        • Couple
          7.0

          location in a nice area and easy to find. rooms and hotel in general were clean and quiet for a restful nights sleep.

          The showers were the worst we have come across and not acceptible. not enough power to wash shampoo out of your hair. Service in the bar was at times slack we were sat waiting, wondering if anyone was going to serve us.

        • Group of friends
          9.2

          Clean and well decorated rooms, the Staff were very pleasant and helpful; the evening meal early bird menu was excellent. This is a very nice Hotel situated on the front main street overlooking the river with Public parking opposite the hotel. We stopped only the one night but the Bar entertainment was typical Irish music. Would stop again.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          My girlfriend + I enjoyed our stay in Dooley's Hotel. The food were very good and drinks were good. The staff were very helpful + friendly. The price are excellent.

        • Family with children
          7.8

          Very comfortable rooms and pleasant staff and excellent location on the quayside to experience the Tall Ships while providing quyick access to local shopping and pleasant walks around the city.

          Other than the room rate (recognising we needed two rooms), there was nothing in isolation that caused a concern.

        • Family with children
          10.0

          We were pleasantly surprised. We expected a 3 star hotel... It was the only hotel available to us because of the Tall Ships...However everything was much better than we expected. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly, especially the lady at reception. (She was also very efficient and professional.

        • Family with children
          7.8

          The food in the Dooley's restaurant was very good. We ate there twice - the first for snacks and we probably tried every starter. All were quite good. We went back for dinner for fish and chips and that was good too.

          Our room was a non-smoking room but the hallway had a really strong stench of smoke. The room was fine.
