The traditional gathering place in Dublin for seeing in the New Year is at Christ Church Cathedral, where the famous old bells have been pealing out a welcome to the coming year for as long as anyone can remember.

Traditionally a 16 bell peal is sounded, sometimes as many as 19 bells are used.

Now this traditional small scale event has been subsumed into a busy four day festival where the whole of Dublin comes to life to welcome the new year.

Events include a huge open air countdown concert on New Year’s Eve, taking place in College Green in the city centre, during which surrounding buildings including Trinity College are illuminated with a brilliant light show. This is a ticketed event so you’ll need to book in advance.

This is preceded by a procession of light through the streets of Dublin, with street perfomers and dancers keeping the crowds entertained.

Any morning after blues can be banished at the Big Breakfast on New Year’s Day, and helpfully this goes on all day in Meeting House Square in Temple Bar. There will be more street performers, a food market and lots of dancing in the streets.
