Business and First Class passengers at the Dublin Airport in Dublin, Ireland have a new premier lounge to choose from, that is if they are flying east. The new lounge is known as East Lounge and is located past security screening between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. The newly opened lounge has a capacity for 86 guests. It will cater to travelers flying on Emirates, Etihad Airways and Turkish Airlines.

The lounge offers a calm space, where travelers can relax, dine or even get work done before their flight. Like many lounges around the world, the lounge has been designed with the city it is nestled in in mind. The East Lounge has a uniquely Irish feel; it features locally crafted furniture, art, fabrics and offers stunning views of both the airfield and the surrounding Dublin mountains.

There are areas to relax and work, and they are divided. Not only does the lounge offer food and drinks at the bar and restaurant, but also guests can enjoy other perks while they are at it. East Lounge offers free high-speed Wi-Fi, charging outlets, an entertainment area, luxury shower rooms, a quiet prayer room and even a concierge service.

Executive Chefs created a great menu showing off the food and drinks available at East Lounge. Guests can look forward to dishes showcasing locally and nationally sourced Irish produce. Of course, in Ireland, people love their tea, and guests of the lounge will be able to choose from over 150 blends and flavors. There will also be four very different roasts of coffee available to guests, barista-style.
