The Dublin Airport Executive Lounge offers scorching-fast wi-fi and barista-made coffee. It’s well worth a visit before your flight from Terminal 1.
After checking in for my Ethiopian Airlines flight from Dublin to Los Angeles, I proceeded through security. Just past the security checkpoint (to the left) is the entrance to the lounge. Take the stairs or lift upstairs to the entrance.
You’ll be checked in by a smiling staff member. Turn right for the buffet and a smaller seating area. I arrived in the lounge at 5:00am, meaning breakfast was on offer. It included cereal, bread, whole fruits, scones, muffins, and granola with yogurt.
Newspapers and magazines were also available, as well as a seating area intended for work. Internet was extremely fast: over 100mbps down!
Turn left from the entrance for the main seating area and bar/coffee barista.
I really enjoyed the coffee in this lounge. The cappuccino was well-made and a warm scone with yogurt, coffee and the Daily Mail constituted a great start to my day.
Restrooms are located directly outside the lounge. No shower facilities are available.
The Dublin Airport Executive Lounge is well worth a short stay before your flight if you are looking for a great cup of coffee or light breakfast. Hours of operation are from 4:45a to 9:00p daily. This is also a Priority Pass lounge, so you need not even be traveling in business class to access it.
