Top 10 Hen Party Destinations Abroad
Since we are the experts on Irish hen parties, we thought we would ask Mike the MD of Freedom, based in London, for his thoughts on the top 10 hen party destinations away from Ireland. We trust in his knowledge of all things hen weekends as he’s the founder of the first ever hen party planning business in 1996.
We were keen to hear why they are proving popular with the girls and here we share his opinions with you:
Welcome to the world of tartan, haggis and och aye tha noo. High on the popularity stakes due to its seriously huge options for drinking and dining. It’s easy to travel to our Scottish cousins for a
hen party in Edinburgh
Effortlessly combines all the bonuses of the coastal resort with big city vibe. Sun, sand and sangria make a
Barcelona hen weekend a favoured choice.
Our capital city beats the world, biased yes, but a London hen party as the lot… fact.
Cheap drinks, non-stop party atmosphere, sunshine and clubs all help to put a Benidorm hen weekend as a universally popular resort to visit.
Away the lasses, it’s a reet party toon. Those Geordies sure know how to party and absolutely love Newcastle hen weekends to party alongside them.
A destination that is easy on the eye as well as the pocket, and really shows Budapest hen weekends a good time with a thriving nightlife that goes on until well past sunrise… party into tomorrow
For a lorra lorra laughs, Beatle mania, Ferry across the Mersey and so much more. This city is actually now bursting at the seams with new bars, clubs and restaurants, Liverpool hen nights so are completely spoilt for choice… what a great position to be in!
Playground to the rich and famous, home from home for the cast of TOWIE and a Marbella hen weekend is a fashionable choice right now. So no Carbs before Marbs.
Often described as London by the sea, this is a fun loving town with a bohemian spirit. The iconic Brighton Pier with its amusement arcades and the famous funfair is a must for any Brighton hen weekend
Czech out Prague, awaiting your arrival are delightful cobblestone streets, fairytale castles, boutique shops and a bounty of cocktail bars. The next glass of prosecco/wine/cocktail is a short high heel totter away on a Prague hen weekend
THE SEVEN SEXIEST COCKTAILS YOU CAN SAMPLE IN DUBLIN
“Different cocktails for different Saturday nights.”
― Drew Barrymore
Boozes and hen parties are an evergreen combination
Dublin is one of the most popular destinations to celebrate your last night of freedom. Despite the Celtic Capital being famous for its pubs and beers, the city is not all about the pint. We’ve selected the most delicious and sexiest cocktails for you to sip on while celebrating your hen party or just having a weekend break in Dublin.
1. The Blindpig
Secretly tucked away in Dublin’s city centre, there is an underground cocktail bar known for the quality and artistry of its cocktails that truly evoke the mood of a 1920s speakeasy — The Blind Pig. This Underground Cocktail Bar & Restaurant will turn on every cocktail lover’s taste buds. Experience the forgotten thrill of secret passwords, false storefronts and just a touch of lawlessness. You’d better keep it a secret. So shush!
Cocktail: Maidens Blush
Maidens Blush : circa 1900. Old Tom gin, shaken with raspberry syrup, fresh lemon juice, and an Absinthe mist, served in a china tea cup.
Shake all the ingredients with ice and fine strain into chilled glass.
2. Urchin (St. Green)
Urchin is a newly-opened bar located at Cliff Townhouse. It serves some of the best cocktails in Dublin. It has a long list of cocktails, some of which will leave a lasting impression on you and the other members of your hen party. This list includes the following: • Skyscraper • Yuzasia • Mango Smash • Old Rumble
We loved the Mango Smash
Slices of mango, chopped plus more for garnish, lemon, mint leaves plus more for garnish, ounces simple syrup, ounces whiskey
In a cocktail shaker, mix the mango, lemon, mint leaves, and simple syrup until the mango is broken up. Add whiskey, ice, and shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Strain into an ice-filled glass. Garnish with one slice of mango and more mint leaves. Serve immediately.
3. No name
The Bar with No Name is located along No. 3 Fade Street, Dublin 2. It’s the ideal chill-out spot to hang out with your with your posse
and slurp up one of the best drinks you’ll find in Dublin. Here you’ll find an impressive selection of cocktails, but our favourite is..
…the Dark & Stormy
Rum, ginger beer, and lime juice
Combine the rum, ginger beer and the lime juice in a tall glass full of ice cubes.
