If you’re wondering what stag weekend destination is best matched for a booze fuelled indulgent party then look no further than Dublin. The capital city of Ireland has an infamous reputation for being a city with many thirsty visitors and locals who enjoy tipping back the tipples and having a cracking good time. You’d be mistaken however if you thought that’s all this city can offer. With a vast array of fantastic shops, sights and countryside, Dublin can cater to plenty of tastes on your last weekend of freedom.
If you’re coming from mainland England, it’s probably easiest to take a flight. There are plenty of destinations throughout England that head to Dublin and with fights at competitive prices, it’s never been easier to arrive in the Emerald Isle. Once you’ve arrived at the airport, you’re only a few miles away from the city centre which is easy to get to by bus or by taxi. You can also get a ferry from Holyhead to Dublin or from Liverpool to Dublin. There are some reasonable fares but those northern waters can be choppy and a shaky stomach isn’t a great thing to start a stag weekend with.
We always make sure our guys are in central accommodation so you don’t need to worry about wasting time or money travelling from your hotel to the action.
During the day
Dublin is a beautiful city to wander round with some great shops especially on Grafton Street and Henry Street and in the famous Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre where you’ll find a range of independent and high street retailers.
If shopping isn’t on the agenda, then chances are the Guinness Brewery tour might be. It’s well worth a look round and entry gets you a pint of proper Guinness at the end and for some reason a pint of Guinness in Ireland tastes so much better than in England. Of course you can also do all the classic stag weekend activities in Dublin such as golfing, quad biking, clay pigeon shooting and paintballing if you want to shake things up in the day time.
During the night
Dublin is famous for its night life and appetite for a good time. There are plenty of bars and nightclubs just waiting to entertain you and your stag group for the night as long as you have the stamina for it. The area that most people have heard of is the Temple Bar area – which isn’t just one big bar, it is actually Dublin’s “cultural quarter” and you can expect something of a medieval setting with cobbled streets. What’s most important however are the number of lively bars, pubs and clubs that you can find here. This is a favourite with stag and hen groups coming from England so expect a rowdy fun loving crowd. This isn’t the only place to find night life by any means, and around the area of St. Stephen’s Green you will find some of the most popular nightclubs in Dublin.
All in all, this beautiful city will certainly make sure you are well looked after on your Dublin stag weekend.
