Win tickets to the Dublin New Year’s Eve Countdown Spectacular
Paul Brady, Damien Dempsey, Bressie, Riverdance and a huge celebration amid a festival in Dublin city centre. Would you like to be there on New Year’s Eve?
I’m sitting here trying to remember what we did last New Years Eve. I know there was a pub and then the bells at St Patrick’s Cathedral and a couple of drinks but it wasn’t anything special. It wasn’t an event. I don’t think there was a BIG event on in the City Centre that we could have gone to.

There’s a big 3 day festival on in Dublin that weekend – December 30 to January 1 – called NYE Dublin, created to “animate Dublin city centre, engage residents and attract visitors to the capital over the three day period.”
During the festival, seasonal markets will be located in central locations across Dublin, including Wolfe Tone Square, Temple Bar and Barnardo Square. Children’s entertainment will be provided in various ‘kids’ fun zones’ including an ice rink in Wolfe Tone Square.
There will be a host of other activities scheduled across the city to entertain adults including Irish movie screenings in the Grand Social, readings and events at the James Joyce Centre and stunning projections on Trinity College.
On New Year’s Eve, the side streets of the city centre will become a hive of activity with street festivals including live entertainment, DJs, street theatre and circus acts to create a lively atmosphere in the build up to the countdown celebrations.
Some of the events listed are the 7UP Winter Wonderland at Kilmainham, Robinson Crusoe & The Pirates of the Carribbean at the Gaiety, Sister Act at the Grand Canal Theatre, the Gardiner Street Gospel Choir, the Ringing of the Bells at Christ Church Cathedral, Choral Evensong and Handel’s Messiah at St Patrick’s Cathedral and the Big Wakeup at the 40 foot in Sandycove.
