and neat.
