The IAA continues to prepare for the future with the construction of a new visual control tower that, together with a new runway, will help with airspace management and traffic flow.

At 87.7m high, the visual control tower is Ireland’s tallest occupied structure and is a commanding new addition to the city’s skyline that can be seen from towns and villages in Dublin, Meath, Louth, Kildare and Wicklow. The tower, a key element in complex high-traffic airports, was designed as a slim, elegant structure offering clear sight lines of both the current and future runways. The iconic new facility represents a commitment by IAA’s Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP) to improved safety, energy efficiency, and enhanced service for customers. Fitted out with the most modern air traffic management, communications and aviation surveillance equipment, the new tower, as the most modern ATC facility in Europe is designed to ensure safety of operations at Dublin airport.

There is no public transport to the venue, and parking is limited.
