With Trend Tours we stay here for two nights. Room is warm and the job it does. Food for the dinner and the staff are doing what they must. Without Trend Tours we would stay not here. Many pictures we like.

I can't say enough about this Hotel. The management and staff are amazing every single member are so nice. The rooms were spotless and warm. So reasonably priced too. We will definitely be back. For the price it just goes to show you you don't have to spend a fortune to have luxury. I wouldn't bother writing this if I...

The Hydro was what water is to life, essential for a quality life. Marcus was both professional and welcoming. Vanessa (Miss Venezuela) is a beautiful lady who greeted everyone at breakfast with warmth, respect and professionalism. Indeed, all of the staff worked well as a team to provide a friendly welcome. Thank you.

Years ago, I saw a movie about a matchmaking festival in Ireland, which led me to book a trip to Lisdoonvarna in September. I wasn't sure where to go so I reached out to Julie, Media person for the festival and she directed me to the Hydro Hotel. I'm so glad she did. I was there for six nights. The...

Where to begin...(1) The bar staff attempted to over-charge me 3 times on the same night - every staff charged a different price for the same drink [€4.30, €4.70, €5.10] and only for I coping it I'd be out of pocket - it might have been a ploy to see what they could get away with.

My friends and I stayed at the Hydro for two nights of the Matchmaking Festival, and had sooo much fun. The reception staff were friendly, helpful and always on hand.
