... to get a feel for the old city. The narrow streets were filled with street markets and pubs, shops and restaurants, making the city feel vibrant and alive. We got back on the road and headed out to see a bit of the countryside, driving past St. Patrick's cathedral on our way out of the city. We stopped at Johnnie Fox's Pub (est. in 1798) for a pub lunch (we skipped the Guinness - too early in the day!). By the time we got there, the sun had come out ...

... tuna and John Dory , leek and potato soup, and Irish smoked salmon. It was a truly wonderful meal. For our last! Several times in the night I checked my pulse and it was still beating. Tom cooked us the breakfast on the morning and after quite some time we managed to take our leave. No plans so we headed up the coast road back to Dublin. First stop Wicklow info centre gave a few options, some involving castles and ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews O'Callaghan Alexander Hotel Dublin

    Very Nice and Good Location

    from

    I have stayed at this hotel on two occaisions in the past few months and found it to be very comfortable and in an excellent location. Althought if you are looking to right in the middle of the action of Temple Bar this is not the place for you. It is about a fifteen minute walk away from the main tourist area and closer to Trinity College. It is also less expensive than many other comparable hotels in the Merrion Square area of Dublin. Although breakfast is often not included in the rate if you look on line you can find the same rates with breakfast. I would reccomend this hotel and will stay here again the next time that I am in Dublin.

    Great location, quiet hotel

    from

    We're just back from a weekend her that we booked through expedia. The hotel is very central to Grafton Street and although our deal didn't include breakfast there are a couple of good cafes on the way to the town (Cafe Crepe and also one next door to it both do good cheap breakfasts). The hotel is right next to a bar called the Ginger Man, so it's a good place to stop off on your way back from an evening in the town.

    Great Hotel for Marathon Runners

    from

    Four of us stayed at the Alexander when we travelled to Dublin for the Marathon in October. We were thrilled with the place. Fantastic location - especially for the marathon (Close to start and finish). The best thing about the Alexander is the staff - the concierge, Brian, is incredibly friendly and helpful. The reception staff, especially Ion, are also terrific. And the bartenders at Winners Bar in the hotel - Seamus, Sean, Conner, Finnula - here's to you! Lovely people, lovely place. For marathon finishers, the atmosphere was magical, the staff didn't mind that we were staggering around in barefeet in the wee hours. They were also really accomodating about early breakfasts etc the day of the marathon.

    Great Location

    from

    Stayed there Oct. 28-30, 2004

    Pros: Majority of attractions are within walking distance (however, Kilmainham Gaol is quite a distance)

    If driving, the staff will park and retrieve your car

    Breakfast (not complimentary) offers fruits and breads in addition to a full Irish breakfast

    Room was clean, quiet, and comfortable

    Lift access

    Cons: A tad difficult to find as it is located down a oneway road. If driving, you must circle the block.

    This is a great hotel when visiting Dublin, I would stay here again.

    Very nice

    from

    stayed here on a business trip and thought it was a very good value - a very nice hotel, in an excellent location, that costs significantly less than some of the others nearby. Highly recommended.

    Very nice city hotel

    from

    We had a suite with 2 bedroom to accomodate our family of 5 and it was all very nice. Great bathrooms, good service. Breakfast buffet was a little pricey at 20 euro per preson.

    Lovely Place

    from

    Stayed here over Memorial Day weekend, May 2004. Just a great hotel. Hotels are so pricy in Dublin and this place was reasonable and a good enough distance away from the madness of Temple Bar. But only a 5 minute walk away! It's also in lovely Merrion Square, 2 blocks away from the shops of Merrion Sq. and 5 minutes from trendy Temple Bar. Couldn't have been better. Service is FABULOUS! The front desk has no attitude - and they are friendly and sincere. No European snootiness here! We didn't eat at the hotel restaurant, but the rooms are clean and basic. The hotel itself is gorgeous and welcoming. I would stay here again in a minute if I ever return to Dublin. I highly recommend it for its price and location.

    Excellent yeon!!

    from

    Excellent -Staff were excellent -rooms were excellent - food was excellent - definitley wont be back!!

    Perfect for our weekend break

    from

    Stayed here on a romantic weekend break for 150 (for 2 nights and 2 people altogether). We checked in early (9.30am) and it wasn't a problem, the staff were lovely and the room was pleasant and clean. The hotel was quiet but we didn't eat in so I couldn't comment on the food.

    All in all, fantastic value for money and we would certainly recommend it and stay there again.

    Good base if you enjoy a few minutes walk or like taxi's

    from

    Located at back of Trinity College it is a 5-10min walk to the absolute city centre, but closer to main shops Merrion Park and some of the more upmarket night life.

    I was transferrered to this Hotel as my original was double booked but the extra *ratings more than made up for the walk.

    The late night porter is excellent if a drink in the early hours is your thing after all the clubs have shut down. Breakfast is good quality but lacks any atmosphere. Rooms are spacious enough, well equipped, but could be anywhere in the world. Bar and reception area is large and comfy.

    In summary, and pretty good base to stay at but you need to get out and about if you want to feel like your in Ireland.