Capitol stocks some exceptional cocktails. These include Woo-Woo, Capitol Mojito, Mimosa, and Melon Ball, among others. It has divided the cocktails into different categories, which are Frozen Cocktails, House Cocktails, Premium Cocktails and Capitol Shots. We tasted the French 75, a champagne-based cocktail, and we fell in love immediately.
Gin, Lemon juice, sugar syrup, champagne
Add gin, lemon juice, and syrup to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake. Strain into an empty glass. Top up with champagne. Garnish with lemon peel.
5. Vintage Cocktail Club
Vintage Cocktail Club is the place to go to for all your cocktail needs; it has a particularly impressive cocktail menu, providing an exclusive cocktail experience right in the centre of the wonder that is Dublin city. Apart from cocktails, the club’s menu features A La Carte and Brunch, among others. On the open-yet-cozy terrace roof, where you can enjoy a stunning view of Dublin, we tried the rich and exclusive La Feeeee..ling good
Fee Parisian, Apricot, cherry liqueur, carrot, apple juice, citrus
La Fee Parisian, apricot and cherry liqueur, fresh carrot and apple juice, fresh citrus, with an apple and cherry garnish
Bow Lane is a late night cocktail bar that appeals to a cross-section of Dublin society from the gritty underclass of sophisticates to creatives and the party set. Bow Lane has areas that satisfy a want for exclusivity and other areas that create a space for typical Dublin social intercourse. Quality cocktails, craft and classic beers, and of course spirits complement the modern Irish dishes at the bar and in the restaurant. Among their sophisticated cocktails, we tasted the Bow Lane Boomerang
Absolut vodka, kahlua, mozart dark chocolate liquer, double shot of espresso, sugar syrup, shaken & strained into a coupette glass finished w/ a white chocolate & orange foam.
The Recipe is a secret of the bar and we now understand why they called it the Boomerang: we went back for the same cocktail, not once but twice!
7. The Liquor Rooms
Located on the easy-to-get-to Wellington Quay along the Liffey, The liquor rooms is a quirky alternative venue in the centre of Dublin which hosts art events and performances: Burlesque gigs, live DJs, poetry reading and may other artsy attractions. With an array of housemade tinctures and mixes, the finest quality spirits and ingenious methods, the theater of the cocktail explodes into life at The Liquor Rooms. From cocktails to craft beers and wine to whiskey tastings, they provide a selection that would satisfy the most demanding of connoisseurs. We sampled the oh-so-elegant cocktail called Madame
Olmeca Altos Blanco Tequila, Hibiscus & Strawberry Syrup, Lemon, Whites, Cherry Tonic.
In a shaker, add jam, gin or vodka, lemon juice, simple syrup, and several ice cubes. Shake briskly, then strain into a rocks glass half-filled with crushed ice. Float a spoonful of jam on top of the ice, and gradually stir it to taste.
Sexy cocktails, fascinating venues, and elegant bars: so many options in Dublin that one is spoilt for choice. And if you want to learn more about mixing the perfect cocktails, the art of mixology would be the perfect activity to celebrate an anniversary, birthday party or hen party

Great people and entertainment spots are in plenty guaranteeing that you will not have one dull moment during the hen party weekend. We know Dublin and we know where to take you, what to show you, and what to organize for a mind blowing experience for you and your friends.

We can organize the games at any of the favorite venues or at home. There are games for everyone in the group from timid Jane to wild Stephanie. Everyone will have a blast with our games.
Hen party games at home
- Story times
Everyone in the group writes down an embarrassing story about herself but does not mention any names in the story that would identify her. The stories are mixed in a bowl. Everyone picks a story and reads it out loud. The other hens must guess who the person is. Those who guess wrong must drink.
- Embarrassing photos
Each hen will come with their most embarrassing photos taken together with the bride-to-be. They are pinned up for everyone to see. The bride-to-be then identifies who brought the photo and the reason the photo was that bad. Or she can knock down shots.
- Guess her age
Pin up baby photos of the bride-to-be and the groom that were taken at different ages. Ask people to guess who is who and what their age was when the photo was taken. The hen with the most correct guesses wins.
- Who is it
This is where you have fun with a blindfold. Pick out one lucky hen and place her at the centre of a circle made by the other hens. Put a blindfold her and spin her 10 times. After being released she has to touch the nearest person and ask, ‘who is it?’ to which the other hen will answer. ‘It is me. Guess who?’ in an altered voice. The blindfolded hen must guess the answer right failure to which she is spun 3 more times and so on until she gets the answer right.
