The Irish House: Kolkata’s Premium Airport Lounge Review

If you’re a business class traveller flying out of Kolkata and don’t prefer crowded lounges, you’re fortunate to have a premium airport lounge. I recently accessed this newly opened lounge and here’s a quick look into the same.

Food optionsDecent food spread

This is the best airport lounge at Kolkata Airport. So as long as you’re able to access this lounge, you should be avoiding the other crowded TFS lounge.


Most sign boards would take you to the other lounge that’s named as: Travel Club Lounge. Fortunately The Irish House is also located in the same floor.

Just follow the sign boards that take you to the entrance of the Travel Club Lounge, then take left, walk few steps and you should be able to find The Irish House on the right.


I used my Priority Pass that I received with HDFC Infinia credit card to get access to this lounge. If you’re wondering what else can get you access to the lounge, here’s a quick look at it,

From what I’ve noticed, the lounge is accessed by business class travellers and Airline crew most of the time. As the airside is shared both by domestic and international passengers, I saw an international flight crew in the lounge. 

I was also surprised to see someone use lounge key membership (foreign credit card) to access the lounge. 

Seating & Interiors

The lounge has proper dining tables, lounge seats and then some comfy green lounge chairs that looks so beautiful. Here are some lovely pics for your eyes:

The food spread is almost same as what I saw at the other lounge the same day, except that here the stock is full and look clean. Additionally, there was also someone nearby to help you with whatever you need. 

Taste is quite good and that Uttapam was truly delicious, so much so that I went for 3 rounds. It’s good to see south Indian dishes tasting well here. The Idly though is nowhere good across north/east India (even in hotels).
