This post was originally written based on contributions from my mom who visited the IAD Turkish Airlines lounge in 2017 on their journey to Scotland and then updated based on my experience in 2023.

Turkish Airlines IAD lounge location, hours and access

The Turkish Airlines lounge at Washington Dulles airport is located in Concourse B, next to gate B43.

It is open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily, and children 6 and under are admitted free.  Access is available to Star Alliance Gold members, Star Alliance passengers traveling in international business class or first class or (probably the most likely among readers of this site), Priority Pass

Turkish lounge IAD seating

When my parents visited, they had 5+ hours between flights, we checked out the Turkish Airlines lounge at Dulles airport.  When we first arrived a little before noon, it was nearly empty, but by 1:30-2:00 pm, it was crowded, and we needed to share tables. When I visited on my way to Cairo in 2023, we were there about 10 a.m. and it was also crowded (before the EgyptAir flight leaves at noon)

There is also a bar and couches in another area at the lounge.

The planes outside on the Tarmac are so close, they look like they are going to drive through the window!

Turkish Airlines lounge IAD / Dulles wifi and other amenities

The wifi at the Turkish Airlines lounge at Dulles was quite fast, which is always a good thing for airport lounges!

There is also a nice bathroom and shower facilities. Note that when I was at the lounge in 2023 the shower room was “out of order” and with signs like that I wonder how long that will be up for…

There is also a prayer room offered

Lots of computers for use, a PlayStation if you ask for controllers and multiple TVs.

Turkish Airlines Dulles lounge food and drink

The spread was awesome, with hot and cold entrees. We had the chicken stew, tomato soup, both a little spicy, hummus and pita bread, and a variety of fruits. There were also cold salads.

There was a bar available but since, like Dan, we don’t drink alcohol, we can’t speak to the selection of different drinks.  I’d imagine they are “good”

And of course, who could taste Turkish food without sampling the baklava!

When I was there in 2023 it was breakfast time, so they had a variety of breakfast foods out.

The Bottom Line

The Turkish Airlines lounge Washington Dulles / IAD airport, if you have access to it through Priority Pass or otherwise, is definitely a solid lounge at Washington Dulles airport. It’s nothing amazing, but (depending on what time of day you’re going) it can be a nice place to sit and relax for a bit. It’s quite convenient to many of the international flights that fly out of the B terminal, but if you are flying Star Alliance international business class, you might want to check out the United Polaris IAD lounge. It’s a bit further away (in the C terminal) but it’s definitely bigger and better.
