Before Security Smoking

Smoking is only permitted in designated areas outside the terminals.

After Security Smoking

Terminal 1:

Update from Gary 2023: Airside, upstairs behind the Garden Terrace bar. Go through the bar to an outside, covered terrace with seats and tables.

Update from Klaus, Sept 2022: I can confirm that the terrace is still in operation. However they covered the smoking signs downstairs, I hope it is not a negative harbinger.

Update from Michael K, Oct 2021: Dublin Airport T1: The previously described garden terrace still exists. Nice all outside smoking terrace above starbucks. Photos below.

May be an image of one or more people and indoor

Update from Lubov C. on the 2nd Feb 2019: There's still a smoking area at T1, Dublin airport. It's on the second floor, above Starbucks. Photos below.

Update from Coti L. on the 25th Sept 2018: In Dublin airport there’s a smoking terrace still functioning, I took the elevator at Starbucks and got there...

Once through Security go right and look for "Food Court 2",  (it is located upstairs accessed by escalator or lift) here you will find the "Garden Terrace" were smoking is permitted.

Terminal 2:

Tip from Terry: Dublin...T1 after security smoking area upstairs in beer garden, T2 has no smoking but after security follow the signs to gates 100 to 300 and keep walking all the way until you see Boots and other shops then you are in T1 and can go upstairs to beer garden, however it takes at least 10-15 mins each way so best add on 30mins for your smoke.

Also to note you can walk to this area from Terminal 2 on the airside departures level, its a 10 to 12 minute walk each way.
