Hens who enjoy a challenge will love this quizzing hen party idea.
Based on the hit TV show hosted by silver fox Phillip Schofield (our secret crush), this hen party activity is the closest you’ll get to the real deal without actually competing on the show.
Every hen has their chance in the spotlight (or ‘The Cube’) to show off their problem solving, memory and coordination skills. Hens can go head to head in a series of games to determine which hen is the foxiest, and which hen is getting the first set of rounds later.
The Cube activity usually takes place in a private room of a local bar or pub, so you’re perfectly set up to celebrate the winners after with a round of prosecco or even book in some finger food.
An afternoon tea transports your hens back to the 1920’s with a fancy tea party and would be the perfect hen do activity if you’re planning a vintage, Gatsby or tea party hen theme.
This hen idea sees your girls treated to gourmet sandwiches, lots of sweet treats and cakes, and a hot cuppa to wash it all down. Each venue crafts all of their signature goodies from scratch so hens will definitely be satisfied after this tea party with a twist. Keep an eye out for our afternoon teas that come with bubbly for something extra fancy.
Book your classy afternoon tea in Carlingford, Kilkenny, Cork or Westport.
This hen idea is a great way to ensure your hen party gets out and about to explore more of your chosen destination… beyond the local bar.
A hen party treasure hunt is bound to be a hit with girls who enjoy some sightseeing and adventure as well as puzzles and brain games. This team building hen activity is also a great STEN idea.

The only decision left to make with this hen party idea is how much you want to embarrass or celebrate the bride!
