Those people without frequent flyer status need to pay to gain entry an airport lounge if one is available. There is good news for those travelling out of Dublin as the airport is discounting lounge access for a limited time.

It’s not too often that you see a sale on this kind of thing, as usually the price is the price. Savvy travellers will want to ensure they get the most bang for their buck, so is this worth it?

Why Are They Discounting Lounge Access?

Up in the Northern Hemisphere, it’s the middle of winter and right now is a low period for travel. This is why the cheaper price is being offered, to entice people to make a purchase.

There are three lounges available at a lower price. The DAA Lounge in T2 has been reduced by 20% from €30.00 to €23.99. It’s counterpart in T1 sees a more modest 14% discount from €35.00 to €29.99 (valid for bookings 4am to 10am and 5pm to 7pm). Finally, the East Lounge sees a 17% reduction from €42.00 to €34.99 (for bookings 4am to 10am and 2pm to 6pm).

Are The Lounges Worth it?

I have to confess, I have not been to the DAA Lounge in T2, nor have I had the pleasure of The East Lounge. The former because it looks crappy from outside, and the latter because it only recently opened to paid access. I’ll be heading to The East Lounge in just over a week so keep an eye out for the review.

For the T1 lounge, you can see the lounge layout here, which I think is quite functional. They improved the food and drink offering and there are pictures of what kind of stuff is on offer right here. For €29.99, you’d probably get that value in the food and drinks, easily.

Overall Thoughts

You would want to have an hour or two free before your flight so you can relax and avail of all the goodies. If you have that, then I think these prices are pretty good and I wouldn’t expect these lounges to be offered any cheaper.

Do you know of any other airports which have been discounting lounge access? What do you think of the Dublin lounges? Thank you for reading and if you have any comments or questions, please leave them below.
