The Irish really do know how to party, so Belfast should be your number one stop if you’re looking for a stag do that’s fun and full of character. Full to the brim of authentic traditional pubs to grab a pint of Guinness in, outdoor beer gardens to bask in the city atmosphere, and some of the friendliest locals around, there’s no better place to spend your stag do.
With its beautiful countryside –so good that they filmed Game of Thrones here - there’s plenty of places to try your hand at some outdoor sports, which is the perfect way to kick off a lads’ weekend. You don’t even need to worry about how you’re going to get there, because we’ll organise all of your activity transfers for you for a small additional charge, meaning you and the lads won’t have to worry about finding your way, which leaves you plenty of time to concentrate on which pub you’re heading to afterwards.
But it’s not just the great outdoors that makes Belfast the ultimate stag destination – there are also some top nightclubs to suit all music tastes, plenty of delicious places to eat, and even a night at the dogs (general admission) to make sure that this weekend is one of the best you’ll ever have.
With so much to do here in Belfast, the hardest part is knowing where to start. Belfast is famous for many things, but one of the top ones has to be the setting for Game of Thrones. We know you’re a fan – how could you not be – so make sure you get yourselves onto the Game of Thrones tour, where you spend the day being shown around all the top filming locations with an expert tour guide. Even if you’re not a fan of the show, you get to see some of Belfast most famous landmarks, so you can say you saw some sights in amongst all that drinking.
If you’re into the idea of being out and about but want something a little more hands-on, be sure to try out some of our incredible outdoor activities. Clay pigeon shooting is always a favourite amongst the lads and is the perfect gentleman’s sport, guaranteed to keep everyone happy – even your dad if he’s along for the ride too. For a bit more of an adrenaline rush that requires some nerve and skill along the way, the high ropes course and zipline will separate the men from the boys. Making your way through the tree tops requires balance and bravery – the perfect way to get everyone working together and bonding. If a bit of speed is more your things, indoor karting – endurance racing is the top pick for this weekend. As you and the boys race each other around the track, it’ll definitely open up some of that competitive spirit and settle some old scores about who is the best driver.
Once you’ve got your teeth into some competition, there’s no better way to keep the momentum going than with paintballing – you get a full day and 100 balls to see you through to victory. Once you’re battered, bruised and had enough adrenaline to last a lifetime, getting yourselves out on the town is the only way to round off the night. With plenty of top nightclubs in Belfast, there’ll be no shortage of places to go. We’ve even sorted you guestlist to the best clubs, including the Alibi guestlist which will make sure you and the lads get straight in so you don’t need to waste any time when you could be drinking and enjoying the fantastic DJs inside.
