New Year's Festival Dublin
Welcome in the New Year in Dublin
What better way to say hello to 2024 than by attending one of the largest New Year’s Eve parties on the island of Ireland? The New Year’s Festival Dublin is a thrilling countdown experience filled with family friendly public events, incredible live performances and dazzling light shows.
Taking place across four fun-filled days, the festival welcomes visitors from all over the world to join the locals and ring in the New Year. This is the only place to be on New Year's Eve in 2023.
Festivities and fun!
In the heart of the city, as we count down the final moments of 2023, experience a spectacular choreographed visual and musical display, featuring original music that captures the unique feeling of visiting Ireland. This year, a number of artists will be ringing in the New Year with you at Dublin Castle, including rising Irish artists Moncrieff, Lea Heart and Lucy Gaffney. 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 street parties!
