Looking for activities that the entire group will enjoy? Keep on reading to find out.

Sports Match Weekend

If the groom is sports crazy, this idea will go down as a treat. Why not plan a weekend away based around some sort of sport like football, rugby, GAA, or whatever kind of sport the groom is into. We recommend finding out when the team is playing and then sort out accommodation, flights, and other activities for the weekend! Not only do you get to see a match, but you also get to travel abroad. It’s a win-win in our eyes!

A Weekend Abroad

A weekend abroad is another fantastic stag party idea! What a great excuse to get away with the boys for a few days of freedom! Soak up the sun, get stuck into exotic activities, and drink your lives away! Choosing locations like Budapest, Ibiza, Prague, or Marbella guarantees sunny weather, cheap booze, electric nightlife, and an overall good time! Accommodation abroad is also very affordable which is a major bonus!

Coastal Weekend

Pack up a bag and set off for a coastal trip with the lads. Rent out a house near a beach and chill for a night or two. Ireland has so many gorgeous coastal areas where you could choose. With everything going on with Covid-19, this may be a good option! Get stuck into outdoor activities like kayaking, surfing, rock climbing, coasteering, and many more! Order some takeaway and have a few beers! If the group isn’t fond of the party night scene, this option might just be the perfect fit.

Action Weekend

For the action sort, an action-packed weekend is a great option. Fill the weekend with outdoor activities like paintball, karting, axe throwing, assault course, clay pigeon shooting, and many more. This sort of weekend is ideal to get the whole group mingling. These kinds of activities are brilliant ice breakers.

Nature Weekend

For the sort who loves a calmer approach and being outdoors, a nature weekend could be a great option. Typically suited to smaller stag groups. Fill the weekend with mountain hikes, cycling, and visiting tourist attractions. Go at a slower pace and enjoy being in the company of good friends. Enjoy some delicious food and drink throughout the weekend.
