Planning a Hen Party?

Where should I go for a Hen Party?

This ladies is the ultimate question! There are many factors to consider, the bride’s preferences and taste, your budget and what you imagine as the perfect hen party weekend for your closest friends.

When picking the hen party destination, distance is always a factor. As a rule of thumb, we recommend somewhere within 90 minutes, and accessible to all the group.

Below we have outlined a couple of options, but please check out our website for the wide array of destinations we  offer – we have something to suit all tastes and budgets.  WHERE SHOULD I GO FOR A HEN PARTY- below we help you narrow down the options so you can find the perfect hen party destination for YOUR Hen as everyone is different!

Is your bride a party animal?

If you have a party animal Bride to be all of the large towns and cities in Ireland come to mind Galway, Carrick on Shannon, Athlone, Westport, Kilkenny or Limerick to name a few.

Most towns in Ireland offer you a fun filled Saturday night, so you really can’t go wrong!

Is your Bride Outdoorsy?

For the bride with a love of the outdoors Glamping is a winner every time. Our Glamping in Carrick on Shannon offers comfortable glamping units, shepherds huts and Eco pods with beds electricity and heaters.

You are not stuck there though we also provide transport into Carrick town on Saturday night, so you experience the best of both worlds.

If Carrick is too far we also offer Glamping on a private site in Athlone town – With Eco Pods, Private living area with kitchen and a big red bus it is the great outdoors meets civilisation. 

Would your bride prefer something more ‘high end’?

Nothing in Ireland comes close to the superb houses of Tranquility Ireland. They have 6 houses ranging from a rebuilt church to a high end Villa. 

Think Private Chefs, Luxurious surroundings and views to die for. 

Would your bride like a theme?

When it comes to themes the options are endless and we can offer something to suit most.

Its important to consider this when deciding on the hen party Location as some locations might be better suited to your theme then another. 

For example, if the bride enjoys country music, there is a western themed hen party package in Athlone complete with outdoor covered saloon and western themed hen party activity.

If your Bride wants to do something like a Father Ted Themed Hen Party we own and run the Finding Ted the Father Ted Experience and Mrs Doyle and Her Grannies activities – these can take place in any town in Ireland so you are not restricted on Locations if this is the theme she wants. 

Is your bride budget conscious?

If you are budget conscious its good to know that large towns such as Galway and Kilkenny are generally dearer than smaller towns such as Athlone or Carrick on Shannon. We have plenty of value package options, including the Cruise package in Athlone or Carrick on Shannon. Either destination includes your accommodation, meal, reserved areas plus Cruise on the River Shannon, with prices starting from under €100pps.

Glamping in Carrick on Shannon is also a great value option at just €135pp for a full all inclusive 2 night weekend package. 

Would your bride like a country retreat?

If its a country retreat hen party weekend you are after then This Bishopstown House is ideal.

Located in the heart of the countryside in Westmeath it is perfect for a weekend of hen party fun in the rural location of Moate, Westmeath.  

Is your bride more reserved?

Some brides just want a quiet night away, without the bright lights and partying, If this is the case it really doesn’t matter where you go. We can of course tailor an option to suit this sort of group – you may consider one of our self-catering houses or apartments where you can bring your own food and drinks, or we can organise an on-site caterer.

You could do a quiet Friday with a pyjama party and face masks, and on Saturday enjoy an activity followed by a leisurely dinner on site, with some games to set the mood.

But please remember, as we always say once the group is together making memories the destination really doesn’t matter – so don’t sweat the small stuff! Just make your decision and let us do the rest!

Happy Planning!
