Hen Heaven Spotlight on Dublin
Categories: Hen Party Advice
A new year a new city, well sort of… Because this year for our first spotlight article we want to rave about Dublin - that delightful city located in Ireland. If you’ve never been then you’re missing out on some serious fun: no one knows how to party quite like the Irish. So if you fancy ditching the usual hen party destinations like Brighton and Newcastle and trying something new then we highly recommend this craic loving city.
Not quite what you were expecting right? Well that’s the beauty of it; it’s interesting, educational and will certainly be memorable long after the weekend is over. For those who don’t know what Bollywood is, it’s a popular art form originating from India which involves choreographed dancing to (normally) upbeat and catchy songs. Bollywood classes are a great way to break the ice if you haven’t met all the girls before and we find it really sets the tone for the rest of the weekend.
How could you not go to this legendary factory? It’s like an unspoken rule that all those who visit Dublin (especially for the first time) need to visit the Guinness factory. Packed full of interesting facts about this glorious drink, you and the girls will have enough knowledge in your arsenal to impress any Guinness loving lad after you’ve visited this Tripadvisor hot spot. Plus, if that wasn’t good enough there will be plenty of chances to watch experts demonstrate recipes using Guinness and (of course) there’ll be an opportunity for you to pour and sip your perfect pint.
Shopping at Loft Market
Well it wouldn’t be a girly weekend without a stint of shopping now would it? So if you fancy grabbing the purse and heading out (maybe to potentially buy yourself a new one?) then head over to the Loft market. Founded in 2006 this unique and quirky market offers independent wares from a variety of artists & designers. Trust us; there isn’t a cooler or more interesting selection of street vendors anywhere in Dublin. A top place to buy souvenirs for those you love back home.
Sample the stew
Ireland is famous for its stew, so if you’re going to sample local cuisine then this is it. We recommend grabbing the girls and getting a table at the Porterhouse which is adorably rustic and is also Dublin's oldest microbrewery pub. The establishment only serves its own beers but they are extremely good, the Oyster stout made with real oysters (not as gross as it sounds) is delicious and you can rest easy knowing that this meal will be wonderfully made and won’t break the bank.
