Dublin has long been a favourite for stag parties and tourists, and the Irish capital remains a great place to party despite the changing times, it would seem.
Writing for the Daily Mail, journalist Rob Murphy described his previous trips to Dublin as "strange mixtures of culture and rowdiness", with the Emerald Isle boasting several top attractions.
The city is now home to a string of trendy wine bars and top-class hotels, but the traditional pubs still serve up Ireland's best beers, Mr Murphy discovered.
While the "cheering guys and gaggles of squealing hen parties" weren't quite to his taste, the evening hustle and bustle of the historic Temple Bar could prove the ideal place for a stag night.
In addition, of course, a tour of the nearby Guinness Storehouse is bound to prove a hit with any stag party, especially when it ends with "the most technically-perfect pint you can get in the world".
According to Andrew Parker of the Sun, Dublin is not the only tourist hotspot in Ireland, with an increasing number of visitors beginning to discover the attractions of the country's lesser-known midland region.
