Wicklow Hen Party
Known as the garden county of Ireland, Wicklow is pure beauty, so what better place for you and the girls to get absolutely pampered. Tucked away in Enniskerry is the very vintage Summerhill House Hotel, home to the award-winning Rainforest Spa.
Here, super indulgent hen party packages start from just €149 per person sharing on Fridays or Saturdays. This package includes a glass of bubbly and tasty petit fours, one hour’s use of the stunning spa facilities before your choice of spa treatment (choose from a back massage, reflexology, facial, pedicure or manicure), a two-course evening meal in the hotel’s restaurant, an overnight stay, and sumptuous breakfast the next morning. Boost your time in relaxation heaven by adding extra treatments for just €15 or another night for €50 per person. Trust us, you won’t want to leave – it is gorgeous here! Get in touch with the Rainforest Spa directly and get the best price.
Wexford Hen Party
Next, we’re taking you to Wexford for the ultimate tea party. Primrose Cottage Cakes in Gorey is probably the prettiest place you and your ladies could spend an afternoon. Kitsch and cute is an understatement when it comes to the décor in Primmy’s Tea Room. Enjoy freshly baked treats and teas with a huge dollop of 1950s nostalgia. Oh girls, it has to be seen to be believed.
And if you can’t move after a few hours of sampling iced goodies, stay in Seafield Golf and Spa Hotel, just a ten-minute drive away from Gorey.
Another option we LOVE, especially if you like the idea of afternoon tea but are not fully feeling the 1950s vibe, is the superstars at Oh So Sweet Occasions. This bespoke mobile tea party crew will bring the china and cake to you and style your chosen Wexford venue to suit an endless list of themes (think boho, Hollywood glamour, hipster, 1990s). AND you can even bring your own sparkling wine or cocktails, which will be served up to you in champagne saucers. A saucer of alcohol, you say? We’re there!
Kilkenny Hen Party
From post-dinner drinks in The Left Bank to rocking the dance floor into the wee hours in Langtons, Kilkenny has your hen party nightlife 100 per cent covered. However, if what you’d really like is some down time with the ladies, why not check into five-star luxury at The Lyrath . The Girls Allowed package, starting from €135 per person for one night, has everything you and your squad need for a girly getaway. Catch up with all your lovely ladies at afternoon tea (I know, we just can’t get enough of it here at The Hen Planner!) on arrival, overlooking the amazing gardens.
Then get dolled up for dinner in Yindees Restaurant. Complete your night in with a private screening of a movie of your choice – bubbly and popcorn included. The next morning, chill out in the Oasis Health Club, complete with infinity pool, Jacuzzi and steam room. And if you’re not in a rush home the next afternoon or are checking in for another night, why not get to know Kilkenny a bit better with a treasure hunt. With challenges that will take you and the girls laughing all around the town, get ready for really simple fun at its best.
