Review: T2 Lounge Dublin Airport

In October 2022, I had the pleasure of visiting the British Isles with one of my best friends.

Because I am inveterate schemer who is morally and monetarily opposed to paying the Air Passenger Duty (APD) on flights out of the United Kingdom, and also because I have some interest in Irish history, I did what any self-respecting tax dodger would do and opted to go to Ireland.

With a quick swipe of my Priority Pass card, which comes as a benefit with my American Express Platinum Card, I was able to gain entrance for both myself and a guest without issue.
