The overhaul will result in more than 20 new and improved bars, cafes and restaurants, across both terminals

The latest changes represent the final piece in a five-year journey to transform the food and beverage options available to passengers and mean there are now 42 different outlets available across the two terminals.

The latest changes will be carried out in partnership with Irish food services and hospitality specialist KSG and operator Lagardère Travel Retail over the course of 2024. Work started on several units this week and will continue either side of the busy summer period, with more than half of the new and revamped units opening by June. 

Among the brands arriving at Dublin Airport over the coming months will be Supermac's, Papa John’s, Insomnia Coffee and Pret A Manger, while existing outlets such as Butler's Chocolate Cafe, Burger King and Jump Juice will increase their presence in the terminals with enhanced outlets both airside and landside.

Vincent Harrison, chief commercial and development officer at daa, the operator of Dublin Airport: “These enhancements build on the many new outlets we have opened and improved in the terminals over recent years. We've listened closely to passengers and have heard loud and clear that they want more choice, including more gluten-free options, and by working with our partners, we are going to offer them more variety than ever before.” 

What’s in store for Terminal 1

The changes will see the creation of a food hall in Terminal 1, introducing new Korean and Thai street food options, an Arthur Guinness Bar, and a new large Italian restaurant. Also coming to the food hall in 2024 will be a number of well-known local and international brands.

The improvements being made in Terminal 1 will extend to the gates.

Changes to Terminal 2

Further improvements are planned in T2 this year, following the opening of The Mezz street food concept last summer. 

A key addition to Terminal 2 landside will be the new Fitzgerald's Restaurant and Bar, named after Desmond Fitzgerald, the architect responsible for the design of the original Dublin Airport terminal.  Papa John's restaurant will move into the space previously occupied by Wright's of Howth, while a new coffee shop called Roasted Notes Speciality Coffee will open in Terminal 2 landside. 

Elsewhere, the existing Butler's Coffee shops in both T1 and T2 will be expanded.
