New Years Eve

Does anyone know the places to go in Dublin on New Years Eve and how we get tickets. Have a rubbish new year every year so thought we'd try Dublin because we haven't been before. If anyone knows anything can you email me. 
Thanks x

Helen, I'd be really interested to know what sort of response, if any, you've had to this. Have just moved back to Dublin after 10 years and a load of friends are coming over from the UK to spend New Years Eve here.... I don't know what to do/where to go! Most people I speak to who live here say you're better to get out of Dublin for NY??!

There are four of us traveling from United States to Shannon for New Year's, did anything work out for any of you last year or the year before, we were thinking of heading to Galway or Dublin for New Years Eve, any suggestions??

Well ladies it seems we're all in the same boat. I've just moved here from Australia (6 weeks ago) and have a friend from London coming over to 'hit the town' with us on NYE and I don't have a clue where to take him! I'll keep my eyes on this site to see if anyone replies!

i live in dublin but never go there for new years eve. have heard sprit odeon and lillies are the spots to hit. sure if you google them youll get info on tickets. Beware though taxi's are a novelty in dublin on a night out!!

By Lou
2006-12-10 14:42:24

If you wanna check out it will show u a detailed list of all events on, on NYE. Stick in the date you wanna go out and u can purchase a ticket. Not all places require tickets. If your not into any of tat the best place to go is around Temple Bar in dublin city it is full of bars and clubs tat open late, but as Ann said you will be lucky to get a taxi outta dublin that night or any night as a matter of fact(",)Hope every one has a good night wat ever you do

Hi All, 
I'm just promoting our jazz trio for NYE. We're playing in Harris bar, Limerick city, which is a great spot. For €30, there's a champagne reception at 9pm, canapes and finger food, us, the band (vocals, piano and violin) playing our unique blend of jazz/funk until 12, and then a DJ from 12-2am. 
I think there might be a reduction for tickets bought beforehand- try ringing Harris bar on 061 312600 or me, Imogen on 087 2365070. 
Whatever you do, have a great night, and if you do join us, come and say hi- I'm the fiddler.

Re: New Years Eve outside of Dublin

Friends of mine have booked a night at Temple Spa down in Westmeath. Apparently just got Bridgestone award for the restaurant so they've brought in a high-calibre jazz duo to celebrate NYE in style. Me and my lady are considering also. Sounds like something with a bit of style. Dublin is to be avoided at all costs!!!

New Years Eve

Just a quick warning for Kyle in Dublin on the 1st most if not all pubs & shops close unlike in england so i wouldn't be planning a mad one then. As someone who has live here for all of life (25 years) I find it a let down most years because you get ripped on the door charges and in the city centre they always seem to put the prices up but if you do come try get somewhere in town to stay as Ann said above they are like gold dsk most weekends never mind just New Years Eve. Hope you enjoy your stay if you come!

Hey, im from belfast and my friends and I took a trip up to Dublin last week. We had no idea where to go out but ended up in a music bar type place called Whelans. It was amazing craic and all the people there were lovely. I would guess it would be a good bet for new years.

By Roisin
2006-12-31 00:27:58

good places are Tripod and crawdaddy, they are on harcourt street for dance music. 
rogue bar on the quays is also good, just ask a taxi driver... 
other than that, the vilage isnt bad, its also around harcourt street- actually , theres LOADS of places to go on that street and the one paralell, Camedon Street- D2 for fun rn'b, whelans as mentioned is very down to earth and on the same street. good luck

I'm taking my son, (14 years old), from Sweden to Dublin over New Years eve. Any good place to recommend that allows me to take him with me for a little more quiet celebration? Maybe a restaurant, music bar, jazz club or any place where people don't get to messy on New Years Eve?

Hello all 
Very nice to see this type of homepage where people are helping eachother out :) 
Me and my girlfriend are going to Dublin to celebrate New Years Eve 2007, and we are looking for a good restaurant and some kind of party, so we can have a nice evening.  
Can you recommend any good restaurants that aren't closed on New Years Eve? I have tried calling some restaurants, but they all said they were closed unfortunately :( 
We are thinking of going to "Brutus Gold's Lovetrain - Special New Years Eve Disco Party" which is being held at Spirit Dublin. (It can be found here: 
Any of you know anything about this party, and would you rather recommend us something else?

