Galway Hen party activities are key for any fun Bachelorette party. It’s hard to pick which one, first step is to ask the bride what she wants. After that, you can see what’s available in your area. Here we give the list of the top Galway options.
Burlesque and comedy show for your Galway Hen Do
The Dirty Circus is truly a unique concept. It describes itself as a spectacular live show of Burlesque and Cabaret. It also includes comedy, pole, drag and surprises. They’re a regular on the festival circuit where they’ve gotten great reviews. The MC will guide you through the night. The Dirty Circus tagline is that “each audience member is truly welcomed into our world of appreciation”.
Their shows usually take place at the Roisin Dubh. Their Twitter is always active for any upcoming shows. This Hen party idea really fits the soul of the city with it’s arty vibe. It’s also something quite different for people who have been to every type of Hen party previously. It’s priced usually at 20e per person. You’re guaranteed a night that everyone will always remember!
Party Boat with your Hens
Galway has a proud naval tradition. It continues with the Corrib Princess Hen party boat. It does exactly what it describes on the title. A glass of champagne on arrival and live DJ on the boat while you cruise for two hours on the Corrib. There’s an indoor and outdoor part of the boat for the famous rainy weather. A key bit of information in the small print is that you can’t bring outside alcohol onto the boat as they already have a full bar.
They usually have a season of April to September. But if you call and ask then they may be able to do it outside the season. The Corrib Princess have a slot every Saturday from 4.30pm to 6.30pm. It’s 22 euro per person. They have a special offer that the bride goes free if there’s over 15 people. It departs from Woodquay which is a 15 minute walk from the city centre. Their Tripadvisor reviews back up their quality and are great to learn more.
Dance away with your Bachelorette Party
Coyotes bar offers different dancing packages for your Galway Hen party. Our dance pick is replicating the famous scene from Coyote Ugly. They even have a photographer so you can forever remember your best moves. Most importantly they offer a bullet shot. This may help your dancing on the bar! The package price is 200e. With all the package options for Coyotes, they include reserved seating, glass of bubbly on arrival and complimentary guest entry.
Their other dance package includes all the classics. You can choose from Grease, Footloose, Thriller, Uptown Funk and Single Ladies. This is 150e for up to 15 people. They’re located on Shop Street, in the heart of Galway.
Eile Mental Activity Park
Eile Mental is Galway’s newest activity park. It’s located 15 minutes outside of Galway in Furbo. They have a range of different activities. Their most popular include paintball, archery, disc golf, orienteering and E-combat. E combat is our recommendation. It’s like a more advanced laser tag. They classify it as a combat simulation game where teams engage in a realistic battlefield scenario. They must use strategy and tactics to escape from the situation.
It’s an outdoors activity and goes ahead even if it rains. From the website, bringing boots and activity clothes is a good tip.
