Dublin Hen & Stag Ideas

Dublin city is naturally a hugely popular destination choice for both hen & stag groups. We here at theKeyCollections wanted to gather some of our personal recommendations together to offer you some inspiration during your planning!

The Day

Viking Splash Tour

Our manager at Kildare Street Hotel by theKeyCollections, favours the Viking Splash tour for an entertaining day time activity for all groups. They have some great packages available that include a main course & drink. See the Dublin sights by land and water. It doesn’t have a roaring reputation for nothing, check it out for an unusual but thrilling way to spend an afternoon with friends.

Dublin Pedal Tours

Our front office Manager at Temple Bar Apartments by theKeyCollections highly recommends Dublin Pedal Tours - he has heard the positive feedback from our own guests. This is the perfect choice for any Hen or Stag group. Your group will certainly have some fun while seeing the sights and keeping ‘refreshed’ throughout the day. You can tailor-make your own route, blare out the tunes and laugh the day away. We find this is also great value for money so get in touch with Dublin Pedal Bus for further information.

Dancing Hen

Our team at The Camden Hotel by theKeyCollections – reckon you can really spice up your hen party with this option. It is the ideal day time activity the whole group can get involved in. The classes last 90 minutes & Dancinghen.ie will arrange the Dublin location subject to your accommodation and group numbers. Choose from an array of styles including Beyonce, Dirty Dancing, Thriller, Vintage and Burlesque. Use your group moves later in the evening and be the centre of attention.

Group Photo Shoot

Our manager at Amberley House & Apartments by theKeyCollections recommends a group photo shoot, for a truly unique option & to ensure you remember your weekend in Dublin for a lifetime. ‘Eve Power photography’ will work a package around your needs, requests & location. Take a look at some previous quirky photo shoots done in Temple Bar for some inspiration!

Nothing planned?

Why not simply take a relaxing afternoon stroll around the streets of Dublin. There is so much to see. Soak up the buzzing atmosphere, sounds, smells & tastes! Chill out in Stephens Green, do some retail therapy on Grafton Street finished off by stepping into the Irish culture in ‘The Temple Bar’ for some traditional food & drink.


The Night

The famous Temple Bar is the obvious choice to hit for the liveliest nightlife; A little planning ahead could save the evening.

Harrys on the Green

Sinéad, our manager of Temple Bar apartments by theKeyCollections, has offered her personal recommendation - Cocktail making in Harry’s on the Green. Each masterclass has a dedicated mixologist taking your group through each step. This is a great way to kick off your evening – with fun guaranteed. We have heard directly from our guests that they were fully satisfied with this evening option for their night out and loved the ‘New York’ feel & style of Harry’s on the Green.

Oscars Christchurch

Oscars Christchurch is definitely one to consider. It has a cool, hip feel to it upon entry. Oscar’s Christchurch sits on the edge of Temple Bar and offers a sophisticated experience. It is located within Handels Hotel Temple Bar by theKeyCollections. They have the beautiful Mezzanine Restaurant also on site.


Stephanie from Hotel St. George by theKeyCollections is a regular socialiser in Dublin city – her personal recommendation to our groups is Bad Bobs. Bad Bobs is ideally located in Temple Bar and consists of 5 floors, each with a unique atmosphere. There is live music every night followed by DJ’s. Speak to their team to discuss your group event!

The Church Cáfe, Bar & Restaurant

Our team at City Studios & Apartments by theKeyCollections are big fans of The Church Café, Bar & Restaurant. This location has pretty much everything you want for your night out with bar food, a beer garden & a nightclub. Reserved areas and finger food is also an option.
