One of the huge attractions of Carrick on Shannon is its waterfront location on the beautiful river Shannon. This lends itself to some amazing and bespoke hen party activities.

Enjoy a glass (or two) of champagne surrounded by the gentle waters whilst taking in the attractive Co. Leitrim countryside. This activity will appeal to any bride to be and is a great way to catch up with the girls and get the party started! If you prefer to keep your feet on dry land then an afternoon tea is a lovely elegant way to start the day.

It also provides you with the perfect accessory for the upcoming wedding! See for more details.