For me, the best place to be on New Year's eve from 11.30 pm onwards, is at Christchurch - everyone is there for the ringing of the bells and singing Auld Lang Syne - best fish n chips are right there too!!!or if you are at Trinity College - look straight up and it's at the top of George's St. Map;

Hey everyone! 
I flight from the Netherlands to spend NYE in Ireland too this year! 
Also looking for a plan with friends in Dublin. 
Have you found something nice? 
I got those links about clubs that do something special that night: 
Is it a better plan clubbing or 'pubbing' that special night? 
Hey! What if we all meet in a good pub/club? It would be fun! It seems that Niall knows where an international party takes place. 
Email me! Cheers 

By Ian
2007-12-25 23:06:46

you're mad to consider coming to Dublin for NYE. Pubs and Clubs are jam packed, and you will pay extra cover charges to get in! Plus, you'd better know your way around Dublin because chances are you'll be walking back to where you are staying. Its a joke to get a taxi in Dublin that night. Most locals now have house parties. 
If you are insistent on coming to Dublin for NYE make sure its a ticketed event and you have a ticket beforehand. 
sorry to sound so negative but best that you are pre-warned

By aoife
2007-12-26 20:26:41

The nitelink (bus service)is running on n.y.e starts at 12.30am till 4.30 goes to most area's in Dublin it's only 4 euro if you are a tourist more then likely you will be staying in the city center, so u can walk not far!! unlike ian making it out to be that bad to get around! some places have tickets like D2, Copper face Jacks, around 10/20euro you get a glass of champagne at midnight! 
I'm not sure where I am heading myself!I no I'll be in the city center! can't say I'm onto temple bar that much! I'm in Oz next year so I want a great new years this year!  
us dubs I'm afraid find it just as hard to think of somewhere to go! weekends I go to the Palace Camden St, D2 or Odeon (but odeon it's turned into more of a dance music place) Harcourt St, Fitzsimon's in temple bar! had good nights in all of these places. 
I like the idea of an international party sounds fun!?? 
p.s i hate young crowds in Redz or 21s Qbar on d'olier street. 
over 18's usually means it's u18's over 21's means under 21's  
I'm 23!! lol

There is plenty to do on New Years in Dublin. 
If you head to Temple Bar you will be sure to find a lively busy pub and you have Fitzsimons in Temple Bar aswell which is a night club/pub. 
You will find a night club or a pub on almost every street. Make sure you go in early around 7 or later if your not sure ask a bouncer who will be standing at a nightclub or pub.

Hi All, I always stay in Dublin for New Years and have a great year every year. We normally go to the Quays in Temple Bar -- Early- Live bands all day. Were staying in the Gresham Hotel this year so if you interesting in a tour guide with no agenda e-mail me back.

Taxis are hard to get on NYE, but there is always the nitelink bus service if you are staying near a route:

By Elaine
2007-12-29 19:35:31

NYE is always busy but that means that it should be a great night wherever you end up! As pointed out already Nitelinks are running so forget taxis, forget the bahumbuggers,'tis true that Dubs like to travel elswhere for NYE but only in the same way as anyone not from Dublin travels here. Advice is go out early, forget dinner, restaurants will be fully booked by now. Grab an Eddie Rockets or something en route to the pub. Temple Bar is tourist central (nothing wrong with that), Dawson St has a few (wannabe) swanky bars like Ron Blacks, Samsara & Cafe En Seine, with Dandelion around the corner, but if old man bars are more your scene, try Kehoes (good luck getting in!), The Dawson Lounge (smallest Pub in Dublin), O'Donoghues, Doheny & Nesbitts, Bruxelles, or O'Neills. All centrally located anyway... Have fun!!

By Jackson
2007-12-31 12:18:58

All these Dubliners seem to be so negative about New Years. I think for us tourists or expats simply being in a new city is novelty enough for a good night out. I have a few Aussie mates coming over from Belfast and Dublin and I am thinking we can just cruise round the town, drink til we drop and just get all out rowdy. Lucky I live a 5 minute walk from town though so taxis are not an issue. The idea of going out for New Years in my home city back in oz is very dull but I'm sure you Dubliners would love it, and vice versa. Will have to see how the night pans out. I think the trick with any New Years is not to have huge expectations.

There is an event on in Charleville Castle, Tullamore that is brilliant. Its called Glimmerball and is a big party in an amazing castle with band, djs, piano bar, roaring fires, nice food etc. Myself and my friends have been there the last two years and are going back again it's really good fun and a really nice crowd of people. They also run coaches from Dublin city centre return if you want. Check it out

I'm confident and can strike up a conversation with anybody, so somewhere where the people are banterous would be great if anyone has any recomendations? My music preferance is usually Rock and metal, but for New Year, i'm open to any musical genre (within reason!) Hope someone can help!

