COVID-19 Update

Here at the Alex Hotel, we always put the safety of our guests and team members first while ensuring you have a comfortable, memorable stay.

Since the onset of the pandemic, we have taken extra precautionary measures across the hotel and adjusted the way we work to ensure a safe environment for all. While The Alex has always operated to the highest degree of health and safety vigilance, our cleaning and hygiene protocols have intensified following additional guidelines set by the government and protocols issued by local and international authorities. 

We have implemented Fáilte Ireland’s Covid-19 Safety Charter, a Government initiative that guarantees the safest protocols are in place in the hotel to ensure safety during the pandemic. As part of this charter, all of our team members have received thorough COVID-related training to ensure the highest safety standards and procedures across all departments.

As we move forward, we have made some changes to the way we operate. Whilst we have tried to be as unobtrusive as possible, some of the guidelines will be highly visible throughout our hotel. Others will be combined into our service offerings, or even, in the case of our back-of-house changes, invisible to your eye, all to ensure that the new norms of safety and your peace of mind allow you to fully enjoy your stay with us.
