On Friday I posted about the new US Pre-Clearance Lounge which would be opening today in Dublin. The lounge is called 51st & Green, and is located past the US Pre-Clearance facility. Etihad added a similar lounge after their Pre-Clearance facility in Abu Dhabi a while back as well.
Passengers on select US-bound flights from Dublin clear immigration before departure, meaning they have to leave the lounge earlier than they’d otherwise have to. Since you have to allow some buffer, it’s fantastic that there’s a lounge after the facility, so that you don’t have to sit in the gate area.
The lounge is open to premium passengers on Aer Lingus, American, Delta, and United.
The lounge officially opened today, and longtime reader Sam (who also recently wrote about maximizing American’s Business Extra program) was among the first guests to use it.
Below I’ll share the pictures that Sam sent me. He said that the lounge is beautiful with minimalist decor, and that the staff were very clearly proud of the lounge.
The lounge also has shower rooms (as you’ll see pictured below), though oddly they apparently don’t have anything else in them. No toilet, no sink, no mirror, no garbage can, etc.
Anyway, here are the pictures of the lounge that Sam shared, and I hope to check out the lounge soon myself:
Thanks again to Sam for sharing the pictures of this new lounge!
