Galway Hen Parties

By: claire

“Location, location, location”. That’s what they say ladies when it comes to organising the hen party. Choosing the right location is a key factor to having a great hen party experience! For some of you, a countryside retreat or a luxury spa break may appeal. Or, for others the excitement and energy of a city break is the way to go, but what about those of you that would like both? Well then girls why not consider Galway hen parties?

From the beautiful scenery of the Connemara coastline to the vibrant and eclectic buzz of Galway city. You really will be spoilt for choice with Galway hen parties! It really is in our opinion the ultimate hen party destination. So, why do we like Galway hen parties so much, I hear you ask? No doubt we could wax lyrical all day about the reasons why, but we know you bridesmaids are busy ladies so here it is in a few short pointers!!

Location: Galway is an ideal hen party location as it is easily accessible from all parts of the country. Being approximately only a 3 hour drive from Cork and 2 hours from Dublin. It also has great train links for those of you that don’t fancy the drive! In fact for the jet setters out there Galway even has its own airport for domestic flights and commutes to and from the UK. No delays with security there! The Connemara coastline is one of the most impressive in the country. The scenery and country side walks are fantastic! Galway city itself is a lovely compact city. Everything is literally on your doorstep, making most of your hen party activities only a short stroll away! Leading us nicely onto…

Activities: There is no shortage of classy activities for Galway hen parties! Enjoy a luxury spa treatment in the calm of the countryside or go wild hill walking. Or, take part in some organised activities at an adventure centre! If the bride to be is a water baby then organise a surf lesson or snorkelling! For those hens that prefer something less strenuous then why not cruise the river Corrib on a chartered boat like The Corrib Princess. Nothing like taking in the scenery with a glass of bubbly in your hand!!

For all you city slickers, why not soak up the atmosphere of Galway city with a girlie lunch, followed by a master class in cocktail making or a make over and photo shoot? It’s a great way to get the party started! If shopping and dinner appeals to your hen party group then you will not be disappointed with Galway hen parties. The shopping in Galway city is phenomenal as is the choice of restaurants and bars! Or, if you know the girls are up for a giggle and given that Galway is a city that is renowned for its arts and culture then it would just be bad manners not to take part in the infamous “Paint-a-nude”!
