Dooley’s Hotel and local retailers collaborate to offer great value Autumn deals in Waterford

Dooleys Hotel voucher initiativeDooley’s Hotel, a family-owned independent hotel, has recently launched an initiative to encourage visitor spend in the local retail outlets in Waterford City.

The offer is for mid-week bookings where guests can avail of a 10% discount from a large selection of independent stores in the city. Tina Darrer, co-owner of Dooley’s Hotel explained that the premise of the Book, Stay, Shop & Safe voucher was to combine a city stay with a broad, good value retail experience.

“Dooley’s Hotel has partnered with twenty five local retailers to give visitors to Waterford a value experience by availing of a discount on their purchases in these stores. Our guests simply have to present their key card in any of the participating stores to avail of 10% off their purchase price.”

“Obviously the events of the last few months have had a detrimental effect on most facets of business. The summer months saw lots of people holidaying at home, many for the first time and enjoying all the city and county has to offer. So, we wanted to continue that momentum into the autumn and offer a package for guests that would give them the opportunity to explore Waterford and also avail of great retail discounts in selected independent stores.”

“When we first broached the idea with local business owners, they all were enthusiastic about the initiative. In fact, it was their enthusiasm that made us realise that there is a fantastic resilient spirit in Waterford among small businesses, which is so heartening to see.”

Some of the participating businesses include T-R-M, Harlow Fine Jewellery, The Ice Cream Place, Jenny Shoo, Bebhinn, Alfie Hale Sports, Finders Keepers, Foxy Chopper, MC’s Outdoor Store, The Hanger and The Vintage Factory.

Lisa Fitzgerald of The Ice Cream Place was one of the first businesses to come on board. “As a new business, we feel it is important to collaborate with and support local business where and when we can, so we were delighted to get involved when Tina approached us with the idea. It’s a really simple concept and one that gives visitors a reward and who can refuse a discount?”

“The local business community is working hard to offer a wide-ranging value experience to shoppers, so if visitors to Waterford book and stay they will be able to get that little bit extra for their euro.”

The voucher applies to participating businesses and is valid for guests availing of a mid- week break in Dooley’s Hotel until the end of October.
