SOME will be jet-setting across the globe, but many of Ireland's leading celebrities will be opting to spend New Year's Eve at home.
For broadcaster Ryan Tubridy, it'll be about avoiding the crowds. "Thankfully my sister Rachel has offered to hold something at hers, so it'll be homely chats, a few jars with family and friends, with no pressure," he said.
New Year's is also a family celebration for 'Frontline' presenter Pat Kenny. "I used to like going out but I got more and more tired of people getting sick around me. This time we're taking it easy, spending time with the family," he commented.
Simon Delaney was working last year at the National Concert Hall, but the actor is hoping to be with his family at midnight after an exhausting film schedule in recent months.
"I'll stay home because I'm knackered," quipped the Bachelor's Walk star.
Lottie Ryan, the daughter of late DJ Gerry Ryan, says she plans on joining up with those close to her: "I love New Year's Eve. I'm one of those people who likes to write out a list of goals I'd like to achieve."
For mother-to-be Amy Huberman, below, the occasion will be spent relaxing at home. The actress and her husband Brian O'Driscoll are rumoured to be "chilling out" with friends.
And while her model peers hit the nightclubs, Rosanna Davison will spend New Year's on the beach in Mauritius with her parents, siblings and long-term boyfriend Wesley Quirke.
