Quirky Hen Party Activities in Ireland


For the Farmer’s Wife-To-Be

If the bride-to-be is marrying a farming groom, Causey Farm in County Meath is the ideal spot for a bit of farmer’s wife training! From milking cows to jumping through the bog, Causey Farm will prepare even the most pampered princess for agricultural life! Start off you day the way any farmer worth their salt does: by making sure your animals are fed and watered. Once you’ve fed the cows, you’ll need to milk them so that you’ll have something to drink with the traditional Irish soda bread you’ll be baking. You and the girls are guaranteed to have a laugh livi
ng the simple life on this farm. 

The fun doesn’t end when you’ve finished helping out with the animals; the craic really starts when you and your girlies learn to play the bodhrán drum and have a bit of a dance-a-long at the farmhouse before hopping on the tractor to a bog and splashing around in a hilarious game of “bog-jumping”. If you’re still feeling competitive after Olympic-standard bog-jumping, you and your hens can divide into opposing teams and see which side can make the longest rope from straw or beat the Causey Farm record for most hens jumping rope at the same time.

Leave a memory of your time at the farm by adding to the wall mural so that your hen party becomes part of the surroundings even after the big day. All the excitement is sure to tire you and the girls out but don’t worry- you can return to the farm-house for a cup of tea and a slice of the brown bread you made earlier to keep you going! Packages are also available which include lunch and snacks for you and the hens- you’ll need to keep up your strength to pull your weight on the farm! Plenty of fun is guaranteed for the more agricultural bride-to-be at this brilliant hen activity!

For the Downton Abbey Fanatic

If you’re a bride-to-be who thinks they could give Lady Crawley a run for her money, Victorian Escapade in Mullingar can play the role of Downton Abbey for your perfect hen party. You and your girls will travel back in time to the Victorian era, playing both servant and mistress to get a taste of life in a stately home.

Firstly, you and your hens will dress as servants and undertake the ‘chores’ for the day including the usual suspects such as chamber pot races and a laundry challenge, of course! Then you’ll get the opportunity to climb the social ladder faster than anyone in history by becoming the ladies of the manor within minutes of being the help! Upgrade to luxury gowns with swirling petticoats.

In the drawing room, parlour games and dancing await before a photo shoot of you and your girls in your finest attire! You and your eligible bachelorettes can treat yourselves to a lavish afternoon tea of delicately cut sandwiches, cakes and buns serve, of course, by the butler- no need for you ladies to get up! Sip on tea or coffee from the finest of china cups while seeing who can do the best Maggie Smith impression. This fun day out is sure to keep both Downton fans and Downton critics alike entertained!

For the Tea Addict

If your dream tea party looks like a (slightly) less crazy version of the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party from Alice in Wonderland, Social Bee Dublin has exactly what you’re looking for. Have all your girls round for a tea party with all the trimmings delivered to your door (or wherever else you need them to be).

Social Bee is a completely mobile afternoon tea service which means that no matter where you are, you can have your dream tea party without rearranging plans or trying to schedule it in amid other hen party plans. You can choose to have a vintage tea party or personalise your tea party to whatever you want for your special day; whether it’s the Roaring 20’s or the Mad Hatter and co or even something completely different.

Don’t worry about a thing as you sit back and relax while your server keeps you and your hens plates and cups fully topped up; Social Bee even play records in the background so you don’t have to worry about ambiance- it all comes to you! We all know a stressed out bride-to-be wants nothing more than to sit back and let somebody else take the reins! If a spread of delicious homemade treats, sandwiches, bubbly and fine teas sounds right up your street, then you need Social Bee at your hen party!

For the Selfie Queen

For the bride-to-be who can’t stop taking pictures, Boudoir Girls will provide the perfect hen activity for you! You can put down the camera (for a change) and allow somebody else to take the pictures; Boudoir Girls Galway specialises in fun photoshoot parties for you and your girls.

Ideal as a pre-night on the town activity, Boudoir Girls supply a talented team of make-up artists to change up your look for the shoot; whether you want a sultry smoky eye and red lip or a funky neon themed look, you can personalise your theme to whatever suits you and your hens best.

Costumes and props to suit all different types of themes are provided so you and your girls can capture just how gorgeous you all are and create amazing photo memories of your last single night out!

Your beauty will be enhanced with true celebrity treatment on the final pics- removing tan lines, teeth whitening, skin airbrushing- your photos will be perfected in every way you could want! So whether you want 80’s inspired neon photos or super sleek James Bond themed pictures, Boudoir Girls will capture all your amazing memories from an unforgettable weekend.

For the Outdoorsy Hen

If you’re a bride-to-be who is more George of the Jungle than Queen of the Selfie, The Jungle NI should be a home away from home for your hen weekend. Offering Paintballing, Tree Top Adventure, Zorbing, Clay Shooting, Archery, Llama Treks, Segway and Glamping amongst other super fun activities in the great outdoors, this activity centre is the ideal venue for hens who love pushing their limits and enjoying a big adventure.

You and your hens can make your way through zip wires, swings and an adrenaline-rushing power fan drop on the tree top adventure before rolling down a 300m hill in an adult-sized hamster ball as part of the hilarious sport of zorbing. If that wasn’t enough adventure for one day, why not take you and your girls on an off-road forest Segway tour? Or if you’d rather not Segway, what about trekking on a llama? You’re guaranteed a completely unique hen party experience here!

If you fancy something slightly tamer, try your hand as the next Katniss Everdeen and try a few archery lessons with your girls; with skilled staff at Jungle NI leading the way, you and your hens will be hitting the bullseye in no time! Finish off your hen party in style, with use of the outdoor hot tub after you and the girls enjoy a delicious BBQ lunch. There’s no doubt a hen party at Jungle NI is the most breath-taking option for a bride-to-be who loves the great outdoors!