- The Ex-charades
The group is divided into two. One group will put on charades pretending to be exes of the bride-to-be. The bride-to-be must identify each charade correctly with a certain ex and if she fails she drinks.
- Banned words
The hen group can agree on words that are banned through the night. These could be ‘wedding’; ‘groom’ or even ‘sex’ The Bridezilla is one of the many variations you can have as punishment. Offenders can buy drinks too.
Make the most hideous prop you can think of like a walrus moustache, a chicken hat or an ugly veil and tiara. The rules are that no one will mention the words ‘bride-to-be’, ‘groom’, or ‘wedding’ while the game is on. Anyone who mentions any of these words wears the hideous outfit or prop until the next person mentions one of the words.
- Funny accents game
This is the perfect game for easing in strangers into the party. Take a deck of cards and write down an accent on each card. It can be Chinese, Italian, Nigerian or pretty much any other popular accent. Take another deck of cards and write some phrases to be spoken e.g. about friendship with the bride-to-be. Each hen must take an accent card and a phrase card then speak the phrases.
- Gift game
This is the ideal game for making the bride-to-be feel appreciated. Everyone in the group brings along a gift that signifies something of the friendship between them and the bride-to-be. The bride-to-be has to guess who brought the gift and why. There will be lots of reminiscing in this game.
- Lingerie game
Every guest brings lingerie gifts for the bride-to-be. She has to guess correctly who bought the lingerie according to the fashion of the items. If she is wrong she drinks and if she is right, the person who brought the gift drinks. Only remember to set a price cap so that egos are not wounded.
- DIY bridal dress
Form up the hens into three or two teams depending on the number. Give each group pins and a roll of toilet paper. Ask them to make the bride-to-be’s and best maid’s dresses. The best team gets lots of tequila shots.
- Balloon questions
Take around 20 balloons and put embarrassing questions for the bride-to-be in each. Have the hens pop a balloon at intervals and pose to the bride-to-be. She will have to answer the question or knock down a shot.
- Balloon pass
Split the group into two teams. Each team gets a long balloon which members will try to pass along their team line without using hands. If the balloon drops or pops the team has to start over. You can combine this game with the balloon questions game for more fun. This will be mad fun as fully grown women hop around with balloons between their legs.
- Card bluff game
Take a deck of cards and share around. The aim of the game should be to get rid of the cards. The first hen to get rid of her cards has to lay down the last pair or single card and shout the card face e.g. ‘King of jacks’. This could be true or a bluff. If another hen decides she is lying, she will shout ‘bluff.’ The one who claimed a finish must then show the cards. If it was a bluff she is punished by taking a dare. If the accuser is wrong, she takes the extra cards on the table and a dare.
- King’s cards
This is a game for hens that can hold their drinks. The group forms a ‘circle of death’ with a glass in the centre. Cards are distributed to the hens with each card representing a task the group must complete before the next hen shows her card. Card rules can for example be:
Card number 2 for ‘Make a Rule’ which means the hen who shows this card can make a rule like friends drink together.
Card number 7 for ‘Seventh heaven’ which means all players point towards the ceiling and the last hen to do so takes a drink.
Jack for ‘Jackass’ which means the hen that shows this card drinks when anyone else is forced to drink until another jack is shown.
King for ‘The drink of shame’ which means anyone showing a King pours some of her drink into the glass in the middle of the circle of death. The last hen to show a King downs the entire glass.
Naughty hen party games
- Cucumber sandwich
Get hold of a cucumber with your legs and pass it on. The drunk the group gets the harder it becomes to pass. Do this a few times during the night.
- Naughty consequences
Each hen takes a piece of paper and writes down a short story with headlines Her name, His name, Where they had sex, What position, and Who caught them doing it. For wilder stories, remove the names and have anonymous stories.
- Naughty mould
Bring out the creative side of the hens and have a laugh at their take on the phallus. Everyone takes playdoh and some cylindrical form like a cucumber. The moulding can be done individually or in a team. The best shape takes the night. Ladies can get quite creative about the ‘stick.’ A longer variation of this is where you make a full form male model out of the playdoh. The best looking playdoh guy in the room gets the prize.
- Strip hangman
This is the hangman game with a naughty twist. Have a willing man present with his clothes on. Use the usual hangman rules but remember to use naughty words about sex in every phrase. Every hen that gets the right word gets to remove a bit of clothing from the man. Hire a fireman if you can!
- Marrying this guy?
