Is located in the heart of Georgian Dublin and within a two-minute walk of the Alex Hotel. Merrion Square is a cultural oasis which allows guests to fully immerse themselves in historical Dublin while only being a short stroll away from the iconic shopping centres and stores of Grafton Street. Appreciate the sights the city has to offer and then unwind in one of the most picturesque parks of the Irish capital before you retreat back to the comfort of your hotel room.


Grafton Street

Grafton Street is Ireland’s premiere shopping street offering visitors the best of high street fashion and designer outlets. The street offers the best of Irish shops, such as the iconic department store, Brown Thomas, that stocks international favourites including Hugo Boss, Chanel, Calvin Klein, Ted Baker, Rituals and many more. Everyday favourites such as Life Style Sports, Tommy Hilfiger and many more are also located on Grafton Street. Why not take a break from shopping and stop by the iconic Bewley’s Café on Grafton Street for a tea or coffee? Connecting Stephen’s Green to the historic main entrance of Trinity College Dublin, Grafton Street is steeped in the culture and history of Dublin. The Alex is located within a ten-minute walk of Grafton Street, making the hotel the perfect place to stay after a long day of shopping!

Trinity College Dublin

Dublin is the home to Ireland’s oldest and most prestigious university, Trinity College.

Steeped in history with many of its buildings dating back to the 18th Century, Trinity also houses the historic Book of Kells, which is one of Ireland’s greatest cultural treasures – an absolute must-see during any tourist visit to Dublin. Visitors can explore the cobblestoned grounds of the college themselves or take a paid tour, which includes a visit to the college’s historic Old Library and entry to view the Book of Kells. After you soak up all of Trinity’s history and culture, take a short-distanced walk back to the Alex to relax for the evening and reminisce on your day.

Temple Bar

Temple Bar is the most iconic and well-known neighbourhood for Dublin’s nightlife. Also known as “Dublin’s Cultural Corner”, it is enriched with Irish culture and gives a realistic and excellent insight into what the nightlife is like here in Ireland. Grab a bite to eat and enjoy a drink while listening to live music in the Temple Bar pub or take a walk around and relish everything the Temple Bar area has to offer including the talented busker singers or the bold and creative street artwork surrounding the area. After a long day exploring Dublin’s Cultural Corner, relax and recharge in the comfort of your room at the Alex.

St. Stephens Green

St. Stephens Green is one of Dublin’s most breath-taking Victorian public parks. The park is embedded in nature and is filled with colourful flowers, various trees and is the home to many species of birds and animals too. We recommend having a picnic and feeding the ducks at the park as a fun day out, if the weather allows of course! We are fortunate at the Alex that the park is only a short walk away from front door and our guests can admire the parks natural beauty without having to venture on a long journey.

O’Connell Street

O’Connell Street is in the heart of Dublin City Centre and one of the widest streets in Europe! The O’Connell Street area is vibrant, lively and is the hustle and bustle of Dublin City. There is something to do for everyone and anyone in the O’Connell Street district – have a meal, grab a drink, go shopping, visit the historical monuments or go see the cultural site, the Spire. After a busy day roaming around the City, why not take a short stroll back, unwind and relax in the luxury and comfort of your room at the Alex?

Dublin’s Main Concert and Sports Venues

After a long day or night standing on your feet singing, dancing or chanting for your favourite sports team, the only thing you want to do is to jump into bed! Luckily, the Alex has the most convenient and ideal location and is in close proximity to all major concert and sports venues in Dublin – 3 Arena, the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre, Aviva Stadium, RDS Main Arena, Croke Park and many others. What better way to end a perfect occasion by mellowing out and having an amazing sleep on an Irish made, luxurious King Koil Mattress? (Which all of our bedrooms have by the way).
