Beach Hen Party Ideas


Summer is just around the corner, so if you’re a beach loving bride to be it’s the perfect time to host a seaside themed hen do! The UK and Ireland offer many beautiful award winning beaches, or you could choose to jet off to far away shores and a hotter climate. Whether at home or away, your hens are bound to enjoy soaking up some rays on the sand or sipping some cocktails and having good craic by the sea!

Adventure by the Sea

There are a whole host of amazing activities to try by the ocean in Ireland, or further afield. If you and your hens are feeling adventurous, you could try snorkelling or coasteering on offer at Adventure West in Mayo, exploring the depths of the Atlantic where it meets the coast. Adventure swimming, rock climbing and cliff jumping are bound to give thrill seeking hens a run for their money! Many other water activities are also available across the country, such as surfing in Bundoran with Teapot Lane, or abseiling, kayaking and rock climbing available with Real Adventures in Galway. Your hens will be spoilt for choice!
Soaking up the Sun

Alternatively, if you’re looking for something more laid back, the beach is the perfect place to lay back and relax with your girls. Why not enjoy sunbathing and taking a dip in the ocean together, or go for a scenic Oceanside hike? Or if you’re feeling a little nostalgic by the seaside, your hens never too old for funfair rides and ice cream!
And would any beach day be complete without a few cocktails in the sun? A night out on the tiles could be just what your hens need after a long day soaking up the sunshine!


Beachy bohemian fashion is at the forefront for Summer 2016, with off the shoulder and crochet styles everywhere. For swimwear, statement one pieces along with slogan swimsuits are in this year, and block colour bikinis inspired by the Triangle brand are also huge. Cute cover ups are a must have, with colourful tropical style kimonos and playsuits ruling the roost.

If you’re planning to stick closer to home however, we all know the weather can be unpredictable at best! Make sure to pack your jeans and raincoat just in case, but if you do happen to hit on a spell of sunny weather, don’t be afraid to bust out the shorts and crop tops to soak up some sun. We need to make the most of it when it’s here of course! Just make sure to bring along plenty of sun cream with a good SPF and UVA rating – a bunch of burnt and peeling hens the day after won’t be a fun ending to your do!

Accessories are also essential to nail the beach style – cute sunglasses, comfy sandals and flower crowns are all adorable ways to dress up your outfit.

So whether you choose to fly to hotter climates or stick to the gorgeous Irish coastline, a beach party hen do is bound to please. You and your hens won’t forget the sun, sea and laughs in a hurry!
