Who are we kidding ladies? The summer is nearly over, we’re into August and the realization that we won’t be heading to the beach or having those after-work drinks & BBQ’s outside for another 9 months is starting to set in.
So, our advice to combat the sadness that comes with the summer ending. Book an incredible Hen Party weekend away with your girls and really let your hair down! Regardless of where you’re thinking of going there are tons of fantastic accommodation options, bars and clubs to send off a best friend in style.
Here are just a few of our top picks!
Carrick on Shannon is always a firm favourite with our Hens. You’re always in for a great night in Carrick. But, when it’s time to relax, re-charge and re-fuel the Aisleigh guesthouse is a fantastic choice with excellent food and homely atmosphere. They’ll be sure to help you and the girls have a fantastic Hen Party weekend and we’re sure they’ll help ease any sore heads from one to many cocktails.
A Galway Hen Party is never a bad decision in our opinion ladies. So, if you decide to spend your Hen Party weekend with the Tribesmen, do it in style and stay at the luxurious four-star Clayton Hotel. Stunning and relaxing suites await with fun cocktail classes for the bride-to-be and her hens. And when it’s time to hit the dancefloor, you’re only a short walk from many of Galway’s top nightlife spots.
Staying in Galway ladies and if you’re still trying to decide what unique Hen Party activity. Then we highly recommend the Connemara Pub Tour. This fantastic tour allows Hens to visit the wonderfully scenic and hospitable area that Connemara while enjoying a few drinks and meeting the locals.
We can’t speak highly of this tour that not only gives you tons of fantastic photo ops with your Hens but also gets the party started with a few drinks in some very unique locations!
Another fantastic option for a wild Hen Party weekend is, of course, the fantastic Kilkenny City. Once you’ve booked your Kilkenny Hen you’ll be counting down the days until you meet up with your girls for an unforgettable weekend.

There is plenty of free car parking, a fantastic food menu, cocktail classes, and for the night owls in the group, a resident’s bar!
For the Hen that’s looking for a luxurious weekend, to enjoy the finer things in life and simply experience a Zen Hen. Then a trip to Ballygarry House is a must for your Hen and is situated at the foot of the Kerry Mountains and complimented by natural elements and beautifully landscaped gardens.
