Dublin is the capital city and the most popular entry gate for international visitors to Ireland. The city is well known for its vibrancy, nightlife, tourist attractions, events and celebrations on next coming New Years Eve 2017.
A glimpse of Dublin
Dublin is the biggest city of Ireland. It is located on Ireland’s east coast, at the mouth of River Liffey in Leinster province. The city is a historical and contemporary center for education, the arts, administration, economy and industry of Ireland. It’s listed within top 30 of global cities over the world.
Welcoming, casual and yet bursting with energy, Dublin is the perfect place to experience the year’s biggest celebration. And just for the craic, they’ve turned that one night into a three-day festival of live music, comedy shows and unique events. And why not? After all, we’ve got 362 days to wait before the next New Year’s Festival comes around.
From Dublin Castle and College Green to Temple Bar and the banks of the Liffey, the streets of this fair city, its cafes, galleries and restaurants become pop-up venues for shows, parades, arts trails, a festival food village and even a New Year’s Day fun run (if you’ve the strength). See Kodaline headline the Countdown Concert and truly immerse yourself in the spirit of the festival.
Whether you’ve been to Dublin a 100 times before or it’s your first time strolling down Grafton Street making new friends, New Year’s is the perfect time to fall in love with one of the world’s great cities
Get ready to ring in the New Year with the biggest Celebration Dublin has ever seen. The NYF Dublin Three Countdown Concert invites you to celebrate in the heart of Dublin city on Dame Street. With stellar music performances lined up for this year, prepare for an unforgettable Midnight Moment.
The good news – Dublin has a great variety of clubs regardless of your music tastes, sexual preference and nightlife habits. The bad news – most have a cover charge, sometimes between €15-20 on weekends. Most of them close (ie stop serving drink) at about 02:30, but some stay open a little later. The mythical lock-in (when the venue closes the shutters and serves drink long after closing time) happens very rarely – we estimate an average three times in a lifetime – but it does happen.
