How weird is it that we are nearly in 2018! It's pretty scary. It's nearly time to pack up all those Christmas decorations for another year and settle into the idea that we're headed into the new year! Freaky. For many of us, Christmas was more than mince pies and having one too many with the girls. Christmas may have been when you and your other half decided to tie the knot or when one of your friends got engaged! With every engagement comes the prospect of the best hen party ever! So to help all you gorgeous ladies out we've come up with the best locations for your 2018 hen party.


Limerick is always one of our top hen party locations. There really is nothing you can't LOVE about it. If the group want a city hen party but don't want one of the big ones like Dublin or Cork, Limerick could be the perfect spot for you. Limerick has everything you could want from a hen party. Brilliant activities, amazing restaurants and of course a cracking nightlife. Plus you're nearly sure to run into a few rugby hunks along the way...Winning!


Galway is another city hen party location that is perfect for a group that don't want the big ones like Cork or Dublin! Similar to Limerick Galway has brilliant activities for a hen party plus the added benefit of being on the coast so all those water sport activities too! Galway is renowned for its fine food and nightlife and really is just a brilliant spot for a hen party. Whether you decide to go to a quiet local in the middle of the city or a bustling nightclub Galway has it all for every bride to be!


Dungarvan was one of the newest hen party locations to watch in 2017! So it's no surprise that it's a must for every bride to be to consider for their 2018 hen. If you've ever been to Dungarvan you'll understand how wonderful the atmosphere is down there and if you haven't it's time to get your butt to this sunny south East town! Dungarvan ticks all the boxes in being a top hen party destination including all the usual and some unique activities, amazing food and a brilliant nightlife to go along with it.


We don't think we could do a list of locations for your 2018 hen party without including the gorgeous Kilkenny! Kilkenny has long been one of the go-to spots for a hen party and that's definitely not changing anytime soon! This tiny city nestled in the South East is packed full of life. Not only will you find stunning boutiques there but you'll be amazed at the amount of go to pubs there are in this small city! From Matt the Millers to Langtons to The Left Bank and everything else in between there's plenty of options. Plus there are always a few stag parties floating around as well which makes it that little bit more fun!


When people think of a hen party on the island of Ireland they too often overlook the stunning Belfast! Belfast is steeped in a rich history that makes it such a wonderful place to visit for a hen. Of course, Belfast has all the usual things you could wish for on your hen party but it also has so much more. A definite must to consider for your 2018 hen party ladies!
