Travelling along the expressways is a means to miss all "are we almost there" syndrome. In Europe a lot is missed and depriving until arrival is at the destination abrogates the reason one went. Slow down and check out, which we did. We stopped here because some were feeling peckish. It was wonderful. The food was very well prepared and... More

I was able to order both a full lunch and a half portion for my husband. The food was... More

Carvery lunch at Dooley's is a must when I visit Ireland. The food is very high quality and the portions are very generous. The photos of the venue on this website does not do it justice. It is a lovely building in a rural landscape. There is a great choice of food and drink in a very comfortable bar and... More

7 of us visited Dooley's Restaurant last Friday night (14th Oct, 2016) for dinner with a friend we had visiting from the U.S. We were treated like royalty by the very friendly and helpful staff. Restaurant was busy but we were brought to our lovely quiet corner table (as I had asked for when I made the reservation) by Michael... More

Everything about Dooley's is inviting - plenty of parking, nice environment, good food and friendly staff but ooooh the wait! Have visited a number of times when travelling past and left on two previous occasions without food. This time we decided to wait, because we were very hungry and it was 9pm. We waited twenty minutes to place an order... More
