6 original ideas for the perfect hen party in 2017

Brought to you by HenParty.ie.

So, you're planning a hen party?


It's a pretty big responsibility. You've got a lot of people to please, the mother of the bride, all the other bridesmaids and of course the bride herself. It's enough to make your head spin.

But, before you get yourself in a flap, fear not because we have rounded up some of the best (and most original) hen party ideas for 2017.

Now pass me the feather boas and the penis straws.


Drink tea in Father Ted's house

Is your very own Mrs Doyle tying the knot? If your bride is a fan of Father Ted then she will love a visit to the parochial house on Craggy Island for a quick cup of tea.

Start your bus trip by visiting the Lovely Horse Waterfall, where the video for Ted's Eurovision entry was filmed (yes, really!). Then get dolled up in your best lovely girls costume for a Mrs Doyle bread buttering competition in the local pub.

Listen, you couldn't make it up.


Nab yourself a fireman

Lots of ladies have a bit of a grá for a man in uniform, so if you really want to give your hens a day to remember then why not book them a firefighter experience?

You'll get to go for a spin in a fire engine, practice on the poles and hang out with a bunch of burly firemen. Sure what more could you want?


Have a fabulous gin tea party

Possibly the best activity invented by mankind! A gin tea party is the perfect mix of sophistication, style and...well..booze.

So, whether you like your gin with a slice of cucumber or a dash of elderflower, you are guaranteed to have a fantastic time. Don't forget pinkies out.


Go glamping

Before you conjure up an image of a flooded tent at Oxygen fear not because glamping is something different entirely. There are lots of fab campsites around the country where you can stay in everything from a yurt to a tree house. It would be fab for a festival-themed hen do.

Build a willy class

Yes, surprisingly enough this is an actual thing! Try something different for your hen party and host your very own build a willy competition. You're guaranteed to be in absolute stitches as you all try your best to craft the best penis out of clay.

Afternoon tea bus

Does your bride like all things elegant and classy? Then she will love a trip on an afternoon tea bus. It's a great way to see some sights, have a quick bite to eat and a good natter all in one go. Mind your manners now.
