One of the nice things about flying to the US from Dublin (DUB) is that the airport has a US preclearance facility so you can go through US immigration before hopping the pond and skip having to wait in long lines to do this back on American soil.
Starting Monday, travelers flying through Dublin will have something to look forward to after they clear immigration. Dublin Airport recently announced it will be opening a preclearance lounge, which will be called 51st&Green, on Monday, July 18, describing it as an exciting experience inspired by the intersection of Ireland and America.

While there aren’t exact details on the hours of the lounge or what kind of amenities it will feature just yet, we do know that all transatlantic passengers flying with Aer Lingus, Delta, United and American Airlines, as well as any customers holding business-class tickets and those holding airline club cards will be granted access. According to the airport’s website, the lounge is located just after US preclearance beside the US departure gates.
This is a welcome addition for passengers traveling to the US, as it adds another option for pre-flight lounge comfort. Stay tuned for more details on its complete offerings after the grand opening next week.
