Dublin Airport Lounge- Which would you recommend?



  • Registered Users Posts: 967 ✭✭✭pureza

    I'd go to pre clearance straight away to be honest

    If you're turned away,you're turned away,it's unlikely

    Bear in mind too,51st and green is a good long walk away from the gates down there depending on which one your flight uses,its at the furthest point away from where you enter the pre clearance zone past U.S immigration

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,928 ✭✭✭Ohmeha

    I suppose it depends on entry to pre-clearance would the gates scanning your boarding pass prevent from you from getting through there well in advance of the instructed time to arrive? I can see today for the three 12.15pm US flights all were called to go pre-clearance at 10:15am so if you got stuck for 30-60 minutes pre-clearing 51st & Green wouldn't be worth it

  • Registered Users Posts: 967 ✭✭✭pureza

    No issue going down to pre clearance earlier than that if its open in my experience

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,769 ✭✭✭youngblood

    Can you do preclearance and then go to 51st and green? or once your through preclearance is that it?

    They are doing this in Shannon as well. Calling u at 12 for pre clearance and the flight isnt until 2.

    Seems like a waste of time in SNN at the moment. Theres not much after u go through CBP there. Also its just EI flights to JFK/BOS so not much people

  • Registered Users Posts: 14,421 ✭✭✭✭cson

    It's because they want the flight boarded and ready to push 20-30 minutes before scheduled departure time.

    Personally I just post up at the coffee/bar kiosk post CBP in SNN and sip on a pint or two & board last.

    Little trickier timing it in DUB since your gate could be up to 15 minute walk away.

  • Registered Users Posts: 109 ✭✭LimaRomeo990

    That’s what we did. The cafe at Gate 8/108 is handy. To be fair good apron views for the spotters like me down at the gate area two 😅

    Will be in East lounge Thursday afternoon (2-4), does anyone know if they have hot food there at that time?

  • Registered Users Posts: 159 ✭✭KinnegadKid

    Will be in T1 lounge this Tuesday morning around 6am. First time to use one of the airport lounges. Hope there is brekkie on offer.

    I was there a few months ago a couple of hours later, there was no hot food, selection of pastries and maybe some sandwiches, we went for a breakfast in the Airport before hand it it was the right call for us.

  • Registered Users Posts: 967 ✭✭✭pureza

    There should have been a breakfast at that time 6am to 11am,in the area to the right of the reception as you come in,keep walking and its by the wall as you turn right the second time,maybe you turned left unaware of the section to the right?

    I've been in a few times as early as that this year and it consisted of a buffet of rashers,sausages,scrambled egg and hash browns on an all you could eat basis

    It's only untill around 11am though after which it changes to a stew or something similar

    The breakfast is one of the better offerings

  • Registered Users Posts: 159 ✭✭KinnegadKid

    Had a fairly decent hot buffet breakfast in 51st and Green yesterday too.

    Is the East Lounge okay to work from? Flying in a couple of weeks and will need to work an afternoon from the airport to avoid using up vacation time (7pm flight and don't want to stress of trying to get to the airport in peak time traffic straight after work). I used to work from the Aer Lingus Lounge when I had silver tier and that was fine. Tried working from the standard T1 lounge before and that was a disaster, loud music and kids running everywhere.

    It'll be more serene than the T1 DAA lounge with low level music and I'd work there yes

    Its going to be busy around the time the middle east pax get in

    Its pricey unless you're flying EY,QR or Emirates business class

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,682 ✭✭✭AngryLips

    Is there hot food served in the Aer Lingus lounge? Only ever used the DAA lounges.

  • Registered Users Posts: 967 ✭✭✭pureza

  • Registered Users Posts: 963 ✭✭✭Pete123456

    There was the last time I was there a couple of weeks ago. They've stepped it up a bit lately and have prepacked sandwiches and humous, little chickpea salads etc also that the other lounges have.

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,148 ✭✭✭goingnowhere

    Had a hot beef stew last time I was in the EI lounge in the afternoon

    I'll just leave this here in case its of any use to anyone,20% off

    That would be particularily usefull for anyone that hasn't been to the East lounge yet if it's included

    ”19% off The East Lounge between 15:00-19:00” apparently… better than nothing if the times work for you
