Be a part of Procession of Light
Just before Three Countdown Concert, Dublin City comes alive with the procession of light. Building on last year’s procession, Dublin invites you to experience and participate in one of the most magical processions in the world. Don’t forget that a number of lanterns are available for the public to partake in this procession, with all donations going towards Focus Ireland that helps prevent homelessness in Ireland. This too is celebrated on New Year Eve in Dublin Ireland.
Chance to be a world record holder
At the end of the Procession of Light, Dublin City is offering each and everybody an opportunity to become a world record holder by joining the world’s largest Bodhrán (Celtic Drum) session. The city is expecting well over a thousand people to join this attempt, so if you want to take part make sure you register your interest. You can register here.
Go for some culture at the Spoken Word Festival
Scheduled for all three days of Dublin’s New Years Festival, the Spoken Word Festival incorporates an eclectic line-up of upcoming and established artists, from poets to hip-hop artists, musicians and comedians.
Follow Dublin’s music trail
If music is your passion, head to the Ruby Sessions at Smock Alley Theatre. Just like previous years, the Ruby Sessions artists are kept top secret but there have been whispers already creeping across the city of a famous indie musician. Previous year’s surprise guests have been Ed Sheeran, Paulo Nutini, Mumford & Sons and Damien Rice.
You can be part of the Light Show during New Year’s Eve. Starting around 5 pm and finishing at 12 am on December 31st, Luminosity is a 3D light show that brings some of Dublin’s most iconic buildings to life.
