Passengers at Dublin Airport can look forward to being a cut above the rest on their travels with the opening of a new The Grafton Barber shop in Terminal 1.

The new store, located in T1 Arrivals, will open next week and will see top-quality barbering services return to Dublin Airport after a 30-year absence and is the 60th The Grafton Barber store to open in Ireland.

The official opening ceremony will be held on Thursday, July 4 at 1pm and will be inaugurated by the esteemed actor James Nesbitt, marking a significant milestone in The Grafton Barber’s history.

Services available to passengers, staff and other users of the airport will include:

  • Fresh haircuts for your holiday travels
  • Open razor shaves for a polished business trip look
  • Beard trims for weekend getaways
  • Cuts and styles for kids with special offers
  • Senior traveller discounts to cater to all generations

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.”
