Planning a hen party can be seriously tough work. Deciding where to go, what to do and who should be invited are all part of the big weekend. Lucky for you we've compiled a list of some of the best places around! We didn't want this to be a list of all the usual suspects, instead here are 4 Locations for a Hen Party with a Difference!


We can't recommend Limerick highly enough for a hen party! Limerick is one of the cities in Ireland that is often overlooked when planning a city hen. We think this is crazy because Limerick really does have it all! Of course, Limerick has all the usual activities like Paint a Nude, Cocktail Making Classes and Dance Classes, it also has Pizza Making Classes, A Climbing Wall, a Horse Carriage Tour and so much more! Not only has Limerick all of the best activities for your hen party it also has one of the best nightlife's we experienced, from The Old Quarter to cheese and wine in The Copper Rooms to cocktails in The Red Hen Bar to Pippa O'Connors favourite House Limerick, Limerick is just buzzing!


OK, we know Mullingar may not have been at the top of your list of places to go but hear us out! A town that produced Joe Dolan, Bressie and Niall Horan have to be a winner! Mullingar is a great spot for a hen party, just over an hour from Dublin, it is hopping with activities, bars and nightclubs to make sure the hen party is one you'll never forget! It's no surprise that Mullingar offers some of the best live music around in bars and nightclubs like Danny Byrnes, Daly's Pub, Ulysses, Yukon Bar and The Annebrook all topping the list! Mullingar is a unique spot for the hen but it will definitely be one that you will never forget!


Belfast is another city that can be overlooked by Cork and Dublin in particular. It has such an amazing history and culture and not to mention a cracking hen party scene! From Roller Disco to Segway's around The Titanic Quarter to a Fudge & Chocolate Tour there is something in Belfast for everyone! By going to Belfast for your hen party we think it feels like going abroad, with the Irish banter and without the big price tag which is another reason why we love it. Belfast is the biggest city in Northern Ireland and has a bustling nightlife scene too. What's not to LOVE!


Home of the Rose of Tralee festival Tralee is a brilliant spot for a hen party! Down in Kerry, Tralee is not the most easily accessed spot in the country but we definitely feel this is what gives it it's charm. From a classy Vintage Tea Party to Paintballing and everything in between, Tralee has it all! Tralee is another hen party spot that we think is undervalued and overlooked! Next time you're planning a hen be sure to check out Tralee! Tralee is especially gorgeous in the Summer months!

Let us know your experiences in these locations or about somewhere else you've gone ladies! We LOVE hearing about Locations for a Hen Party with a difference!
