Speaking about the new opening, Gary McLean, Managing Director of Dublin Airport said: “This a great addition to the offering available to passengers in the terminals at Dublin Airport.

“We listen closely to passenger feedback and know that being able to get a haircut in the airport, either before or after a flight, is going to prove really popular. It’s something that we’ve continually heard that passengers would like to be able to get while visiting the airport and it’s great to see it open just as the peak summer period gets underway.

“We continue to explore other services and outlets that we can introduce into the terminals and passengers can look forward to more exciting additions soon.”
