‘T&H Doolins is back baby’ – joy as iconic Waterford pub to reopen as outdoor venue

One of Waterford’s best-known pubs – the iconic T&H Doolins – is reopening as an outdoor venue, more than six years since it closed its doors.

Waterford councillor Eamon Quinlan shared this picture on social media over the weekend, which shows new outdoor seating outside the landmark George’s Street pub.

Cllr Quinlan (pictured below) said: “An outdoor T&H Doolans is back baby.”

It is understood the pub will only reopen as an outdoor bar service as work continues on the old building, which is a protected structure.

Many people took to social media over the weekend to express their delight that the historic hostelry is partially back in business.

One man said: “Lifts my heart to see this. Many happy memories of Doolans.”

Another commented: “Waterford city needs T&Hs.”
