Dublin is one of the most common European destinations for a hen do. But why? It’s not a sun trap, you’re not surrounded by beautiful beaches, what’s so special about a Dublin Hen Do? To be honest – pretty much everything. Deemed one of Europe’s friendliest cities, Dublin has got everything any hen do needs in order to have a party that you will remember for the rest of your lives (even if the bits at the end of the night are slightly blurry!)
The city is hugely welcoming to groups and has a friendly atmosphere the likes of which you wouldn’t encounter in other large cities. Once you add that to the sheer amount of things to do and bars to visit, then it’s obvious why Dublin Hen Dos are some of our most popular European options year after year.
This city has plenty of places to stay. Whatever the requirements for your Dublin Hen Do may be, we can ensure you have some accommodation that is perfectly tailored to fit. If you are looking to keep your budget down, then we can arrange some basic hotels or Guest Houses. Alternatively, if you want to spend a bit more and live the life of luxury on your Dublin Hen Do, we’ve got plenty of options there, including some absolutely amazing top-tier hotels, offering you the sort of relaxation you can only dream of on a day to day basis.
If you fancy something more than a hotel – an accommodation that gives you a bit of communal space and the chance to relax with the girls outside of each others bedrooms, why not look at some of the luxurious apartment options that the city can provide? After all, you only throw a Dublin Hen Do once, why wouldn’t you want to embrace all the great aspects that you can?
Getting to Dublin from the mainland UK is easy. Eight airports around the country currently offer direct flights, and since these take a maximum of an hour and a half, and since Dublin airport is less than half an hour from the city centre, you’ll find your total travel time is just a couple of hours, which leaves more time for drinking and entertaining yourselves once you are there.
With buses and trams being very well maintained and regular, you’ll find that getting around in Dublin is an absolute cinch. No matter where you are going in the city, it’ll be easy to get to and mean that you have no hassle to deal with on your Dublin Hen Do when it comes to transport.
Dublin is an absolute goldmine when it comes to activities that will keep you and the girls entertained all day and all night. One of the most popular Dublin Hen Do activities of all is, of course, Cocktail making. This traditional and very popular activity for all hen dos takes place right in the middle of Dublin’s famous Temple bar area, which really adds to the experience.
Other popular options include Dance Classes, Life Drawing, Pamper days and even Foreplay lessons (to name but a few). In other words, whatever you want to get up to on your Dublin Hen Do, it’s easy to arrange and will be an absolute blast for you and the girls.
If you are a group who enjoys either beer or whiskey, then a trip to Dublin wouldn’t be complete without a visit to either the Guiness Brewery or the Jamesons Distillery – both of which are eye opening and entertaining visits which also give you the chance to enjoy a drink or three. The last hugely popular Dublin Hen Do activity I wanted to mention was a day at the races, especially if you are going for a posher style of hen do, because what’s posher than getting your big hats on and watching some horse racing with a glass of bubbly in hand?
At night you can traverse your way through one of the most famous areas of nightlife in the world – Temple Bar. There are pubs that you can sip a drink in, bars in which you can try some of the most astounding cocktails you’ve ever tasted, and nightclubs that will keep you dancing until the sun comes up. No matter what your ideal bar may be, Temple Bar will be able to provide a perfect option for your Dublin Hen Do.
If you fancy something a bit more pre-planned for the evening, you can either arrange a guided bar crawl, where a local guide will show you the best places to drink and get you some great drinks deals on the way – or if you want to sit down and relax one evening, why not visit the Cabaret? A traditional Dublin Hen Do activity, this will give you the chance to rest your feet, enjoy a drink, and soak in some eye candy as some of the hottest men you’ve ever seen dance for your entertainment.
In short, Dublin’s reputation for being one of the best places in the world to have any kind of party is completely deserved – and if you are arranging a hen do for someone special, why wouldn’t you want to visit one of the best places in the world for your Dublin Hen Do?
