The Alex Hotel Dublin, one of Ireland’s leading 4-star luxurious boutique hotels, has been certified with the prestigious Green Key for the second year. The Alex Hotel, located in the heart of Dublin’s city centre is the only hotel in Ireland to hold this certificate of commitment to sustainable business practice. Green Key is a leading standard of excellence within the tourism industry and is subject to rigorous ongoing standards and criteria.

The Alex Hotel is part of the O’Callaghan Collection which includes a group of five high-end 4-star boutique hotels in Dublin and Gibraltar city centres.

Torsten Obermann, Group General Manager at the O’Callaghan Collection, shared his view on how the Green Key certification reflects the Alex Hotel’s commitment toward a more sustainable future:

“At O’Callaghan Collection, we understand that the hotel industry has a significant impact on the environment. With the vision to work towards carbon neutrality and fully sustainable practices across our entire hotel footprint, we are committed to playing our part in managing our business in the most environmentally friendly way possible. We work hard to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle, by providing our employees with relevant training to achieve this with the products and services we procure. We work hand in hand with our suppliers to ensure we reduce our impact on the environment in a positive way.”

Over the last years, the Alex Hotel has implemented several sustainable practices and actions to reduce its environmental impact such as:

  • Across the hotel collection, 100% recyclable materials are chosen.
  • Energy efficient air conditioning (a/c), which is an alternative to a central heating water, as well as sensor-controlled lighting and heating systems have been implemented.
  • All bathrooms are stocked with locally sourced and sustainable toiletries.
  • All O’Callaghan Collection hotels are cashless and QR codes are being phased in to replace paper.
  • Food and coffee are locally sourced and fairtrade.

Moreover, Torsten added:

“The Alex Hotel is delighted to be the only Green Key certified hotel in Ireland for a second year running. This award is a testament to the dedication and passionate efforts the team at The Alex, including our suppliers, have made towards a more sustainable future.”
