Dublin Airport is aiming to bring a bit of artistic cheer to passengers once they’ve passed security with a series of new Irish art installations. The airport said the works are “designed to leave passengers with a positive lasting impression of Ireland”.

Three locations after the passenger security screening areas in both terminals have been chosen to depict native wildlife and thequality of Irish light. One installation, Vibrant Irish Light, located between Terminals 1 and 2, features a spectrum of rainbow colours which vary in intensity at different times of the day. The creation reaches its visual peak when flooded with mid-afternoon sunlight streaming through the glass wall looking out on the airfield, the DAA said.

The Irish wildlife and nature designs, which form a separate installation spread across two passenger departure areas, showcase the unique character of Ireland’s natural environment. These are accompanied by quotes from a number of Irish poets and writers such as Padraig Pearse, William Butler Yeats, James Joyce and Katherine Tynan.

“We strive to offer our passengers the best possible experience when travelling through Dublin Airport. We want passengers to feel that they are still in Ireland and not just at the beginning or the end of their journey at the airport,” said Dublin Airport Managing Director Vincent Harrison.

“The initiatives to date show that beautiful images or lighting can greatly enhance the ambience in particular areas of the airport.   These visually creative areas have been designed with a unique Irish flavour that includes Irish poetry and phrases with images of wildlife, land and colour to leave passengers with a positive lasting impression of Ireland,” he added.
