Might be interesting for some of you, handy little trick for getting cheap lounge access at Dublin T1 and T2 and Cork (Plus around 800 lounges around the world)

Register with Red by Dufry
https://sso.dufry.com/register

After you have registered, you will first get the silver status, which brings at least 5% discount in all Dufry shops. If you now go to your profile in the app which app? and scroll down a bit, you can simply enter HAPPYBIRTHDAY2020 under "Promotion code". After updating, the platinum status should then be displayed in the app.

With this status you get a 10% discount in duty free if you get one from Dufry. On the other hand, you should have received an email at the same time with access data for DragonPass (Dragonpass is a PriorityPass alternative) make sure you save it somewhere.

Download the Dragonpass App, use the details in the e-mail to register.

Note: If the e-mail with the access data for the DragonPass does not come automatically as with us, you have to go to "Airport advantages" in the app and then "Lounge access". To do this, you must have selected an airport as the home airport that also has a lounge (e.g. Dublin). Then you will be forwarded to the application. At this point, the app sometimes hangs, just try it several times.

After that you should have Dragonpass access free for 1 year, meaning you can buy access to a lounge for 10 USD (8.99) you cannot bring a guest though so they would need to perform the same procedure to get access for 10 USD.

Use Revolut/N26 for extra currency savings

Happy lounging
Thanks for this, will come in useful if I can get the instructions worked out!

Which app are you referring to at the beginning? Do I need this app or can I just sign up at the link you provided?
Do I need to download both Dragonpass and a Dufry app? Is that "app called "Dufry Red" ?

That should be it then. Hope it works
Thank you very much for posting but my phone is different and I can't seem to get the settings right (Samsung Galaxy S7) ... Hopefully someone else has figured it out that has a similar phone

Actually there's a UK phone number and an email address in the contract section so presumably you can use these to refund your passes instead of the Taiwan number.

Had anyone ever used this card successfully. Reviews saying that people were not allowed access to lounges.

In my experience that's just to stop people going mental and lashing back 10 beers before the flight, it's not really enforced.

When I click 'I Want It' in the red app, and submit, I get 'Your Request Cannot be Processed' and an oops message.

Anyone else get this or know how to get around it?

Edit: Sorted, I just kept trying.

Hello from Dublin Airport Business Lounge. No problems to get it. DragonPass was accepted. No questions asked.
Once again thank you OP for great find.

Anyone chanced getting young kids in on the parents card? 20 for me and the mrs but would cost 40 for all of us, not sure if it would be worth that.

Kids under 2 are free, over that they need a pass.

Yup, 6 and 3.

The fact that I cant use my passes and need to register them separately on a different device is turning me off too.

Pity they don't do that in the airport bars before people get on a flight.
