TRIP REPORT INDEX
Perfect if you need a shower, otherwise skip.
The Aer Lingus Revival Lounge in Dublin is my first visit to an ‘arrival' lounge. It's a small lounge that's easy to miss – located next to the baggage pick up. Usually, I just try to leave the airport as soon as I arrive. I probably should have done the same here as there is not much reason to stop (unless you need a shower) and I may have been able to beat the crowd at the Sixt car rental counter. During the flight, they handed out a flyer telling passengers about the lounge which provides a shirt/suit pressing service while you take a shower and freshen up. A nice perk if you need it. Don't expect another full departure lounge like the Aer Lingus JFK Lounge.
The steaming service was out of order when I arrived (I didn't need it anyway).
There is a very small seating area – enough for 8 people to sit down. That's probably more than enough as most people will just pop in for a coffee and to use the bathroom.
There was not much food here – just these frozen/packaged pastries. You know the kind… that no one wants to eat unless you're starving. We had just been served breakfast before landing so I wasn't expecting much.
Plenty of mini cans of soda and bottled water:
And a serious coffee machine that confused some of the guests:
The bathrooms were immaculate just as they were in the JFK lounge. You'll need to ask for access as they are locked and then cleaned after each person.
The hanger/closet on the right side slides through to the hallway so that you can get your shirt/suit picked up, pressed, and returned without anyone disturbing you inside the bathroom.

Have you used this lounge? Did I miss anything?
My Cameras: These photos were taken using my Canon S110 Digital Camera (which has been replaced by the S120) as well as my larger Nikon D50. I love the S110 – it’s tiny, fits in my pocket, and takes amazing pictures/videos.

Thanks for the review! We’ll be flying BOS-DUB in a few months and it’s good to know this lounge isn’t a huge draw.
I used this lounge last week after flying JFK-DUB in business. I flew overnight, arrived, showered, and went straight to my meeting. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
It’s a no-frills, nicely appointed, functional space to cleanup quickly.
It serves its purpose perfectly.
All else being equal, I would fly EI just for this added perk.
Was the shirt/suit pressing service working?
I am flying jfk-Dublin-Milan. I’ll be a transit passenger in Dublin. Will the aerlingus arrivals lounge be convenient as a transit passenger or do I have to go through immigration to access the lounge ?
That lounge was near the baggage pickup – close to where you’d exit the airport. If you have lounge access, you would probably want to visit the Aer Lingus Gold Circle Lounge
