  • Why Carrick On Shannon for a Hen Do?

    The Hen Party Capital of Ireland

    Carrick on Shannon is the Hen Party capital of Ireland; actually it’s probably the Hen Party capital of Europe. Why? Well mainly because the local people embraced the Hens and made it a really welcoming spot for the last knees up of freedom.

    Labelling Carrick as the Hen Capital of Ireland doesn’t mean it’s a huge metropolis; it’s anything but. It's a small town on the Shannon with a huge heart which makes it the ideal location for your hen party!

    The Full Package

    There is just loads and loads to do and see in Carrick on Shannon with all tastes catered for. Whether it’s a save the groom experience, an outdoor “muck and dirt” experience, paint balling, or a booze cruise on the river Shannon, this is the place to be.

    Plus, the best restaurants, pubs and clubs are so much fun. You can check out the pubs for yourselves here and see for yourself. We really can’t recommend it enough!

    The Craic

    Music is absolutely every in Carrick - in the pubs, hotels and even buskers on the streets. The craic is just mighty and the night life, electric. You won’t be the only hen (or stag) in town so fun is always guaranteed.

    Many a new romance came from a chance encounter in Carrick on Shannon, so don’t be surprised if you go back to celebrate another friend’s Hen before getting hitched!

  • FAQs - Hen Do Carrick on Shannon

    How long is booze cruise in Carrick on Shannon?

    The Booze Cruise is one of the best activities for hens in Carrick. Usually the sailings last around an hour and a half, with a DJ and Bar on board!

    Is Carrick on Shannon good for a hen night?

    Yes, it definitely lives up to its reputation as being the Hen Capital of Ireland. Pubs, clubs, restaurants, scenery and the craic. We can’t speak highly enough of the place!

    How do I get to Carrick on Shannon?

    Depending on how you’re travelling, Carrick is pretty accessible. Major roads include the N4 and N5 and the drive takes around 2 hours from Dublin. You could also travel by train too as Carrick On Shannon has its own station!

    Where Else Should I Consider for a Hen Night?

    Carrick On Shannon is located in a pretty nice spot as it’s close to everywhere! If you’re looking for more options up around this neck of the woods, Sligo is a fantastic option and one of the most overlooked spots in Ireland for a hen! Westport, Athlone and Mullingar are all just a stones throw away, with the latter having one of the best nightlife scenes in the country.

    Carrick's Crown as Ireland's Hen Party capital has been under siege in recent years, you’ve got the likes of Galway & Kilkenny pushing hard for that top spot. Kilkenny in particular is a fantastic spot and has always been popular with hen parties, its compact size means you won’t lose anyone and waste anytime getting around to all of your activities!

    I would highly recommend Laura and the team were excellent from start to finish, we had to make a few adjustments and changes along the way and they were always so helpful!

    Our group did a trip to the farm in Carrick on Shannon which everyone really enjoyed. Henparty organised it all for us, the accommodation was ideal and in a great location. I would definitely recommend to a friend!

     I used for my friends hen in Carrick on Shannon. I dealt with Katie throughout the booking. Katie went above and beyond to ensure everything went smoothly. Katie was so helpful for any queries I might of had. The online payment link takes the pain out of collecting money or transferring money.

    For a lot of us, this was our first time in Carrick on Shannon, and it exceeded our expectations. We stayed in a self catering accomodation, and location could not have been better, we were within walking distance of everything. Food in the Bush Hotel was amazing, and the Moon River Cruise was a big hit with all the ladies.

    Thank you Katie and for providing a fantastic service, I will definitely be recommending your service to friends. Best of luck and I wish you continued business success.
