Dublin is not only the birthplace of Guinness, Jameson whisky and hilarious best man speech anecdotes, it’s the twinkling Irish gem of a city where stag do dreams come true. We don’t know anyone who’s been to Dublin and hasn’t been swept up in the haze of toe-tapping live music and ever-flowing stream of Guinness. We tend to find that when half of the stag group wants a full-on 72 hour, action-packed bender and the other half want traditional, old-school boozers and a bit of culture from the weekend, they happily settle on Dublin. There’s plenty going on to suit all ages, with the likes of craft beer and brewery workshop and a night at Dublin’s best comedy club being high on the stag do priorities list for your Dad, your best mate and your younger cousin, too. And, after a day of boozing, where better to head than the Temple Bar nightlife area for a guided bar crawl you’ll never have experienced anything like in your life. The sheer volume of live music haunts and huge range of stag-friendly activities will make you wonder why you ever considered anywhere else for your stag do.
We have over 120 stag do activities in Dublin which will keep you going throughout the day and night, most of which involve live music, amazing craic and drinking – so if you’re not up for that, stop reading now (and have a word with yourself). As far as daytime activities go, the iconic Guinness Factory tour and connoisseur experience is an absolute must on any stag weekend in Dublin.
The birthplace of the country’s best expat (other than Robbie Keane) is the city’s most popular attraction, with seven floors of interactive Guinness history to explore – and means you can combine cultural attraction with drinking which is a massive tick in our book. Similarly, the Old Jameson Distillery will have you fully immersed in Dublin’s history, but those tasting rooms turn it into a sort of semi-p*ss up, which we are absolutely okay with.
The pedi bus tour is also one of the most popular activities we offer in Dublin, which starts in the Temple Bar and sends you and your mates pedalling past the very best sights (and bars) in the city, whilst blasting your choice of tunes as you go – it’s a great way to work off that Guinness from the night before. If you’re wanting to sweat out a hangover the traditional way, you could always opt for a Gaelic Games session and add a bit of friendly competition to your stag weekend. You’ll even have a GAA accredited coach to keep you right as you hurl, kick and sprint your way through the match.
When it comes to activities top keep you pumped through the night, the beer babes guided bar crawl is a great way to get to grips with Dublin’s nightlife scene, especially if you haven’t been before. The beer babes will make sure you’re thoroughly looked after and will even collect your kitty to keep it safe – all whilst wearing sexy Oktoberfest wench costumes. We also offer entry and guestlist for the very best bars in the whole city, including Dtwo, Odeon Bar, Badbobs and even Club Lapello, Dollhouse and The Barclay Club. Plus, if you want to turn up in style to any of these bars, we recommend rocking up on the party bus.
