With the higher temperatures that are characteristic to this time of year, why not consider booking a great weekend of antics in the great outdoors with us? Glamping hen parties are becoming more popular than ever at The Foxy Hen, and what better way to celebrate the bride’s last night of freedom than by sleeping under the stars with all the comforts of home at your side. Here are 5 reasons why we at the Foxy Hen believe that a glamping hen party is the way to go.
I think we can all agree that a hectic working life can sometimes get the better of us, and there’s nothing like winding down, (and back up again) than with a hen party. Adding a glamping theme to yours will give each of your hens the perfect opportunity to de-stress from the pressures of reality and spend a weekend soaking up all of what Mother Nature has to offer. The great thing about glamping however is that you don’t have to get down and dirty like normal camping, you have all the luxury of home with an added touch of nature, plus the freedom to make as much noise as you want. So take a deep breath and breathe in the sweet sweet smell of nature’s goods...followed by the harsh scent of alcohol. Party on, glampers.
Glamping may be the best portmanteau (yes, that’s a thing) we’ve ever heard of: Glamorous + camping = glamping. Genius. But in all seriousness, this trendy new style of getting away for a hen weekend has become more popular than ever, and for obvious reasons too. Glamping suits every member of the hen party, even those who prefer a bit of home comfort and would rather not spend 3 nights under a soggy tent in a field. Our glamping ecopods, huts, and cabins have state of the art amenities that cater for all of your hen party’s needs. This means no wet socks at the end of the weekend or warm cans that have spent the whole journey there next to the towel in your bag. You and the flock can let loose but still have a warm bed and heated accommodation to pass out in. Win win.
2017 is all about making the world a more environmentally-friendly place, and glamping can help you to do just that by booking your hen party with us. It’s a form of ecotourism which uses sustainable building materials for your accommodation, as well as reducing the amount of waste that’s normally produced in hotels and conventional accommodation. You may not be doing your liver any favours for the hen party weekend, but at least you’ll be doing the environment some!
This may come as a surprise to you budding hens, but there are actually a range of amenities on site when glamping, meaning you mightn’t have to leave the site at all over the weekend. Our package in Carrick-on-Shannon even includes a barbecue and catered breakfasts for a proper cure the morning after. There is also a rustic old pub on site which serves food and hosts live traditional music at night, meaning you don’t have to bring the party, it’s brought to you! Our cabins in Dingle include your very own self catering amenities, so you can host your very own party in or outdoors as you wish.
Finally, glamping is a great way of getting some much needed bonding time with your fellow chicks before the big wedding day. You can party as late as you want, without the hassle of worrying about getting everyone to and from different locations during the night. Those that wish to hit the hay a tad earlier than the other party revellers can do so, while others can stay up to party ‘til sunrise. You can also make as much noise as you want to, this is your jungle after all!
We offer glamping weekend packages in locations such as Carrick-on-Shannon and Dingle , meaning you and the hens can flock to the countryside without having to lug tents and deck chairs with you. Everything will be set up for you on arrival, all you’ve to bring is yourself and your foxy hens. So grab your bags, grab the birds and get your sing-song on!
