Stag & Hen Parties

Coming to Dublin for your Stag or Hen Party!

It’s your last night of freedom and traditionally, as you know, you are required to go absolutely wild and crazy with your nearest and dearest friends (same sex of course!).  Dublin is one of the most popular locations for stag parties and hen nights because of its great atmosphere, pulsating nightlife, and friendly locals.  If you decide to come here for you stag or hen night then there are some things that you will need to know.

  Firstly, not all hotels are wiling to cater for stag nights and hen parties in Dublin.  It is imperative that you inform the hotel before you travel that you will be part of a stag/hen group, otherwise they could decide to “evict” your whole group based on the hotel’s “no stag/hen policy”.  Of course, this is not the case with all hotels and there are many fine hotels and guest houses that are more than willing and definitely able to cater for such groups.  Indeed there are many hotels that have formed partnerships with some of Dublin’s top bars and clubs to ensure that their groups will be warmly welcomed and accommodated as much as possible.  For a list of hotels that welcome stag/hen parties and for some helpful advice on choosing the right accommodation, you can click on and consult the relevant section on Hen Parties and Stag nights.

   Once you decide that you would like your hen night or bachelor party in Dublin you can travel by either airplane or boat.  There are a number of airports that offer flights to and from Dublin including, Gatwick, Heathrow, Stansted, Bristol, Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester and many more (check with your local Airport).  There is also a daily ferry to Dublin from Holyhead, North Wales, which can act as a lively extension to your weekend with a bar, restaurant, entertainment and more.

   Once in Dublin there are a number of ways in which you can entertain yourselves!  Day time activities around Dublin include golf, go-karting, paint ball, rally driving, horse racing and much more.  When the sun goes down you will be spoilt for choice with Dublin’s extensive selection of fine international restaurants.  Again, it would be preferable to book in advance and mention the stag/hen party to avoid disappointment on the night.  

There are masses of top bars and clubs in Dublin and if you’re on a stag night, there is one particular area that will be a must visit.  Temple Bar is situated in the heart of Dublin city and can easily be called the nerve centre of Dublin’s party scene.  Trendy restaurants, traditional bars, and lively night clubs all add to the unique and most welcoming atmosphere of Temple Bar, an amalgamation of all that Dublin has to offer!  So book your stag night or hen party in Dublin today, for a last night of freedom that you’ll never forget!