Fabulous place and food was amazing. this year im thinking of heading up north...anybody got any suggestions? somewhere good for shopping?

By Eoghan
2008-12-10 12:32:35

I live in Dublin, and go out once if not twice a week in the city.. 
If your looking for a decent spot with friendly people and cool music go wo whelans on wexford st 
If your looking forregular pop tunes and a laugh, go to Flannerys bar on wexford street(get there early though) and copper face jacks on harcourt street, two mins walk away. 
My advice is too kepp away from temple bar as its a rip off an a tourist trap. feel free to email me and id be happy to give you advice.

hi Eimear, you should check the pubs and clubs cos they often want prior notice if there is a gang of you. Also many pubs charge and entrance fee, for what i do not know as they do not offer anything much in return usually.

i can recommend the burlington new years extravaganza for anyone looking for a fun party night, more siuted to the over 30's not looking to rave the night away, dress is smart but casual, the great camonbert quartet are playing so i'm sure it will be a fab night as has been in previous years...anyone travelling from afar it.s only �99 per room to stay overnight... enjoy all...

As a Dub living here over 40 years, it is an expensive party spot. Best bet would be go to Christchurch for the Bells at 12, prior to that hang around Temple Bar as it aint that far a walk to Christ Church Cathederal. Be careful of the local thugs mind

It all depends what kind of music you like, Tripod is the best for house lovers. I would say AVOID Coppers and Flannerys as they are always jammed and play dire cheese (think 500 miles and eye of the tiger all night long)..

By Eliza

In my opinion Dublin is one of the worst places u can find for spending new year's eve. As a capital of european country it's a shame that there is nothing organized here! Every other big city - Berlin, London, Paris...etc.. has fireworks and concerts. Here it's just dead! Just pubs and restaurants! Boring!! I will defenitelly not spend another new year's eve here.

Are there any fireworks in Dublin on NYE? We're heading over and didn't want to go to a bar on the night itsef just hang outside; something similar to the fireworks on the Thames perhaps? 
Any advice or websites I'd appreciate it.

Hi there,

As far as I know there's some fireworks but I haven't been around Dublin for a while! Best bet is to book into a hostel in the city centre, they're very cheap, 15-20 a night and go out into Temple Bar or around Camden street or anywhere in the city centre really, the place has plenty of pubs with lots happening in them and most you wont have to pay into or need tickets....just get out early.... no matter where you go you'll have some fun (but yeah the taxis are scarce so be prepared to walk or bring flat shoes in the hand bags ladies :-) )

Hi everyone, 
Same as above...coming to Dublin to spend NYE over there. We're to belgian girls (women, 30')and it's our first time in Dublin, and Ireland. We don't like big clubs, house nor techno. Rather a more laid-back party (might be disco, rock, international, latin or of course Irish (though I haven't got a clue what's that supposed to sound like!) or a pub where some dancing might start later on. We're staying close to the temple bar area. Any ideas welcome! Or an invitation to a private dublin party would be even better :-) 
Thx! Marie

A pub crawl around templebar is always fun - I think fitsimons in templebar is having a prty. Also the woolshed on parnell st is good fun. Be prepared to spend a lot of money - pubs / taxis etc hike up prices for new yrs.

Re: New Years 2010....

New Years Eve in Dublin can be great! If you do the right thing.  
I am going to the Village on Wexford Street. The Amazing Few 3D Funhouse show. These guy's are a great live act and put on a really fun show. This one is in 3D with the glasses provided. Funzo, Gran casino and Bot heads on the line up as well. Cheap and fun... I got my tickets from ticket master but you can get them on the door I am sure. go early

The best gay spots are The George (bar and club -cover charge after 10pm) on Georges St, The Dragon on Georges St and the Front Lounge (bar) on Parliment St - all in the city centre and within walking distance of Temple Bar.

Hi All, 
FACEBOOK - Search and Like "Fitzsimons Temple Bar" 
I wanted to let you know that Fitzsimons Temple Bar will be hosting a New Years eve party @ Melaine (thanks for the mention). We have not issued tickets yet but if you contact me I can reserve them for you. �10 for ticket. We host live music every night in the bar, have 5 floors, rooftop terrace and nightclub, generally playing pop, chart dance and rock. 
check out youtube channel to get a feel for the atmosphere and music

Hey Aidan - Fitzsimons looks amazing - my husband and I are planning a trip to Ireland for New Years and we are from Colorado so we have no idea where to go! When are the tickets going on sale for New Years?

