5 Fun New Year’s Eve Events To Book

?10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, HAPPY NEW YEAR?! Ah yes, the countdown, that all important moment when you finally get to kiss the person of your dreams, grab your bestie for a big squeeze or awkwardly look around wondering who to nab! Trying to decide where to ring in 2016? Here’re some parties worth getting tickets for:

1 New Year’s Gala Ball

Screen shot 2015-12-03 at 12.41.06

You know that dress hanging in the wardrobe waiting for that ‘special outing?? Here’s your chance to shine some disco lights on it. Swagger into Doubletree by Hilton, Dublin for a four-course gala dinner washed down with wine, before a sparkling after-dinner toast and The Bently Boys and a DJ to keep ya shakin? it until late. Tickets €85.

2 The Haddington

If dancing until dawn in a ball gown isn’t quite your fort?, and bopping to Abba beats in apr’s ski attire is, then note Dun Laoghaire’s Oliveto at The Haddington. With a choice of rooms to mingle in, that midnight magic may just happen, especially with magician Rua meandering through the crowd. Nibble on incredible Italian-inspired food in between sips of prosecco with sea views to savour on the side. Tickets €75.

3 Dunboyne Castle

PicMonkey Collage

Flapping and tapping the night away Gatsby-style is possible in Meath at?Dunboyne Castle‘s vintage, 1920’s themed ‘do?. It starts with a lavish dinner in The Ivy followed by a post-dinner party in the glamorous Sadlier Bar with a live band and cocktails galore. When the need to be horizontal occurs, just take the elevator to a sumptuous bedroom. Tickets €170 (including dinner, B&B).

4 Hayfield Manor

Screen shot 2015-12-03 at 16.48.01

Cork-popping is also guaranteed in, well, Cork at the Hayfield Manor‘s gala event. This is a sophisticated affair so dress-up for a champagne and canap? reception but leave room for the seven-course gourmet meal paired with wine. If that doesn’t satisfy your hunger, the post-dinner artisan cheese and port reception might. Raise a glass of bubbly at midnight while enjoying elegant entertainment. Tickets €199.

5 Drive-in Movies

Screen shot 2015-12-07 at 10.56.42

Or just stay casual and park-up at Tattersalls Country House?with a blanket and chomp on popcorn in the comfort of your car. With a range of films showing, it’s the ideal post-Christmas family outing or date night destination. Sick of turkey? Feast on Eddie Rockets or nosh on sweet treats – they are all available on site! Tickets €20 per car before December 18.
