Excellent hotel near city centre and near quay

Stayed at Dooleys for 2 nights on the 17th February to 19th February 2018, reception staff very friendly and was happy to help you. Rooms very Clean and beds comfortable. Bar food was good had chowder and sandwich at lunch time of day in arrival, bar staff very friendly. The hotel is only across the road from Bus Station, and 5 min walk to center of city for shopping, eating and drinking. I will come back to this hotel in future and I also will recommend it to my friends.

very central. great value parking across the road.

Pros: location, cleanliness, updated fresh bedrooms, lovely breakfast
Cons: no
Location: very central to Waterford city and shops. Across from bus station. Beautiful restaurant The Granary around the corner and the greenway bike hire also
Even though we 3 friends arrived early and our triple single beds room wasn't ready we were offered a room with a double and a single to facilitate our early check in. However when we returned from town a few hours later the double bed was split and we had 3 single beds, which was our request. Very happy. lovely hotel. Spotless.

Nice hotel right on the waterfront

Good location. Good size room, decor was slightly dated but comfortable enough. Nice pub with really good menu attached to hotel plus a fancier restaurant. Plenty of parking across the road which was quite cheap for 24 hours.
