Dooleys hotel in Waterford is a great place for a business event or a romantic dinner out. The staff were very personal and followed up with the guests throughout the meal. They provided a super menu but food was served a bit too warm.The bar at hotel is also large which is great for a big function.

Good location, easy to find. The public parking opposite can be hard to find a space in. Check-in/check-out was friendly and efficient. Nice clean room - the hotel is a rambling old building so getting to and from your room can be a navigation challenge. Good wifi. Had dinner in the bar (standard pub fare) and it was fine, although...

We found this to be a great hotel for the money. It is quite reasonable and the location is excellent. It is almost directly across the river from the train station. You exit the station, cross the bridge and go left about 100 yards or so. And it is directly across the street from the bus terminal where you can...

Dooley's is on the waterfront opposite the bus station. Our room looked on to an inner courtyard, but was quiet (apart from music from the bar). The room was large with a double and a single bed, six firm pillows on the beds and one in the wardrobe..The beds had duvets, but top sheets were available. There were extra blankets...

We stayed at several hotels and B&Bs during our 3 weeks in Ireland. This was the best hotel and had the best breakfast of all the places we stayed. We had a quiet room that looked over the river. Nice

“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.”
