Dublin Airport just has just opened a new sensory room
It has been created for passengers with autism, dementia, cognitive impairment or other special needs.
Dublin Airport has today unveiled a new sensory room which is located after security screening in Terminal 2. It can be found just before the 400 boarding gates and can also be accessed via Terminal 1.
Depending on the needs of the passenger, it can be transformed from a calm and relaxing space into an environment that is stimulating and full of light.
It includes installations such as mood lighting, bean bags, relaxing music, comfortable seating, digital display panels, tactile panels, textured flooring and a game to improve memory and motor skills.
