Qatar Airways has started daily flights from Dublin to Doha. Pól Ó Conghaile got a sneak peek inside one of the pride of its fleet.

Fancy a look inside a 'Five-Star' airline?

That's how Qatar Airways, which today launched the first-ever scheduled flights between Ireland and Qatar, describes itself.

The inaugural Dublin-Doha flights were operated with a spanking new A350 aircraft, but the ongoing service will use a Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

Our Travel Editor's video (above) gives a small hint of the luxury on offer.

Flights take just over seven hours, and will connect Irish passengers with 150 onward destinations from Doha's Hammad International Airport.

Today was the first time a commercial passenger A350 has landed in ireland.
