Where Are the Top Places for a Hen Do?


 

To add the wow factor to their special day, many couples choose to jet off to sunnier climes, hosting their wedding in a foreign country. But recent surveys have demonstrated that hen and stag dos are heading abroad, too, with more than 50% of Britons favoring this type of celebration.

So if you’re planning your hen do or someone else’s, here are some top destinations to choose from:

 

1. Algarve, Portugal

If the bride-to-be’s keen to top up her tan while enjoying a relaxing hen do (and a little bit of clubbing, of course), the Algarve along Portugal’s southern coast is the must-visit destination for your hen party.

Not only does this destination boast more than a hundred miles of stunning beaches and tropical waters but it’s also the perfect place to shop, too. Furthermore, at night, there’s plenty of entertainment to choose from, whether you want to dine out in style, try your hand at poker in a casino or dance until your heart’s content at some of the best clubs in Europe.

With such a variety of things on offer, this destination is ideal for catering for groups of people with varying tastes.

2. Dublin, Republic of Ireland

To avoid lengthy traveling periods, you might want to hop over the Irish Sea to Dublin (by boat or plane). Once there, you’ll discover plenty of pubs and bars (over 600 to be precise), lots of culture, friendly locals and hundreds of hunky Irish men – what more could you ask for?

Spend your day touring around all of the local sights and attractions before enjoying the unbeatable nightlife Dublin has to offer. And you could even extend the trip with a stop-off in Galway, a hip and up-and-coming city that’s growing in popularity thanks to its quaint charm and fabulous live music

3. Las Vegas, U.S.

Wanting to transition from single life to married life with a bang? Then Las Vegas is the place to enjoy those last few nights of singledom. After all, it’s the stag do location of choice, so why not make it the perfect place for your hen do, too?

From throwing down some chips in one of its world-famous casinos to enjoying a show, you can add plenty of glamour and excitement to your hen party in Sin City, just make sure you’ve got plenty of practice with a live casino dealer first

4. Reykjavik, Iceland

Last, but by no means least, is our curveball – the capital of Iceland, Reykjavik. This destination gives your hen do an instant, quirky touch but without removing any of the traditional must-haves, such as a night out on the town. With some unforgettable bar crawls and nightclubs on offer, Reykjavik’s nightlife is something to behold – especially when you head home in the early hours of the morning and see the Northern Lights in all their glory.

What’s more, you can also team your holiday there with a trip to one of its many geothermal lagoons – perfect for whiling away the day in (or nursing your hangover in!).

From sipping cocktails on the beach of the Algarve to rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous along the famous strip of Las Vegas, jetting abroad for your hen do is the sure-fire way to create memories that last a lifetime.
