Dublin is an excellent choice for a stag or hen party. If you’re looking for activities ranging from pub crawls to obstacle courses, Dublin has it all. Group accommodation in Dublin has never been easier to book or better value than our accommodation on the DCU Campus. Located on the edge of Dublin city, we offer flexible, affordable accommodation all year round, ideal for groups. Here are some of the highlights of holding your stag or hen party in Dublin.
1. Drink and be merry: Dublin is best for pub-based activities
If you love the idea of catching up with friends over a few drinks, Dublin has some of the best pubs, bars, and nightclubs in the country.
Whether you love the idea of cocktails & caviar or pints & burgers, there is a pub in Dublin to suit your group. Head into the city centre and enjoy a pub crawl in Temple Bar where you’ll find live music in every second pub, great bar food menus and a fantastic atmosphere of both locals and visitors. For something extra special, you can book a whiskey tour and tasting in Teelings or Jameson distilleries or a cocktail-making class. It’s a short bus or taxi journey to the centre of the city from DCU rooms.
2. Enjoy an active weekend
Before things get too messy, organise a group activity for your stag or hen party. Fulfill your need for speed with a trip to Kart City, near Dublin Airport, the home of outdoor karting in Dublin. Race your teammates competing for a podium finish and bragging rights for the whole weekend.
To get your own back head to The Mill in The Liberties area of Dublin for an afternoon of paintballing, nerf, archery tag or other airsoft games. It’s a stone’s throw from the Guinness Storehouse too – if that’s on your Dublin itinerary.
3. Check out Pedal Tours of Dublin
Dublin Pedal Tours have become a huge hit for stag and hen parties. You’re sure to have seen them passing you on city streets, blaring music and holding 16 delighted cyclists enjoying Dublin from a different perspective. The guides are responsible for directing, steering, and motivating your group and if you’re lucky they might stop at a pub for a quick refresh. Book a pedal tour for an afternoon you won’t forget.
4. Break free from an Escape Room
Escape rooms are a great way to build team spirit and get those minds working. The idea is to work together to solve the clues and escape the room within the time given. It’s a great ice breaker or a way to bring a group together. Try Incognito , one of the top-rated escape rooms in Dublin and they can accommodate large or small groups.
