Celebrate New Year’s Eve and TradFest in Dublin
New Year Festival
Dublin’s New Year’s Festival transforms the city. Along the river Liffey you can enjoy everything from street performers and magic shows to high-octane fly boarding demonstrations. And of course, no celebration is complete without music – the 3Countdown Concert returns with Irish chart-toppers Kodaline ringing in the New Year.
TradFest, 24 – 28 January 2018
Once a year over a late winter week in Dublin, traditional Irish music can be heard at some of Dublin’s most unusual music venues. This is TradFest, a festival of mostly free events showcasing the entire spectrum of traditional and folk music. Every year some of the biggest names in folk music have performed at TradFest and this year's line-up is no different including Big Country, Martha Wainwright and Paddy Casey to name few!
