The five best places to be this New Year’s Eve

2018 is almost complete, and what a year it’s been. With ups, downs and plenty of amazing events, we can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store. But first, it calls for one last party to round the year off. Here is our pick of the top five places in Dublin that you have to check out this New Year’s Eve. Happy weekend from IMAGE!


The Masquerade Ball at the Hampton Hotel

If you want to add a bit of intrigue to your New Year’s celebrations, head to the plush Hampton Hotel in Donnybrook for their Masquerade Ball. Kicking off at 8:30pm, you’ll get glasses of prosecco on arrival, with canapés throughout the night to keep you going. Confetti canons, selfie mirrors and plenty of tunes will make this a night to remember. Tickets from €42.49.

 

New Year’s Festival across Dublin city

There’s no better atmosphere than Dublin city on New Year’s Eve, and the city-wide festival makes sure that you can enjoy it to the full. With a beautiful light show at the Custom’s House, plus a brilliant concert to ring in the new year (which we’ll tell you all about below), this is a truly sparkly way to enter 2019.

The 3Countdown Concert

Always ensured as one of the best NYE events of the year, the 3Countdown Concert in the 3Arena is sure to be great craic this NYE. Featuring great Irish names like Gavin James, Hudson Taylor, Wild Youth and Inhaler, you can dance the night away and into the new year. Tickets are still available from €29.90.

The Charleston NYE Party at the Clayton Hotel

Fan of the Great Gatsby? Then this Charleston party is right up your street. Vintage flapper dresses, feathers and plenty of prosecco will take you into 2019 in style. Kicking off at 7:30pm with a prosecco reception, followed by a 4 course Gala dinner, you’ll finish off the evening with a night at the casino and a DJ til late. Tickets from €79.

 

And if all else fails…

A night in front of the fire is always the best option. Happy New Year!
