In my opinion, the best New Year’s Eve celebrations are the ones that take out to somewhere new, away from the norm and away from huge crowds.

So Smithwick’s 10° West is a perfect opportunity to do just that. Smithwick’s is putting on an alternative celebration for those who are looking for something different to do with their New Year’s Eve and it involves spending time on the beautiful Achill Island in Mayo.

Homebeat has curated a lineup of music that includes our own Lumo Club, Daithi, Talos, Stomptown Brass and Sing Along Social by night in the heated Keel tent. There will also be acoustic and pop-up performances in the pubs too.

By day, there is yoga, cycling and hiking hosted by Pure Magic.

Tickets are priced from €45 which includes two daytime activities, access to the Keel tent and a complimentary pint of Smithwick’s. Accommodation is separate to the ticket fee but B&Bs, holiday homes, guesthouses and hotels are available.
