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. They (especially Bridget) made us feel like returning again next year (and possibly every year after!). Yes, if you are looking for an ultra modern, city style hotel with shine and glitz, this is not for you, but then you are not in London, Paris or NY! Part of the charm is it`s slightly dated, homely décor, but it is still spotlessly clean and has all necessary amenities. As stated in a previous review, the glass door to the bathroom is slightly surprising, but it does have a net curtain on. I`m not sure if ALL the rooms have this, so it might be worth asking if it freaks you out. Maybe something for the hotel to consider? Otherwise the room was cosy and warm with a double and single bed.Breakfast service was prompt and efficient and there was a fair (although not extensive) choice of full Irish, porridge, cereals and fruit. The bar area is large, yet still welcoming and there is a lovely dance floor where the excellent musicians kept us entertained. It is very busy during the festival, so do not go at this time if you`re looking for P&Q. The only reason I cannot give 5 stars is because we did not sample the dinner menu and in the bar at night, there was a 2 euro charge for a glass of tap water which seemed to be taking advantage.
