One of my favourite things to do after a long-haul flight is to have a shower in an airport lounge. Whether this is in a specific arrivals lounge or elsewhere, it makes a person feel human again.

Aer Lingus have an arrivals lounge in Dublin Airport called the Revival Lounge, which is relatively unknown. Considering the benefits this space offers, it’s surprising that more people aren’t aware of it.

Access to the Revival Lounge

Unlike many airline lounges, access to the Aer Lingus Revival lounge is solely for passengers travelling in business class. On Aer Lingus, this means it is for transatlantic arriving passengers only.

The single paragraph on the Irish airline’s website confirms this – “Our Revival Lounge in Dublin invites transatlantic Business Class customers to refresh on arrival.”

What’s Inside This Arrivals Lounge?

Designed for a pit stop before heading on your way, this arrivals lounge has seating, food, drinks and showers. The philosophy here seems to lean on the fact people will not want to dwell for a long period of time after a flight.

There is a seating area where you can relax and enjoy a coffee and pastry before or after a shower. There are other drinks available to rehydrate after a long flight as well.

The main event in the Revival Lounge is, of course, the shower suite. Featuring Voya products (which are found in the main Aer Lingus lounge in Terminal 2), the rooms have everything you need to freshen up.

Those heading straight off to work can have their clothes pressed as well. All you need to do is put your items on the hanger and while you shower they will be worked on and returned so you’re spic and span to begin the day.

Overall Thoughts

The Aer Lingus Revival Lounge is located in the baggage hall of Terminal 2 at Dublin Airport. When you arrive at the carousels, keep walking straight ahead and you’ll find the door in the wall on your right.

Since you will need to wait for your baggage to be delivered anyway, it makes sense to spend the time having a shower in the arrivals lounge instead. That’s what I would be doing anyway, rather than standing around like a lemon waiting for my bags with the masses!
