51st and Green at DUB

I fly once a year DUB-ATL on D1. Last year we took advantage of the 51st and Green lounge and enjoyed it.
In Dublin you go through Irish security and are asked to wait in a pleasant but congested area until the monitors tell you to proceed to US Preclearance where you go through immigration and security. Then you proceed to the 51st and Green lounge. My question is, has anyone gone through the preclearance before being called to do so? I'd rather wait in the post-security lounge if I can get through the US areas sooner.
Thanks for any help.

You can go when you want! I didn't even know there were announcements and I'm there way in advance to avoid traffic on the M50 or through town if I go that way.

Thank you! I should have asked years ago. I would have saved a lot of money that was spent in The Whiskey Shop!

I sure hope that's a private lounge (like Priority Club) as opposed to a SkyClub substitute.....

Yep. And if you like plane spotting, you don't get much closer.

Was there last month, and my wife (who wouldn't know a 737 from a 777) spent a good 1/2 hour taking plane pics/videos.

It was our first trip to Dublin, and someone had told us to arrive really early. Ended up spending 2-3 hours there. Pretty nice when not swamped-especially if you can get a seat by the window.

Also, there's a small duty-free past security on the way there. Samples of whiskey - nothing better at 9am
