Aspire Lounge at Cork Airport

Rated As: Very Good star star star star star Based on 158 genuine customer reviews

The first Aspire Lounge to open in the Republic of Ireland, the Cork Aspire Airport lounge offers a great range of food and drink, including a few local Irish specialties, as well as allowing you to fully relax in this busy and bustling airport.

Take a seat and find a comfortable spot to call you own whilst you relax before you board your flight. If you are around for breakfast, enjoy Clonakility Black or White pudding with your hearty hot breakfast and get your day off to a great start. Throughout the rest of the day enjoy local foods such as Cashel Irish Farmhouse Blue Cheese on our cheeseboard along with Irish Soda Bread and relishes. There's lots more complimentary food available that can be viewed on our menu.

A variety of seating options allow guests to find a space no matter how they wish to spend their time before their flight, be it catching up on a little work, finding a comfortable place to read a book, or chatting with your travelling companions over a freshly brewed cup of coffee or local Barry's Tea.

Whatever the reason for travelling, there is no better place to start your journey than at Cork Airport than in the new Aspire Airport Lounge.
