New Year's Festival in Dublin
Welcome in the New Year in Dublin
One of the biggest New Year’s Eve celebrations on the island of Ireland, the New Year’s Festival Dublin is a thrilling countdown experience filled with great music, dazzling light shows and, of course, fireworks displays.
Taking place across two fun-filled days, the festival welcomes visitors from all over the world who come to join the locals as they ring in the New Year.
Fireworks, festivities and more!
At Dublin’s iconic Custom House, the choreographed Liffey Lights illuminate the city's buildings, top Irish musicians rock out at the Countdown Concert, and spectacular fireworks displays light up the midnight sky – what a perfect way to round off the year!
Look beyond the festival and you'll find a city brimming with life and fun. Amazing attractions such as the Guinness Storehouse, EPIC – the Irish Emigration Museum and the Book of Kells at Trinity College Dublin will keep you entertained throughout your stay. Superb restaurants and the city's famous pubs will ensure you're fuelled up and ready for the festivities. And that great Dublin welcome will make you feel like you've come home for the mother of all parties!
