This was our second Hotel on our Ireland trip with C.I.E. tours. It is in Waterford (yes where the Waterford Crystal is- or was made) It is an older hotel, but kept up nicely. Our room was on the second floor in room #32. We were slightly disappointed as our window looked over the roof of the kitchen with the...

Found the rooms a bit cramped. Well maintained otherwise. TV and WiFi. Breakfast was also average. Location is outstanding. Thus overall no regrets. Bath tub and basic saop in terms of toiletries. The rooms are in no particular order so ask.

We stayed in this hotel as part of our CIE Tour of Ireland. The beds were comfy, bath very nice but the best part of this hotel was the dinner we had in their restaurant. It was amazing, beautifully presented and delicious. We would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is a nightmare... They have some kind of fan at the back side of the hotel (facing O'Connell Street) and when it gets on it's so loud that you couldn't imagine it... It was on until 23:30h and got on again at 7:00... Lady at the reception was helpful and got manager for us but he said that...

We stayed at Dooleys during night 6 of our Ireland tour. Good location - within a short walk to the downtown area . We liked our room - very comfortable, clean and quiet. Also ate dinner and breakfast here and thought the food was very good.

I loved this hotel! It was very sleek, modern, extremely clean. I really enjoyed the shower and waterfront view. The statues on the waterfront are beautiful and something to enjoy taking pictures. We stayed here while we toured the Waterford Factory. It was extremely interesting.

Beautiful hotel right on the waterfront and close to everything. Great staff., They were very helpful with gluten free food options. Rooms and beds were large and nicely decorated.Parking is across the street and you need to pay but not very much.

Loved Dooleys, nice hotel in a great location to walk Waterford. It's also directly across the street from where the busses stop so it was easy to catch the bus back to Dublin. They have a restaurant and a bar which is where we chose to eat and drink. Great staff there, we'd definitely return here. Rooms were nice, quiet...

We stayed for two nights over the long weekend. Got the train and was only about a 5min walk from Plunkett station. Room was nice, two large beds. Bit outdated but was comfortable and had everything we needed. Had breakfast in the bar was okay could have been nicer. Dinner in the Ship restaurant was lovely, 3 courses for €20....

“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.
