Winter Hen Party Destinations
….with male strippers to keep you warm
The Hen Parties peak during the summer. But what about the cold and wet Irish Winters. Which hen party destinations will offer the best value for the winter hens. Let’s face it, when you are organising your hen party in the winter months, the outdoors are not exactly top priority. On the other hand, if your hen crew could have a high percentage of mountain climbers and adrenaline junkies. In this instance a hen party in the Irish winter wonderland is a God sent present. The male strippers of Hot Stuff Entertainment have seen both sides. They are active young men that appreciate the opportunity to visit the mountains of Kerry or the rough Atlantic sea shore. They can also take you for a tour of the warm and cosy spots that Hens in Ireland thoroughly enjoy.
Just in case you don’t feel like buying mountain climbing gear as yet… Here are some of our top picks for a relaxed wintry hen do.
Dublin, the capital of ‘henacious’ madness
You will definitely enjoy the lights and sights of the Dublin city and the satellite towns around it. You could play it safe and take advantage of the Tradfest that is happening in Temple Bar in the end of January. The whole of Temple Bar will be filled with live traditional Irish music. This offers every hen to experience the mother of all pub crawls. The fact that you can walk from the Grand Canal Dock to Temple Bar in less than 30 min, means that this mini adventure will treat your heels kindly. With a multitude of award winning restaurants and live acts for the wee hours of the morning at your fingertips, the capital tops easily the list of hen party destinations for this winter.
Galway, the City of Arts
Galway is a all year round hen party destination. While the active hens will enjoy the beaches and the mountains of Connemara even in the midst of a storm, Galway city is ideal for the lazy hens. You can take it easy and party with style in the G-Hotel or the Coyotes Bar. At the end of day a hen party is about one key thing. Making sure that the bride recharges her batteries for the big day. Thus the city of the Tribes with the burgeoning restaurant scene and art events to suit everybody, will make her smile all the way. Then you need to make sure to add a good bit of embarrassment and laughter. Obviously our male strippers will be delighted to help you. The Galway venues are open minded and will provide a space for that special stripogram you have been planning all along.
Limerick, and the West Coast of Clare
Lahinch is a top hen party destination for the mad hens that dare a wintry swim. But for those hens that would like to admire the wild waves from a distance the Armada Hotel provides an ideal setting. You could still tour the Burren with it’s megalithic structures that give you a feeling of an alien planet. Probably not everybody’s cup of tea. In that case Limerick and Ennis are a stone’s throw away. Limerick City will be able to handle any hen party. The city is home to at least 150 pubs so close to each other that you could do a pub crawl in the middle of a storm and not get wet. Ennis has a wild side to it. So if drinking is your game you will find plenty of players ready to rumble.
Killarney, forests and spas
Killarney, at the heart of the Ring of Kerry is one of the hen party destinations that never ceases to amaze the guests. The options that this town offers cover all aspects for a complete hen weekend away. First and foremost, there are plenty of Spa Treatment packages in all the 4 Star hotels of Killarney. If you are after a pampering weekend, Killarney will make sure that you leave the Kingdom rejuvenated and fresh as a daisy. On the other hand the nightlife will tempt you with the ‘craic agus ceol’ treatments.
Many a hen will try to go out just for the music and the atmosphere just to find themselves dancing their socks off in the likes McSorley’s. For those of you that want something different, The Shire Bar, themed after the Lord of the Rings, will definitely grab your attention. Obviously, you could explore the Ring of Kerry by booking one of the local tours. What’s stopping you from paying tribute to Kenmare or the Beara Peninsula? Maybe your appointment with the male strippers???
Carlingford, Lakes and Life Drawings
This northern jewel is one of the all year round hen party destinations. Carlingford does offer amazing natural pearls. The Carlingford Lough is almost wind free all year round due to the cover from the mountains. Simply put Carlingford guarantees a scotch free hen experience. You could easily book indoors activities in the likes of the Taffe’s Castle and enjoy the cosy atmosphere of this quaint little town. Life Drawings and Cocktail Masterclasses are always a good pick for a henny afternoon. You can also entertain your girlies in the comfort of your own rented accommodation with a stylish reception. And any such endeavors could not be complete without the tender touch of our Buff Butlers.
Hen party destinations for a unique hen weekend
Not that we advise our hens to run wild, but there are some destinations that not many hen organisers will suggest. Actually you need to bear in mind that most companies that sell hen party packages will go for locations that appeal to the average Joe…or Joanne. Sadly they leave out areas of amazing beauty and authentic Irish Hospitality. Our male strippers will gladly provide you with their top picks for a hen party out of a fairy tale.
Gweedore, Donegal : Hen Party as Gaelge
If you feel like brushing up your native tongue, and also have an amazing time in the Donegal beaches and mountains, then Gweedore is an ideal spot. It is close to Letterkenny and only a short drive from the famous Red Beach and Bunbeg. Both Errigal mountain with it’s snowy cap and the Glenveagh National Park are also close by. This small village offers a variety of options with regards to accommodation.
Not exactly the place where you can go on a mad bender, it is perfect for a snug and chill hen weekend.
You have definitely heard of the Powerscourt Estate and Gardens. And the Wicklow mountains. Not far from Dublin this area of exceptional natural beauty is best enjoyed during spring. At the same time, the chances of walking with your hens on a snow carpet are pretty high in the Wicklow Mountains. Especially this year, as Met Eireann predicts that cold weather will be hitting Ireland pretty soon. As hen party destination Wicklow offers unique accommodation, amazing food and
Finn Lough, Co Fermangh
One of the Hen Party destinations made for activities in one breathtaking location. With a marina, spa, cottages and the unique bubble domes, it can cover the basic needs of any high maintenance hen. The walks in the forest around the lake are a delight for the eyes. Halfway between Dublin and Belfast, you can easily forget the big city in this unreal little haven.
The Cavan Burren, Co Cavan
When you think of hen party destinations, Cavan is not top of the list. Which, in our opinion is a major mistake. As part of your hen weekend, you could have your traditional hen night out in Cavan town. The real treasures though are found in the Cavan Burren Park. Not as famous its cousin on the West Coast of Clare, it is worth exploring. The scenery is otherworldly, dotted with ancient megalithic tombs and home to the Marble Arch Caves. What one can describe as a once in a life time experience is just 2 hours away from Dublin.
And whatever you do…make sure not to tell the Bride 😉
