Well, as always here at the Your Home From Home blog we are bringing you a rundown of some of the best events and exciting goings-on to take your mind off any possible post-Christmas hangover or January blues!

First up naturally are the New Year’s Eve celebrations themselves which are a nice pick-me-up before the long, cold slog of January really sets in. There are a whole range of events happening in the capital under the guise of the three-day Dublin New Year Festival including live music, a poetry slam and an “anti-art” class. On top of those there are parties at most bars around the city, plus special events such as a story telling musical experience at Christ Church Cathedral and the RTE Concert Orchestra’s NYE Gala Event at the National Concert Hall.

The New Year itself doesn’t have to fill one with dread however and should really be seen for what it is, a big new beginning and an opening of possibilities. We all love making resolutions which sound great but that we never end up putting into practice! Why not get stuck into the year with something interesting like checking out the community wares and home grown and made food at the Dublin Food Co-Op, which also has an alternate added theme to its market every Sunday.

For all the kids out there, young or old, who might be looking for some post-Christmas joy there’s no better adventure than a trip up to Ireland’s favourite fairground, Funderland. Set on 3.5 acres in Ballsbridge (a short walk from a lot of our apartments!) Funderland has been running for 40 years but this year has 5 brand new attractions brought in from Germany. It is also hosting Ireland’s only outdoor ice-skating rink so you have a whole day of family friendly fun waiting in the one place.

With so much going on in Dublin around the New Year it’s actually something everyone should be looking forward to! So why not shake off the post-Christmas slump by taking a trip up to the capital and checking out what’s on offer. To help you on your way we’re offering some fantastic discounts when you book online directly at Your Home From Home so you can have an intimate break or bring the whole family at a fraction of the cost of a hotel but with all the luxury!
