Conrad Dublin & Alex Restaurant

Situated directly opposite the National Concert Hall and just a stroll away from St Stephen's Green, this fine city centre Dublin hotels celebrated its twentieth anniversary in 2005 with the completion of a €15 million refurbishment programme which saw the entire hotel renovated and upgraded.


This is an extremely comfortable place to stay - friendly staff are well-trained and helpful, and many of the pleasantly contemporary guestrooms enjoy views of the piazza below and across the city; nice touches include providing an umbrella in each room - and also a laminated jogging map of the area with one- and three-mile routes outlined.


The Conrad has particular appeal for business guests, as all of the bedrooms also double as an efficient office, with ergonomic workstation, broadband, dataports, international powerpoints and at least three direct dial telephones with voice-mail - and the hotel also has extensive state-of-the-art conference and meeting facilities, a fitness centre and underground parking.


Public areas include a raised lounge, which makes an ideal meeting place, and the popular Alfie's Bar & Grill, which is home to locals and visitors alike and opens on to a sheltered terrace.

Alex:


The bright, spacious, split level restaurant offers a smart, modern dining experience, with vibrant décor and elegant comfortable furnishings set off by Elizabeth Cope paintings and low music. Impeccably professional staff are quick to show diners to tables smartly set with a white linen, stylish cutlery and gleaming glassware.


This Dublin restaurants well presented menu offers tempting contemporary dishes with an emphasis on seafood (some of which may be imported), although the fish dishes are balanced by at least an equal number of attractive meat, poultry and vegetarian choices.


Cooking is generally reliable and classic sole on the bone is a speciality that is always enjoyable if you are on a generous budget, while others such as 10oz Irish rib eye are also treated pleasingly simply, making for uncomplicated dishes that allow the natural flavours of the ingredients to take centre stage.


A well chosen wine list reflects the restaurant’s demand for quality, and includes a special monthly wine selection which focuses on a particular country.


Even though sometimes lacking in atmosphere, Alex makes up for this with excellent service and a good all round dining experience.
