51st&Green - The US Preclearance Lounge

Where Ireland and America Connect

Introducing 51st&Green


51st&Green is an exciting new lounge concept by Dublin Airport for passengers travelling to the United States.

Located after US Preclearance in Terminal 2 and beside the US departure gates, it is a 'world's first' as it is the closest airport lounge to an active runway.

The lounge is 750 sq m with the capacity of seating 180 people. It is located at ramp level and the design maximizes the natural light and the views of the runway activity. The layout of the lounge is inspired by Newgrange and the 32m entrance corridor slopes into a bright open space acting as a decompression zone and enabling customers to instantly relax on arrival.

Take a look at our 51st&Green showcase video.

Lounge Access

We are now welcoming all passengers to 51st&Green. Lounge access is priced at €39 per person and is payable on the door. Passengers holding business class tickets will have complimentary access.

Please contact your airline directly if you have a query regarding your entitlements.


Passenger Experience

The lounge is truly unique as it's under US jurisdiction yet still on Irish soil. The name, 51st&Green, is inspired by this theme of intersection. It represents the place where Ireland and America connect - the 51st State of America and Green for Ireland and Dublin Airport.

The core theme of the intersection of Ireland and America is reflected in all aspects of the lounge experience - the design, the service, the food and communications.

The lounge is zoned by activity, allowing customers spend their time as they wish and giving them space to relax, work, play or eat as they wait to be called to their boarding gate, located just moments away.