By Chris

Fitzimons is one of the most expensive clubs in Ireland, the ticket might be 10 euro but you won't get 2 drinks for that price in there. Unfortunately that is the same for most pubs in Dublin, especially on New Years in the Temple Bar area. If your visiting from abroad and you want to stay in Dublin then by all means go to Temple Bar but it will be full of tourists and will cost you an arm and a leg. If you want to travel down the country then go to Dingle,Co Kerry. It is a true reflection of Ireland, bands in the street, outdoor count down projected onto the side of a house and a big nightclub. Ennis, Co. Clare is another good spot. Galway is probably the best city to go out in Ireland, i've never been there for New Years but for other festivals I have been there and they really know how to do it right. Cork is also a good city to go out in, I have only been there once though and can't remember the names of any of the pubs I was in. The only problem with going to places like Dingle or Ennis is that they are at least an hour from the nearest motorway and if the winter is anything like last year then the roads will be very icey and dangerous to drive on. You can however get the train to Tralee and get a bus from there to Dingle. I am currently trying to convince my mates to go back to Dingle again for New Years, the only ones who have not committed yet are the ones who have not been there. I would spend every New Year down there if I could. Hope this helps.

Chris can you advise on where is best to go for age group 27 - 31. We were thinking also of Temple Bar but only because it has been recommended by people who have only been there... We would like to go somewhere really lively, with proper down to earth, good craic irish folk, it doesnt have to be cheap as chips but certainly dont want to exchange limbs for drinks!  
if you could email me a response that would be great 
Many thanks in advance

Gday All, im a 30yr old aussie chick coming to dublin for new years (first time to ireland) after a week in scotland for xmas (first time there too) anyway i was wondering if anyone had any luck finding anywhere to go in dublin or is it just the temple bar? Worse case scenario maybe all of us off here could meet up and make a party of our own where ever lol...

Hi all, Im a 27 year old Dublin girl so Ill try and advise you on where to go. If you are not staying in the city centre I wouldn't recommend going out there as its near impossible getting a taxi home when everythings over. I was in Tripod at the top of Harcourt st 2 years ago and only for my friend being in town working and gave me a lift home I would have had to walk home. Well Tripod has Japanese Popstars on there this NYE. So if you're into your dance music that might be the place for you. I wouldnt touch Temple Bar with a pole. Its just full of stags and hens most weekends and youll be hard up to find an Irish person there. The place with the most pubs and clubs is harcourt street with the infamous Copper Face Jacks. If you want to see Irish people you wont get more Irish than there. Theres also Dicey Reillys on Harcourt st that has the most amazing heated beer garden outside. D2 nightclub is also located on that street along with Krystle nightclub. You can cut from Harcourt street over to Wexford street where theres an abundance of clubs and pubs. Pubs - Solas, Flannerys(people who go to Copper Face Jacks usually start here)then Whelans which is more if you like indie music and rock then there's the Village. If you dont know where to go you're best off hitting these two streets cos theres plenty of choice.

Hey All, im a 28 year old Dublin guy and am currently looking at options for new years eve for me and a group of my friends. As someone who has spent many a new years eve in Dublin city centre I myself am looking at other options for us (maybe a NYE ball in a hotel not too far from Dublin which includes a night a accommodation) BUT that�s not to say I would not go to temple bar etc if it didn�t work out. Anyone who is coming to Ireland for the first time shouldn�t be put off by some of the comments above � yes it�s a little expensive, yes it can be hardwork getting in places but some nightclubs are great fun, just you need to know where to go. As you will most likely be staying in a hotel yourself in city centre the taxi�s (or lack there of) should not be an issue. 
Few recommendations � Alchemy Nightclub - temple bar (crowd can be a little young but recently renovated so not too much riff raff), Lillies Bordello � Grafton Street (bit older crowd and more classy so strict on the door, especially for lads) Fitzsimons � Grafton street (nice place but can be a bit too packed and hard to get a drink), The Morgan Bar � temple bar (great place, not the biggest though) 
I could go on, if you want more let me know id be happy to help! I am a fan of Dublin nightlife as you can probably tell. All of the above are nightclubs but there�s loads of bars which are great craic and open till 3.00am also
