The UK has really become the norm for a lot of Irish hens in the last few years. Heading off for a hen party in the UK is more affordable than ever before! More often then not having a hen in the UK can be cheaper if not the same price then in Ireland. To help you decide on the best place for your Hen Party in the UK we've broken down a few of our favourite locations.


Edinburgh is a location that we are constantly asked for ladies. Not only has it become a go-to spot for hen parties but it's also a really popular spot for weekends away. As Scotland's capital Edinburgh has so much to offer hen parties.
With all the usual activities like cocktail making and dance classes as well as a few unique ones too, like the Harry Potter Tour! (JK Rowling wrote the popular series here so it's a hotspot for diehard fans!) Edinburgh is really a stunning location with the Edinburgh Castle overlooking the gorgeous city and lighting up the skyline at night!


We cannot recommend Liverpool highly enough for hen parties! Liverpool is easily accessed from anywhere in Ireland. With flights from Cork, Shannon and Dublin there's no reason why you can't go to Liverpool. Liverpool has a huge range of activities from The Beatles Tours to Boozy Mini Golf and so much more!
The nightlife in Liverpool is one that you won't forget in a hurry. On top of the usual pubs and clubs, Liverpool is the home of loads of cocktail bars! Just what you need for the hen party!


With shows like Geordie Shore coming out in recent years, it's easy to see how Newcastle has been labelled as a party city! If you are looking for a cracking night out on the town you can't really do much better than Newcastle! On top of all that though Newcastle is a stunning city with a lot of culture. There is a range of different museums, parks and theatres that are must-sees when you head to Newcastle upon Tyne!


Manchester has always been a popular spot for hen parties and that doesn't look like it's going to change anytime soon! The gorgeous Manchester offers so much to hen parties. From the huge range of activities to all the brilliant spots for a few drinks Manchester is a winning spot for your hen party! Manchester is another spot that's easily accessed from all over Ireland.


The only Welsh location on our list Cardiff is one of our most popular spots in the UK for a hen party! Cardiff is the capital of Wales and its largest city. It's also known as a go-to spot for a night out so it's no surprise that hens fall in love with it every time they go! Nightclubs like Tiger Tiger and Revolution are definitely the places to be in Cardiff! Like all the other locations on our list though Cardiff isn't just about the nightlife it's also one of the most beautiful cities in the UK!
No matter where you decide to go for your hen party in the UK you are guaranteed a fab time!
