5 Reasons For A Fancy Hen Party

Unsure whether to keep the hen party classy or traditional? When we think of classy hen parties we think of afternoon tea or a spa day. When we think of traditional hen parties we think Paint A Nude or pole dancing. It can difficult to please everyone and their taste when you begin planning. That is why we have decided to help. We love classy and fancy hen parties (clearly) and think that you can have just as much fun, if not more! If you are considering a more low key and relaxing hen party then you have to keep reading. Check out our 5 Reasons For A Fancy Hen Party that we are sure the bride-to-be will love!

Just as much fun

A fancy hen party can be just as much fun as a traditional style night out. When planning a classy hen party you have so many fantastic activities to choose from. You don’t have to party the night away or even drink if you wish. The main thing is that you are surrounded by family and friends on this special occasion. You can celebrate the bride-to-be in so many fun ways! Stick to the classic afternoon tea for some indulgent fun or go for something unique with a Hendricks Gin Tea Party. Enjoy the sophisticated yet quirky surroundings of Busker Browns in Galway while drinking gin from vintage tea cups. Perfect! Check out our activities section for a full list of these fab activities.

Great for all ages

Does the guest list include hens of all ages? Maybe you have invited the brides younger sister, mother or grandmother. We could be wrong, but they may not appreciate a Giant Swing and Ringo Ride activity followed by shots in a nightclub (although the Killary Adventure Centre is always a hit with hen parties!) Far play to Granny if we are wrong however! If this is the case then a classy hen party is exactly what you need. Spoil the ladies with a nice relaxing afternoon where you can enjoy one of our fab activities and celebrate the lady of the moment. Activities like chocolate making or a hair do class would be perfect! If you are interested in a fab hair do package, Vanilla Browns offer a spacious area with great hairstyle options for you and the hens to choose from. If you fancy indulging for the hen party with a chocolate making class you are in for a treat! With Lorge.ie hens of all ages will have the chance to create some tasty nibbles in a hands-on and fun class. Yum!

Try something new

A classy hen party is the perfect opportunity to try something new. We have some fab unique hen party activities available here at TheFancyHen.ie for you to choose from. Try your hand at fun activities like archery, a boat charter or a fascinator making class. Hullabaloo.ie offer some great fascinator making classes in a fun and relaxing environment where you can get creative while catching up with the hens. Perfect! How many people can say they tried archery before? Or celebrated like a VIP on a boat? You could even wear your new fascinator to the wedding. As everyone admires your beautiful creation you can happily tell them that you made it all yourself! Fab! You may even find a hidden talent and continue the craft after the hen party!


The big day is approaching and the nerves may be kicking in. We believe that the bride-to-be, bridesmaids and families all deserve a nice relaxing hen party. What better way to chill out than with a fab spa day activity or an enjoyable decoupage class? If you wish to be pampered for the day then The Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel will have the bride-to-be and the hens looking and feeling great! Have a natter and completely relax with these amazing activities. Watch and feel the nerves float away as you sit back and enjoy this special occasion. The best thing about a relaxing and classy hen party is the lack of stress – even down to the clothes. All you need during a spa day are swimming togs, a dressing gown and slippers….sounds heavenly! This is the perfect way to treat the bride-to-be before her big day!

Most importantly…..no sore head

You may be staying off the drink for this hen party or only having a few. This means no hangover ladies! Great! It also means that you will actually be able to remember how much fun you had the day before. A rare occasion during hen parties 😉 With no sore head to nurse you can really make the most of the hen party weekend. Rise early the next morning and continue the fun! Maybe you have time to hit the shops and treat yourself or head into town for some sightseeing. Look up what is on in the area you are staying in and head out to explore. Depending on the time of year you might come across some amazing festivals or markets. Soak up the local culture and pack as much as you can into your time away. You only get married once after all 😉
