Written by Matilda Buckingham / December 14, 2017

With the end of 2017 getting closer and closer, you should probably start thinking about your plans for New Year's Eve and New Year's Day! New Year's Eve in Dublin is always tempting and is even more so this year with some BIG events planned...

Countdown to 2018 watching a breathtaking performance at George's Quay! The show will feature a symphony of lights dancing across the night sky as well as world-class acrobats performing aerial stunts across the River Liffey, so you definitely don't want to miss it. An event the whole family will love, performances will take place at both 6.30pm (7pm countdown) and 11.30pm (midnight countdown) so everyone can come along and celebrate! This is a FREE event but you'll need to book tickets in advance, which you can do here for the matinee show and here for the midnight show.

Get ready for an unforgettable New Year's Eve celebration as the 3Countdown Concert is taking place at Custom House on December 31st! Bring in the new year watching performances from the amazing Kodaline, Hudson Taylor and Keywest. How good does that sound? Tickets can be purchased here.

Spend your first day of 2018 enjoying the free, family-friendly celebrations at Custom House! Taking place from noon 'til 4pm, there's something for everyone to enjoy. From jugglers to mime artists to face painting, there'll even be street performers and jaw-dropping stunts from Flyboarders! 

Keelin Fagan, Head of Dublin for Fáilte Ireland said that “this year’s festival has an action packed programme with spectacular, welcoming and fun events planned over the two days with something for everyone”. She emphasised “For the first time ever, visitors will be treated to the unique visual spectacle of the Liffey Lights Midnight Moment. This new exciting event will be like no other staged in the city before with dazzling aerial, aquatic, acrobatic and light display performances over the River Liffey. It will promote the very best of what Dublin has to offer and will undoubtedly prove a magnet for people from home and abroad. This free show, open to all, is also being performed at a matinee performance so that family and friends can come along earlier in the day to celebrate and enjoy the countdown moment.”
