Dublin Airport would like to express sincere gratitude to all members of the public who have been in touch with us to offer donations and help to Ukrainian nationals coming to Ireland, including those being received at the reception facility located in the Old Central Terminal Building at the airport.

All such offers are well-meaning and appreciated. However, we would like to reassure the public that all of the supply needs of the centre are currently being met. As such, we are not seeking any further donations to the centre. We kindly ask that the public do not bring items to the Airport. 

Instead, we would encourage members of the public seeking to help the people of Ukraine to visit the following Government links:

Anyone wishing to offer accommodation to Ukrainians in Ireland should visit the Irish Red Cross' Register of Pledges page here

Monetary donations can also be made via the Irish Red Cross website.
