12 Best Stag Party Ideas
Getting tasked with organising the Stag Party is a privilege but also a huge responsibility! The groom’s final single days certainly call for some unforgettable celebration. Not to worry though, we’ve got some great ideas listed below to help you get started.
Go to war with a paintball stag party and fire paint-filled capsules at your mates in military scenarios! This is one activity your Stag is unlikely to forget in a hurry. But doesn’t it hurt you ask? While not totally painless, we reckon this only adds to the excitement and adrenaline of the day! Of course, you are given protective gear to cover your face and clothes, so this won’t get in the way of the craic.
Planning for an adrenaline-junkie Stag? An action-filled adventure package might be the way to go. There are so many different fun and adventurous activities you could organise from zip-lining, hiking, mountain biking or maybe a fun water sports package with kayaking, rafting, river expeditions or even some banana boating. Great for keeping everyone entertained and making the most of your time together.
Do you and the guys need a change of scenery? A Night Cruise is an epic way to kick off the night with most cruises having a fully licensed bar and DJ. This is a unique way to celebrate the Stag and is great way to get to know the whole Stag party. You can then continue the night knowing the whole group will be setting off in good spirits.
Air Rifles & Archery
Another fun option for the Stag party is to do some archery or air rifling. Equipped with a qualified instructor, these activities make for a fantastic day out for your Stag. Archery and air rifling are inclusive activities and will suit even the more reserved guys in your party. Steady your nerves and get practicing those swift reflexes in preparation!
Foot Golf or Football Darts
Does the Stag love a good football challenge? You can test his and the rest of the parties’ skills at some Foot Golf or Football Darts. As you might expect, Foot Golf is a bit of football and golf combined, while Football Darts involves kicking a football with sticky pads at an enormous inflatable dartboard. It’s sure to keep the laughs going well after the event with plenty of “post-match” analysis afterwards in the pub!
Game Show Centred Stag Parties
Every Stag party has to include some fun and games but going for a Game Show package makes it legendary! Game packages are a fast-paced way to get the lads chatting, debating and engaged in some healthy competition. Participants compete against each other at a whole bunch of different games. This is a massively entertaining option for all.
For some speedy excitement for all, you can’t go wrong with a Go-Karting Stag Party. This is one of the all-time classic Stag activities and brings the adrenaline from start to finish. Time for the Stag team to finally crown who is the best driver! At Irelands largest indoor track (County Leitrim), you can even compete to beat Stig’s best time for prizes.
Revisit your youth with an old-style retro Sports Day for all the gang! This unique day out is another one great for getting the competitive juices flowing. A Stag Do Sports Day includes all the school sports from back in the day with lots of hilarious surprises thrown in for good measure.
Want to give your soccer-mad Stag the ultimate gift of showing off to the group? Then an Ultimate Soccer Skills Stag Party is the right choice. Here, the whole party will get to test their soccer skills against each other to see who will reach the final. With medals for the winners, be prepared for a competitive ride with this activity! Will your group let the Stag win the bragging rights?
Get the boys together, grab a few burgers, beers and a tent and head into the great outdoors for a camping trip. There are plenty of companies that will allow you to rent tents if some of the party are without, and, of course, for a bit more comfort there are options to rent cabins and caravans across the country. If you’ve got the skills, maybe you’ll even catch your own dinner!
Want to give your Stag a totally personalised experience? Why not get the group together and hit the road? You could plan out an itinerary of his favourite local spots, be they hikes, restaurants or bars – just don’t forget to book a designated driver if it’s the latter! The opportunities are endless with this Stag Do option.
Finally, you could have your Stag party really embrace the Country spirit with a Country Pursuits package. This package from The Courtyard Apartments combines clay pigeon shooting, archery, air rifles and falconry. Test the gang’s reflexes, skill and concentration with this brilliant afternoon out.
