You’ll never walk alone in Athlone – it’s an epic stag party destination. Located on a lake, Athlone is a strong contender for an Irish stag party, because there are so many quality stag activities to take on. It is a decent-sized town with lots of pubs, clubs and nightlife shenanigans, and its central location in Ireland makes it easy to get to for local Irish stag parties or an easy drive from Dublin if your stag is visiting from abroad.
The town is situated on the Shannon at the mouth of Lough Ree and straddles the border of Roscommon and Westmeath, just like Kim Kardashian aloft Kanye in the Bound 2 music video. If you’re looking for stag party ideas and activities, there’s plenty!
If your lads are the outdoorsy types, you could add white water kayaking, paintball, clay pigeon shooting or even foot darts to your stag do package with The Stag’s Balls. If you’d rather avoid the elements and stay indoors, your stag party could try their hand at an escape room, The Cube quiz game, indoor karting or a savage whiskey tasting experience. Athlone has you covered for a great variety of stag party activities to keep your day interesting.
As for nightlife, Athlone is the largest town in the Midlands, so there is no shortage of nighttime spots and easy stag party friendly night activities here. Book your lads in for a booze cruise down the Shannon (with plenty of hens on board) before some tasty finger food to keep your stag party energy high for the rest of the night ahead. Sean’s Bar, which holds the Guinness World Record for the oldest pub in Europe, is a great place for a stag party pint before moving on to the Prince Bar or the Karma Club.
With quality stag do friendly accommodation like the Hodson Bay Hotel, Wineport Lodge and the Prince of Wales, there is certainly also plenty on offer here for the perfect stag party HQ in Athlone.
Booking your stag party with The Stag’s Balls could not be easier. Just build your own stag party package, click Book Now and choose your preferred times. Best of all, it’s free to submit!

They can also pay in instalments or even untick items they don’t want to do and they’ll pay less! We also have automated payment reminders so you don’t have to chase people down for money. Keep an eye on what each member is doing, and who is and isn’t attending through your personal stag party booking page. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
If Athlone doesn’t get your outboard motor running, we have a few other stag party friendly Irish locations that might just do it for you… how about Galway, Carrick-on-Shannon or Westport? Or change it up completely and take your stag party abroad to Berlin, Prague or Riga.
