Spent three nights here for St Patricks day. First visit to Ireland. Lovely friendly people. The hotel staff worked hard and were very friendly and helpful nothing was to much trouble they even waited on when we sat to watch the rugby.

Went there for a two-day conference over the last weekend in February. Standard of service was overall high, staff friendly and helpful, and the first price has to go to the chefs in the hotel kitchen, who prepared excellent meals (at decent prices) on both days.

We stayed in Dooley's Hotel in Waterford in November 2016. The room was dirty and rundown. On the second night we couldn't sleep at all due to insanely loud live music coming from the bar. The only good thing about this place was the totally overworked lady from the reception. She was really helpful and extremely welcoming.

Checked in late from a tiring day. Hotel is in a nice central area of town. Was a bit disappointed that had to ask where my room or when breakfast was served on check in. Anyway, room was a little dated but clean and spacious. My real gripe was with breakfast. I have never had worse service or waited so...
