Here are our top 7 Fun Hen Weekend Activities to do in Winter in Ireland

The days are colder and you don’t fancy jumping into the freezing Irish water or participating in an outdoor activity. You and your ladies would rather be indoors, dry and warm, then we are here to help …

1. Enjoy a cocktail party or cocktail making class

This activity is an excellent way to get the party started.

For 90 minutes you will have your very own barman to tend to all your drinking needs. This activity can take place in the Accommodation you are staying in or at a local Cocktail Bar in The Village. The choice is yours.

Each member of the group will receive approximately 2 Cocktails along with some sneaky shots. The Barman will give the Hen a brief introduction to Cocktail Making. Please note this is NOT a Cocktail Master Class.

This is an excellent way for the group to relax, kick back and let the drinks flow. It is a great activity for groups just before then head out!

7. Escape Rooms

Escape rooms are a great activity for those looking to do something a little different during their stay in Carlingford. There are currently three rooms with more coming soon.

Do you have what it takes to solve the clues and escape the room before the time runs out?

Infiltrate – “The year is 1982, Carlingford is a warzone with Hens and Stags. Marshall law is in place, one of your friends has been wrongfully locked up in the notorious Carlingford dungeon, accused of stealing a bike outside Dans cafe last night, the warden has gone on his lunch for 1 hour, find the clues, solve the problems and figure out the keypad code to escape or you will all be incarcerated for the night.”

Vacancy – “Exhausted after a long journey from Ardee hai, you arrive in Carlingford to find all the hotels booked out, an older man offers you a room in his old motel up the street and you kindly accept, you place your bag down on the freshly made bed, ready to relax. Suddenly, an ominous sixty minute countdown begins. No matter what you try, the door will not open. Welcome to the Carlingford Lough motel. You check in, but you NEVER check out…”
