Cocktail Making Classes
Prepare to master the art of mixology, as cocktails with the girls takes on a fun twist. Equipped with a professional bartender, your party will be shown how to make the most delicious concoctions. This option is a great ice-breaker, especially if your hens don’t all know each other already. A cocktail making class is a relaxed and fun way to get the night-out going.
Major laughs are certainly on the cards if you opt to make Laughter Yoga part of the Hen festivities. Laughter Yoga is an interactive experience that combines games, laughter exercises and fun yoga sequences. It’s an amazing way to get the Hen party started and everyone in a relaxed and happy mood.

You and the gals could try your hand at some flower crown making, watercolours or even some life drawing – a great surprise for your bride when the model is revealed! Plus, there’s no need to worry if art isn’t a natural talent. There will be expert guidance on hand whilst your hens unearth their inner artist with lots of giggles too.
Home Hen Parties
Reckon a more low-key, casual event would suit your bride-to-be best? There’s always the option to take the party to your Hen in the comfort of her own home. Though this requires a bit more planning on your part, having a hen party at home means you can tailor the activities and experience to exactly what you want to include. The opportunities are endless, you could plan some wine tasting, set up a mini spa, put together a tasteful afternoon tea, plan fun home party games such as Prosecco Pong or even a host a quiz about the bride.
If you’re after a saucier option for your bride, the Ann Summers party has to be the way to go. Prepare your hens for an unforgettable night of giggles, stories, lingerie and sex toys. These parties include lots of hilarious games and activities, and who knows, you might even learn a few new things about your fellow hens!
Lastly, you could have your hens all embrace their inner (or outer!) culchie at a farm-themed hen party. A priceless experience, farm parties might have your hens milking cows, chasing chickens and all sorts of other ridiculous and entertaining activities. There’s lots of craic to be had on the farm, just don’t forget the wellies!
