Why choose Galway as a Stag Party destination?
Galway is one of the top 3 stag party destinations in Ireland, and it is our favourite party city in Ireland. It has been said that Napoleon Bonaparte used to regularly charter a ship to sneak away for a weekend on the sauce in Galway. Apparently, he even had his stag party there before his second marriage to Marie Louise of Austria and spent his Saturday night sleeping rough in Eyre Square after getting so wasted he couldn’t remember what hotel he was staying in.
Galway is wedged with stag party-friendly accommodation, eateries, and bars, making it a super idea for a stag party weekend. Galway never disappoints! There is a huge range of stag do activity options as well. From go-karting to paintball or bubble football to clay pigeon shooting, there is plenty to see and do here. You can even test your manly sporting skills with Pureskill.
Stag party weekends in Galway are typically spent in the pub bopping to some traditional Irish music while surrounded by hen parties. During the winter stag do groups love spending a few hours chilling by a fire with pints of Guinness being downed by the keg load. Greyhound racing or ‘the dogs’ as it’s affectionately known, is extremely popular, especially for those on their stag party. It is a classic stag party-friendly evening activity and the Galway stadium has one of the best dog tracks in Ireland. Our pub crawls also go down a treat for all types of stag groups, especially the Casino Pub Crawl as you go from pub to pub capitalising on the drinks promotions and playing drinking games and finishing up in Galway’s best casino with unlimited drinks until 5 am.
As the night progresses, there are plenty of clubs and bars which we can have you rock in as VIPs, so throw on the glad rags and polish up those dancing shoes. Watch your back Travolta!
