My 2017 Round the World trip starts right here at Belfast International’s Airport Lounge, the Causeway Lounge!
Causeway Lounge & Priority Pass
This is the first lounge that I get to try with my recently acquired Priority Pass. If you don’t have the Pass, you can pay on arrival if there is room. The lounge is situated airside between gates 16 and 17 and is clearly signposted.
Drinks & Snacks
The staff at the Causeway Lounge at Belfast International Airport were friendly and reminded me (at 9am) that only three alcoholic beverages would be served per customer. The check-in clerk was more than a little surprised at MY surprise when I questioned that anyone would drink so early! Clearly some people do! Whatever gets your holiday started with a bang, I suppose.
The Giants Causeway Connection
The lounge is not big by international standards, but the layout is a sensible mix of low, comfortable seats and small tables with dining chairs. In very broad terms, the lounge is laid out to resemble the hexagonal shape of the stones at the Giant’s Causeway.
You might be able to see my luggage in the picture above. Yes, that is ALL the luggage that I took with me for a Round the World trip. I prefer to travel light (see a review of this backpack as well as other gear that I use).
Causeway Lounge at Belfast International Airport: Breakfast Options
You pick up your breakfast from the long counter that runs along one side of the lounge. Options included self-service porridge pots, fresh fruit and hot bacon brioche rolls with brown or red sauce. Just the ticket at the start of my trip, especially Ryanair delayed my flight to London Gatwick!! I was grateful I could access the Causeway Lounge at Belfast International Airport.
And so it begins… the first day of a five month Round the World adventure! Next stop London!
