A Car Trip Stopover at Alexander


The Alexander is one of Dublin’s best hotels and has gained renown for its clever mixing of traditional Irish hospitality and contemporary European elegance. It is located besides Merrion Square, close to the popular sights of the city. The place is just a five minute walk from Dublin’s museums and galleries as well as with the city’s famous Grafton Street. The Alexander is quite relatively a recent hotel, but it was built sympathetically to the prestigious Georgian surroundings of Merrion Square, where you’ll find Ireland’s government buildings. The Alexander is a friendly and very hospitable hotel it offers a comfortable feeling as well as elegance throughout its big lobby area that is set with cosy sofas and the stylish modern surroundings of the hotel’s cocktail bar; ‘Winners’ and its restaurant; Carravaggio’s. Every single one of the Alexander’s guest rooms are big and well appointed. They are all tastefully furnished and come with all the necessary modern facilities – including individual climate control, wireless internet access and spacious beds. The hotel’s restaurant, the Carravaggio, offers an impeccable blend of traditional fare and more contemporary dishes that reflect the stylish surroundings of the hotel. The restaurant has a relaxed fine dining atmosphere where you can feast on some of its signature dishes like steamed fresh mussels layered with pasta sheets in a light curry broth and frisee salad or Chargrilled marinated fillet of beef with Clonakilty pudding, sautéed beans, porcini mushroom and shallot jus. Some of the Alexander’s facilities include a small gym and free car parking. Residents can also avail themselves of the facilities of three sister hotels nearby and bill back to their room at the Alexander. The Alexander can be a great choice for a rest stop in your car travel in Ireland using a rented car.
