If you are lucky enough to find a Spa in the perfect hotel - even better! People love to getaway. Bonus points if the hotel has a bar!

The Osprey Hotel and Spa

Whether it’s a semi-private area in the bar or a meeting space for activities, a spa day or a central location within walking distance of the great nightlife in Naas Town, the Osprey has it all. Set in an oasis of calm, an exquisite spa was designed by architect Hugh Wallace. Your visit promises an experience of complete relaxation and indulgence where they invite you to leave the outside world behind. Your choice of treatment will be complemented by beautiful aromas, soft music and warm and professional service as professional therapists pamper you with a truly restorative experience. You and the girls can also take advantage of the couples treatment room. You can retreat to the sauna or steam room, or work out in the fully equipped gym with the latest cardio and resistance equipment.

And, in their gorgeous restaurant Herald & Devoy, the Executive Head Chef's twist of imaginative genius is inspired using the freshest and best of ingredients. With menus tailored to suit all palettes and dietary requirements, all of their sauces and soups are gluten-free. All meat is sourced locally and of the highest quality. Enjoy a drink in Osprey Bar, from a perfectly chilled pint to an elaborate cocktail. Carvery lunch is available each day followed by an extensive bar menu. And, they have live music on Friday and Saturday nights! On warmer days, guests can relax in the outdoor courtyard.

Being with your best friends from school, siblings and closest work colleague is going to be a restorative experience in and of itself. How often are you all in the same place at the same time anymore!? Making memories is good for the soul. Make sure to capture these moments. We predict that 2020 will be all about retreating away from social media and making some real, in the moment - memories!

Westport House

Westport House provides a stunning backdrop for your classy, vintage hen party where you’ll go back in time and be treated like the ladies you are! Soak up the interiors, enjoy the story of this beautiful house, get crafty or have your own professional photoshoot while you sip bubbly and enjoy delicious treats!

The beauty of having your own professional photoshoot is that you will have tangible, gorgeous photos to frame. When you all visit somewhere with as much history as this place you will be compelled to dive into your own history too. Be prepared to share nostalgic stories until the wee hours. Keep the bubbly and the laughs flowing!

A vintage vibe is all the rage for hen parties in 2020. As sustainable fashion is becoming more and more popular, people are loving those vintage vibes. Maybe make the whole theme of the hen vintage! A vintage theme always goes down well. From the gals who love the bright colours and round shapes of the 60s to the ones who adore that 80s glam metal hair - there is something that everyone loves about retro. Decide on an era and strike a pose. This also makes deciding what to wear easier for your hen party V.I.Ps.

Whatever you plan for your 2020 hen party, a banging hen party destination like either of these places will really ground your forward-thinking theme. Having a traditional hen party with a few ideas like health, relaxation and sustainability in mind will really bring out the best the event. Spa Days and Vintage settings are hen party staples! You would be in for a treat that the whole gang can get on board with.
