Buy Before You Fly – Shopping at The Loop Goes Online

We thought we couldn't love holidays anymore... we were wrong! We love a pre-flight splurge at The Loop, and now you can buy from the comfort of your own home before you fly.

Whether you love or loathe flying (we love!), we’ve yet to come across anyone who doesn’t enjoy a little splurge in the airport Duty Free…

Now, treating yourself when you’re travelling has gotten even easier, with the launch of online shopping at, the online store for The Loop at Dublin, Cork and Shannon airports.

Whether it’s a giant Toblerone or a bottle of your favourite scent, you can browse and buy online before you fly and pick up your purchases at the airport.

Speaking at the launch of the service yesterday evening, Jean Ann Taylor, Head of Retail for The Loop, said: “We now offer an extensive range of products online, which allows passengers to browse and buy luxury brands in their own time.”

Passengers can collect purchases at the airport before flying, or use the Shop and Collect service so your buys are free of charge and collected on your return, eliminating any pesky baggage restriction problems.

There was extra good news for travellers using Cork or Shannon airports, as brands previously only available at Dublin Airport can now be ordered online and collected at either Shannon or Dublin.

Even more good news for beauty fans, also announced that it will be the first airport retailer in the world to go live online with MAC, one of our absolute favourites!

With great value on brands like Jo Malone, YSL, Bobbi Brown and more, we figure it’s just another reason to plan a little trip away with the girls…
