DUB security and pre clearance in oct 23

What is Dublin airport security and USA pre clearance like currently out of T2? Must one actually arrive 3 hours early for a 9am flight? With business class ticket and/or star alliance gold any benefits to get through?

Depends on time. If your flight is at 9 a.m. youll be arriving between 6 and 7 a.m. which will be busy but not overly so. Yes business class ticket will get you fast track. Star Alliance does not. I stand to be corrected but Business does get you through USCBP secondary security a little quicker but it doesnt let you skip the line when it comes to speaking with an officer.

CBP works very smoothly these days and as your flight is likely the first one of the day to the US you should sail through. They also actively discourage people from heading to CBP before being called via screens in the terminal. Id still be at the airport by 7 though. Earlier if checking in bags.

Unfortunately not. The post CBP area is sterile and doesnt have much bar the 51st and Green lounge, which is nice and you get access with a business ticket. But other than that theres nothing bar a couple of shops selling magazines and snacks.

Went through earlier this morning. Arrived at DUB at 6:40am for a 9:20am flight. It was WAY more than I needed. Security was an absolute breeze - I didnt have to remove any electronics or liquids at all. I milled around for a bit before going to PreClear, and that was also quick with Global Entry, the regular line was longer but not obscenely so. The 51 club was fine, I had a little bite and a coffee. Anyway, just thought I would report that it was no issue of course Murphy's law had I not drug myself out of bed at 5:00am and gotten going early it probably would have been different.
