"lounge has own showers and washrooms"

(Ireland)

The new Aer Lingus Gold Circle Business Class lounge at Dublin Airport spans two floors with views of the apron A water feaTUre dominates one wall. There are work stations and complimentary wifi. The range of food on offer during the early morning is sufficient and a bar service is available. This lounge has own showers and washrooms something the former lounge lacked. The lounge is also open to non FFP members for a 25euro fee.

"a nice little selection of food and drink"

(Ireland)

Not to the same standard as other lounges (eg. Amsterdam) but actually pretty good. Staff (when they're there) are nice and the lounge has a nice little selection of food and drink and free internet (although fair play to cork it's free throughout the airport). My only issue with cork is that it doesn't open until i think something like 6:00 although the flight to amsterdam leaves at 6:10. As with their other lounges no toilets although this doesn't really bother me that much.

"the most dismal depressing miserable lounge"

(United States)

Sitting here now kicking myself that I bought a day pass. Absolutely the most dismal depressing miserable lounge. In a windowless bunker. Shoddy uncomfortable furniture inedible old sandwiches indifferent attendant. I guess the troubles in Ireland filter down to their Airport lounges.

"incredulous that I paid for access to this"

(United Kingdom)

I'm sitting in the lounge a bit incredulous that I paid for access to this. I paid for it because I had a lot of time to kill and it seemed a good way to pass the day. What a gloomy awful lounge. I found this page because I was looking to see if maybe I'd missed something because it seems there is no free WiFi. Completely insane. I thought this was for business travellers? The girl at the desk looked me up and down when I walked in too so apparently despite having a lounge that looks like a 3rd grade classroom without the fun stuff on the walls (or windows) they have a problem with how people dress? I'm neatly attired but I'm flying today so I am absolutely not wearing a suit. Anyway the long and short of it is that the lounge is unfriendly no amenities no toilets no natural light can't really see myself bothering with it again.

"I didn't expect to see work stations gone"

(United Kingdom)

My first visit to the Gold Circle lounge in many months. I was aware from other reviews of the decrease in size but I didn't expect to see the work stations gone too. The only saving grace is that there is a choice of breads and pastries in the morning.

"lounge has become almost a joke"

(United Kingdom)

The range of food and beverages is reasonable. The main attraction of this lounge is that it is beside boarding gates. This evening I noticed the red wine bottle was empty. I asked the attendant to replace it but she wasn't able to open the new bottle. I can understand a bottle of wine being used but to have a staff member unable to open another is beyond belief. What used to be a very good lounge has become almost a joke.

"airline seems to put staff ahead of customers"

(United Kingdom)

The Gold Circle Lounge at EI home airport of Dublin has just been cut in size by around two thirds. Only a corner of the old lounge remains and the rest has been transformed into a staff room. Rather typical of EI really - an airline that typically seems to put staff ahead of customers. What remains of the lounge is mostly hard airport style seating. Not very must when we visited. Limited selection of drinks. Nice cookies. Glasses were very old and a little too dirty to use. Not convenient to most of EI's departure gates (10 min walk and then backtrack + 10 more minutes).

"nothing prepared me for the filthy tip"

(United Kingdom)

I have posted previous comments on Aer Lingus lounges but nothing prepared me for the filthy tip that is Chicago Gold Circle lounge. Its tiny dirty furniture all stained ceiling was all stained. Drinks okay no food not even a cracker. I don't normally fly biz class with EI and judging by the reviews and the state of the lounges I never will.

"the pokiest grubbiest lounge I have ever seen"

(United Kingdom)

I got to use the Aer Lingus lounge as I was flying on Icelandair. This has got to be the pokiest grubbiest lounge I have ever seen or used. The food was soggy and not fresh and the decor is not very good. Gives a feeling of boredom and gloom. Aer Lingus needs to brighten this lounge up a lot. The lady there was nice and friendly - she was the best part about this lounge.
