The ‘outrageous’ price a passenger paid for a basic breakfast at Dublin Airport was branded ‘criminal’

People were shocked at the price of some staple food items at Dublin Airport after a passenger shared his bill after buying toast, sausages and two hot drinks.

Journalist Kevin Doyle took to Twitter on Monday morning to show his followers the airport breakfast, which cost him a total of €18.65.

He took four slices of toast, two sausages, two cups of tea or coffee, and a bottle of water.

Sharing a photo of the offer, he said: “Dublin airport has sorted out the security queues but breakfast is another story. No bacon, no cakes…and €18.65 for this gourmet selection.”

People were quick to respond to the post, saying the price was “criminally” high.

One person wrote: “Looks like Dublin airport is now out of control price wise. Cost of flights, services, taxi parking. Security. Transport minister only cares about territory! It’s like waste material on Saturday 33 years after the original. .”

A second said, “Wow. I hope these are Irish coffees.”

While a third wrote: “That’s criminal, Jesus wept.”

“They robbed you!!!!!!!!”, commented a fourth.

However, others offered the passenger some alternatives to avoid paying the hefty bill.

They said, “That’s why we bring our own sandwiches when we travel! I learned this message between the airport and the airlines a long time ago, plus they’re so much tastier.”

Another said: “Why didn’t you tell them to keep it? You get 4 or 5 sausages at a deli for €2 so you could have gotten around 18 sausages for the price.”

Dublin Airport recently launched its latest food and beverage offering in partnership with international food operator SSP.

SSP will operate 24 food and drink outlets at Dublin Airport, working with Irish brands including The White Hag, Hugh Maguire – The Smokin’ Butcher, Teeling Whiskey and McCloskey’s Bakery.
