Cork has some of the best festivals in Ireland. If you are thinking about enjoying your hen party during one of these celebrations, you will be in for a treat. The most popular of all has to be the Cork Jazz Festival. Whether you are heading to a pub or simply just walking down the street, you will come across some fab acts. There are so many great free gigs but you can also head to locations like the stunning Cork Opera House to see acts like Imelda May who performed there this year. The Cork Midsummer Festival is always a huge hit too. This annual arts festival is such a treat ladies. Catch some new plays, the enjoyable Picnic In The Park and some spectacular shows at Corks museums. If you are looking a bit more culture and excitement, here it is.


The nightlife in Cork is electric. With a great collection of traditional and modern bars, lively nightclubs and more, you be spoiled for choice. Whether you want a low key afternoon listening to some trad bands or you want to hop on the dance floor and shake it, Cork is a great option. The Crane Lane is such a hopping spot that has regular bands in tow. Deep South has a great atmosphere complete with some amazing food – ideal! For a truly fancy experience, Soho is a fabulous option for some delicious cocktails and a classy atmosphere. Chill out on the rooftop with the girls for a really special experience.


Fancy a bit of shopping for the hen party? You will not be disappointed in Cork. With stores like Zara, Gap, Topshop and of course a nice big Penneys, you have lots to choose from. Head down Opera Lane and hit the stores before popping into Starbucks for a coffee break. Cork has some great shopping centres to escape to too if the rain begins! Merchants Quay is right in the city and has some fantastic restaurants to keep the hunger at bay. Mahon Point has some fab stores along with a handy food court and a top class cinema. It’s a favourite in TheFancyHen.ie office!


Cork is knocking it out of the park recently when it comes to food! With some gems like Greenes restaurant that has been around for a while to new locations like the stunning Rachel’s. Another one of our favourites has to be Electric on South Mall. This is a fabulous option for so many different reasons. Enjoy a pint at the downstairs bar, head upstairs for a beautifully crafted cocktail or head to the fish bar for a gorgeous seafood meal and some wine. Amazing!
