Places to Eat and Shop at Knock Airport
In order to ensure that they complete check-in and security protocol in time to make their flight, most passengers show up at Knock Airport terminal with plenty of time to spare. Those who end up with time to spare can pay a visit to an airport restaurant or spend time shopping for gifts or traveller sundries.
The finest eatery in Ireland West Airport Knock is Sláinte Restaurant and Bar. It is located on the first floor of the terminal and offers views of the runway and terminal surroundings. Sláinte Restaurant’s menu features hot and cold dishes and a full selection of beer, wine and spirits. Children enjoy the play area, ice cream parlour and candy floss booth.
One floor down is Danann’s Café and Bar, which has more of a pub atmosphere. This is a good place to post up with a book and a cappuccino while waiting for a flight to arrive. Danann’s Café is particularly well-known for its panini and soup combos.
Both of the above restaurants are on the landside of security and open to anyone. Ireland West Café Bar is airside, and it’s only open to ticketed passengers. This is the newest addition to Knock Airport’s dining scene, and it serves hot and cold food and snacks.
