Aspire’s first airport business lounge has opened in Ireland at Cork Airport.

Operators Swissport unveiled the 80-head lounge in response to an increase in demand for premium lounge access from business travellers across the south of Ireland.

Open to all travellers, irrespective of airline or class of travel, the lounge is the 31st Aspire Lounge to open globally. The new space is also accessible to Priority Pass, Diners Club and DragonPass cardholders, along with guests of certain airlines.


Complimentary food, tailored to different parts of the day, along with drinks and newspapers are available, and there is a range of dedicated zones for business, dining and relaxing along with tableside charging ports.

The complimentary breakfast includes Clonakilty black and white pudding, while Irish stew appears in the dinner options. The all-day cheeseboard showcases Cashel blue cheese along with Irish soda bread and Ballymaloe relish.

The drinks menu includes St. Patrick’s Gin, Jameson Irish Whiskey, Murphy’s Irish Stout, draught Heineken, Tipperary Irish Water, and Barry’s Tea. Lighter menu choices such as soups and salads are also available.

Entrance costs €24.99 if you pre-book online, on €28 on the door.
