Get all your closest friends together for your last big blow out before the ‘I do’s’, why not try something different and look at some alternative ideas for your hen/stag party. Here we have put together some ideas that you should try for your unique take on a pre-bridal party.  


Camp beneath the stars but do so in style and go glamping. All the luxuries of a hotel room but out in the woods beneath the stars. There are many locations all over Ireland which offer this luxury service for hen and stag parties. Things like this should be booked well in advance to avoid disappointment.  


Be on cloud nine for your hen or stag and fly high in the sky, flying over some of your favourite places. This is a very different take on a hen or stag party but it is definitely one you will never forget. This may not be ideal for someone who is afraid of heights but definitely for those you love a bit of an adrenaline rush. 

Rock climbing 

This is one perfect for those of you who would love an active hen party, this may sound like a bit of an unusual one but it is definitely one that will have you all laughing and maybe showing a little bit of your competitive streak.  

Afternoon tea  

Take a break from the activities and slow things down for a while before going again. Treat yourselves to some afternoon tea. Feel like royalty and enjoy some fabulous bites and why not wash it down with a refreshing glass of champers.  

Dolphin watching  

Take a boat trip out into the Irish Sea, and go spotting dolphins, this is a fun activity and will guarantee you loads of laughs and a very wavy weekend.  

Charity run  

This may sound bizarre but this could be quiet a very cool idea. There are so many fun runs and events all over Ireland, it may be nice to raise money and give back. Get muddy and take part in one of the many fun muck runs all over Ireland which can be such a laugh for you and your mates.  


This is quite a fun activity to do for your hen or stag, get a local photographer to come and set up a fun photoshoot, use props etc to really add to the pics and why not make it into a calendar or something when you are finished.