Every man has an ugly photo taken when the guy was drunk silly or sleeping with his mouth wide open. Look for the ugliest shot of the groom and have the bride-to-be hold it visibly. She has to show to show the picture to a stranger when issued with a command code word. The hen doing the code word buys a drink if the bride-to-be is unflustered at the embarrassment.
- Naughty pass the parcel
This is like pass the parcel but with an intriguing naughty twist. The parcel is layered with naughty items like vibrators, condoms, dildos and other items that are to be found in sex shops. Capture the moment each hen opens her parcel. There will be a lot of interesting discussions going around.
- Naughty treasure hunt
Check out how naughty the hens can get by sending them out on a treasure hunt. Ask them to go find something in limited time. This could be something naught like worn men’s underwear, or a live man. Give them 15 minutes and see what they drag in.
- Pass the vibrator
This is good for putting strangers in a naughty mood. Get a vibrator and pass it around without using your hands. Ask the vibrator to be passed around using the chins. Get an interesting vibrator like the bad vybes vibrator.
- Condom craze
This is not for the faint hearted hens. The goal is to try putting a condom on a dildo or the real thing without using hands. The hens should use only the mouth for this contest. You can lower the lights and use glow condoms to put heart into the timid. The hen with the fastest sheathing time gets the prize plus lots of cheering.
- Sex bingo
This is bingo with lots of sexy shouts instead of ‘bingo.’ Hens choose 6-9 numbers which are between the values of 1-50. This can be expanded depending on the size of the group. When the host shouts out a number, the hen with that number makes a noise like she is having sex or shouts a word used when having sex. When you are near your last number you shout ‘I am coming.’ When the host shouts the last number you shout ‘I’ve come!’ Expect a lot of surprising noises in this game.
- I’ve never
Check out how wild or timid your hens are with these confessions. Everyone starts with the words ‘I’ve never….’ Choose a topic on sex and sex styles. Agree on a ‘punishment’ for something like never having done doggy style. The good thing is that the drunker they get, the more outrageous their wishes become.
- Biscuit bite
How good are our hens with their mouths? Ask them to shape a biscuit into the shape of a schlong by taking bites out of it. The best shaped biscuit takes the prize.
- The balloon hump
Have the hens work their waists. Take a pair and put a balloon between them such that they are squeezing the balloon between their pelvises. Ask them to burst the balloon by making humping movements. Interesting!
- Marshmallow contest
You will need a few bags of marshmallows. The hens stuff their mouths with marshmallows then try say a chosen word or phrase like ‘sexy john’ without spitting the marshmallows.
Hen party games online
There are plenty of games online to try. There are tens of ideas to try out. There are also fabulous games you can improvise using Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Some of the games can be played in a digital version.
For example, the embarrassing photos game can be played on Instagram with a few changes to the anonymity rules. You can also play the good old truth or dare by daring hens to tell their sordid online games else, they do something risqué online like joining a video chat room and entertaining stranger.

60 Minutes of 80’s Dance
People in the 80s hardly had problems with their weight, all thanks to disco. Bursting those 80s disco moves burns through the calories as a hot knife on butter. Our 60 minutes of 80s dance-a-thon goes through 327 calories, the same amount you’d shed off after a workout at the gym.
While we won’t force you to perform a striptease during your hen party, we can teach you a thing or two about burlesque. It’ll come in handy during your honeymoon, trust us. As an added advantage, you get to lose as many as 305 calories after our burlesque class.

If you are feeling a bit adventurous and you want something lacier than 80s dance, you can try your hands, and body, at pole dancing. You’ll need a firm grip, though, pole dancing is not as easy as they make it seem on the tube. In fact, a single pole dance goes through 544 calories.
Nude Body Painting
Since we are being a bit cheeky, we have an excellent nude body painting program our hen party organizer can throw in if you want. We won’t force you to paint your bridesmaid or something like that, but we’ll bring in a couple of artists to cover you with any color you desire. Afterward, you’ll have lost about 175 calories.
It’s hard to imagine cooking can help you shed off those extra calories, right? Well, it does, even if you are whipping up a juicy side of stake with some mashed potatoes, you’ll still lose 180 calories. That’s because cooking is a demanding activity that consumes a lot of energy, ergo, lots of calories.

Hot hen party nights in Dublin
“When the short days of winter came, dusk fell before we had well eaten our dinners. When we met in the street the houses had grown sombre. The space of sky above us was the colour of ever-changing violet and towards it the lamps of the street lifted their feeble lanterns. The cold air stung us and we played till our bodies glowed. Our shouts echoed in the silent street.”
