Dooleys Hotel Waterford City, Waterford
Surprisingly quiet
This surprisingly affordable little hotel was a treat to be in. Well maintained older building, with plenty of space in the room. Comfy beds and everything was spotless. We were in extension, which meant a few stairs to climb, which was OK with us, but if you have problems, make sure you ask for a room in original building. The pub and restaurant were both excellent and bar staff very helpful and friendly.

ups and downs
The hotel was clean but it appears aged and dated. Their internet service was terrible, and when we spoke to the manager about it he said he would put in a call to their support and hear back in 24 hrs. Even in the lobby it would drop. The beef stew tasted from a can but the prawns were quite good. Breakfast was warm and plentiful but the coffee and tea were poor. The elevator was slow and we walked the stairs 90 % of the time. Good security features with entry cards needed to get into the elevator and stairwells.
