New Year's Eve Celebrations

"...Dingle is a delight to visit any time of year, and on NYE’s visitors and revellers can delight in a huge celebration on the streets of Dingle to welcome in the New Year....It begins with a spectacular fireworks display on Dingle Bay at 10pm. Then make your way into town following the spectacular marching band and ring in the New Year with thousands of people on Main Street..."

We're delighted to be included in this list of the best places to be on New Years Eve in Ireland (Read the full article here) 🌟🌟🎉🎉


The fireworks in Dingle town are truly spectacular, so beautifully reflected across the bay,  but then you have a choice of places to be when the bells strike midnight, staying in Dingle town, or joining the festivities in villages across the peninsula, from Castlegregory to Annascaul. 🌟🌟🎉🎉


Oíche Chinn Bliana/New Years Eve



11.45pm: Assemble at the old bridge in Annascaul Village. Count down to midnight, then follow the bell ringer and pipers on our walk up and down the village to give an enormous Annascaul welcome in the New Year. Bring your Country, county, Parish or Club flags! All welcome.


10pm: Spectacular Fireworks by Dingle Marina

11.30pm: The Dingle Fife and Drum Band, starting from outside O'Flaherty's Pub, parade the streets of Dingle, leading to the crossroads and bridge at the bottom of Main Street.
