So, in order to make sure you get the most out of your experience with us, we’€™ve compiled a list of our 5 top outdoorsy hen party activities that will make sure the bride-to-be is sent off to married life in sun and style.

1. Surfing Hen Party

For those who want to get a real taste of the wild Atlantic Way, how about heading wesht and having a look at our surfing packages in locations like Castlegregory, Dingle, Killarney, Sligo and Westport for your hen party. Not even the windy waves of the west can dampen your spirits here, as all our packages cater to those at any level of surfing.

Whether you’€™re a Kelly Slater or a Kelly-I’€™llTryLater, you’€™d be mad not to have a go at this rockin’€™ hen party option. Surf’€™s up!

2. Kayaking

For those who prefer to stay slightly drier but still want to be on the water, kayaking is the perfect option for your hen do. In boats of one or two hens, you and the girls can enjoy a spin around Galway Bay or a paddle through sea caves at Dingle harbour. This activity is suitable for non-swimmers too and is taught by qualified instructors, so you don’€™t have to worry about getting sea-sick the morning after.

Scroll on over to our destinations page where you can find out more about our offers for this fun-filled activity offered in Carrick on Shannon, Dingle and Galway.

3. Coasteering

For all you thrill-seeking hens out there, this rough yet remarkable activity is made just for you! Featured only in Westport, you and your party can enjoy a day-long adrenaline rush filled with scrambling up rocks, cliff jumping and adventure swimming through sea caves. Coasteering (or canyoning, as known to some) is the ultimate hangover cure, and is managed by experienced leaders who will ensure no one at the party gets turned into scrambled eggs.

Available only in wild Westport, make sure to book now to guarantee a day of adrenaline-induced adventure for your hen party!

4. Wet ‘N’ Wild Adventure

To keep the adventure seeker’€™s ball rolling, head on down the west coast to Limerick , where you can enjoy a fast paced group activity that will either cure the hangover from the night before, or send you spiralling straight into the night out. Either way, you’€™re bound to have a whale of a time at your hen party while taking part in our Wet ‘€˜n’€™ Wild Adventure option, as you navigate your way through whitewater rapids and slides, while trying to keep all eggs in the basket.

All equipment is provided, and an experienced guide will make sure everyone makes it safely home to enjoy the bride’€™s last night of freedom. What better way than this to show off what a great team your party is! Available in Athlone and Limerick.

5. Great Adventure Race

Our final fave is one of the most popular at The Foxy Hen, known as the Great Adventure Race. Get ready to go head to head with your hen party to battle it out on a treasure hunt with many surprises thrown in along the way. Without revealing too much, hens will have to face a range of hilarious and silly challenges as they race against each other, including zorbing towards the finish line on water!

You’€™d be cuckoo not to go for this option, which guarantees a day of good ol’€™ friendly competition to give the bride one final run for her money. Available in Athlone and Limerick.
