Etihad Business Class Lounge Dublin Review

Etihad Airways has laudably invested in a number of lounges in smaller outstations. Among others Etihad has its own dedicated lounge in Dublin.

If you have been to the Etihad Business Class Lounge in London Heathrow (Review) the lounge in Dublin will be a major deja-vu. There is the same color code used and very similar amenities.

I went before my flight (which was scheduled to depart at 9 AM) and sat down in the restaurant area.

There was a menu of made-to-order dishes which were mostly eggs. Since I don’t eat eggs I ordered one with the friendly request to leave the eggs out. This often creates utter confusion but the lounge attendants had no trouble at all to get me what I wanted. I also ordered espresso but thought it tasted ‘soapy’ and just bitter.

There is a separate self service buffet that had a number of good cheeses but also a number of low-quality and not very appetizing food options.

The lounge was rather crowded with a full Business Class in this 777 flight to Abu Dhabi. For the most part it was quiet though with most people waiting patiently.

I can imagine the food to be much better for lunch and/or dinner but I wasn’t able to judge that.

I used the dedicated lounge WiFi which was rather slow at 2 Mbit – but certainly usable.

We boarded about 45 minutes late and the host came around to announce boarding with a friendly ‘..board whenever you are ready…’

Etihad staff takes customer service seriously and the lounge is pleasant. This is not a temple of gourmet food but maybe that would happen during the flight?
