3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Amenities
Dooleys is in a good location in Waterford. Walkable to the train station and all the historical attractions. Paid the extra at booking to include breakfast and it was worth it. The food was good with plenty of options for picky eaters and the service in the morning was great. Disappointed in the room - we were on floor 2 and had no Wi-Fi at all. We told the front desk staff immediately after checking in and they said they’d fix it but they never did. We had to use the Wi-Fi in the lobby the whole stay which was frustrating for planning our days. The room itself was ok - spacious enough but it felt tired and outdated. Water pressure in the shower wasn’t very good.

The hotel is walking distance to everything the town has to offer including the mall and shopping area, Waterford Crystal, the Viking Triangle plus is right across the street from the bus station and just down the street from the Waterford train station. The staff was very nice and helpful.
