HAVE you started planning your New Year’s Eve yet? Why not ring in 2018 with the New Year’s Festival Dublin!
Dublin City will light up over two days with four spectacular events from December 31 into January 1.
The Custom House – an iconic Dublin landmark – will be the centre for NYF Dublin’s countdown and New Year’s Day celebrations this year.
For the first time ever, two spectacular “midnight moment” events will count down to 2018 in style – Liffey Lights Midnight Moment, and the family-friendly Liffey Lights Midnight Moment – Matinee, starting at the earlier time of 6.30pm.
Onlookers can watch some amazing aerial and aquatic displays as acrobatic performers take to the sky and to the River Liffey.
Both world-class, high-flying spectacles will be performed against the backdrop of the iconic Custom House, with the River Liffey taking centre stage.
These are free, ticketed events (however, advance booking is required).
Tickets are available right now for advance booking from, with would-be onlookers urged to book early to avoid disappointment.
NYF Dublin is an initiative by Failte Ireland in partnership with Dublin City Council and produced and promoted by MCD Productions.
Keelin Fagan, head of Dublin for Failte Ireland, said: “This year’s festival has an action-packed programme with spectacular, welcoming and fun events planned over the two days with something for everyone.”
