Not enough light in the room and the lights they had were not bright. I understand the hotel is old and maybe there's no money to refurbish, but how much money are better light bulbs? The room was a turn-off. The bottoms of the beds were enclosed with fake leather (I think) which had big holes and was peeling off....

After a day at the Waterford factory, we checked in to the Dooley. Our guide told us it had a few quirky things. The first was the room numbering. The rooms are consecutively numbered, with no relation to the floor they are on. We had room 18 which was on the second floor. While this is printed in the key...

This was my first time in IRELAND. My wife and I had a great time in Waterford. The staff at Dooley's was very helpful in answering our questions. The room was very nice. We also enjoyed the breakfast. One night we went into the bar and we really enjoyed the live music. Our stay at Dooley's was very enjoyable.

Stayed at `Dooley's recently for a school reunion - old ex-pupils of the wonderful Newtown School in Waterford - and thoroughly enjoyed being in such a comfortable and pleasant hotel. Staff were lovely, meal was excellent and the room could not be faulted - so a great night was had by us all! Many thanks, Rosheen.

I was at a function of about 140 in Dooleys. The service was of a very high standard. The manager was on hand throughout the evening checking on each table. It was an enjoyable meal, in particular the medley of desserts. Many thanks.

As always, lunch was amazing. Staff were so professional at all times. It can be Difficult to serve hot food when waiting for speeches etc at a lunch like this launching an event but the waiting staff managed to achieve this.

A perfect location on the waterfront although sadly my room view was at the back of the hotel. The hotel was very good staff were very friendly and the rooms very clean. Both breakfast and evening meals were good. Parking is not a problem all be it on the other side over the road. I would certainly stay here again
