Dublin, Republic of Ireland, 31 December 2014, Midnight

Dublin River Liffey Bridge

Dublin is a city that embraces a good party at pretty much any time of year so New year's Eve here is really just another excuse. In recent years they've really raised the bar though, with the NYE Dublin Festival holding a series of special events to provide entertainment for all ages. I've never been to Dublin at new years, but from visits at other times of year I can vouch for the friendly welcome you're sure to receive, and with so much going on it certainly seems a great option so see in the new year.

Dublin also embraces the New Year with a New Years Day parade, organised in honour of the Lord Mayor. For more details of this event see our New Years Day page.

Fireworks, Events & Party Listings


There are several major events in Dublin on New Year's Eve 2014-2015: The Countdown Concert, Fireworks Spectacular and People's Procession of Light are all taking place on December 31st. The party for 2014/15 is again sponsored by mobile phone giants 3 and goes under the official title of 3 NYE Dublin.

You do need to get your tickets in advance, they usually go on sale around the end of October, we'll put the link for tickets on here as soon as we get it.

Countdown Concert: Returns again year to help see in 2015. Takes place at College Green, getting underway at 8.30pm and scheduled to run right through until 1am. There will also be 3D projections on Trinity College to help mark the midnight countdown - they were one of the highlights of the whole festival last year.

Big Bang Fireworks Spectacular: Head down to St Stephen's Green for the fireworks, a key part of the NYE Dublin Festival. The streets surrounding the green will be closed to allow easier access to the location, and there will be live music and street theatre performers in the area to help provide entertainment as the buildup takes place.

People's Procession of Light: Officially launching the NYE festival, the procession is another free and family friendly event. It gets underway at around 7pm and will work it's way through the winding city centre streets before reaching St Stephen's Green in plenty of time for the midnight countdown and firework display.

The will also be The Big Brunch 2015 event on New Year's Day in Dublin, taking place at the Meeting House Square, Temple Bar. This is a free, family friendly event with live music, dancing and various performers. Get more details on all the official NYE Dublin events here

if you're looking for new year dining options then Dublin offers plenty of choice, from fine dining to a wide range of kebab and burger joints! Top recommended restaurants include the Pearl Brasserie, Sabor Brazil, The Vintage Kitchen and Rustic Stone. Veggie options are limited, but you will get a decent vegan feed at Umi Falafel. See the full range of Dublin restaurants, with customer reviews, here.
