Organising a Stag or Hen Party in Sligo
Sligo is quickly becoming one of Ireland's hottest stag and hen party destinations. Sligo town boasts a diverse selection of eateries and restaurants that cater for even the most electric diets.
Looking for a vegan restaurant? Check out The Sweet Beat Café. More interested in indulgent Italian food? Why not stroll through Sligo's Italian quarter for some of the best pasta this side of Milan.
When you're ready to wet your whistle, bars like Lillie's Cocktail bar offer indulgent cocktails. At the same time, those in the mood for something more traditional will find a comfortable booth waiting in the Snug bar.
As you can see, Sligo's growing reputation as a Stag and Hen do destination is certainly well earned. As an established Sligo Taxi company, we have safely transported Hens and Stags all over Sligo. Therefore, we're uniquely positioned to suggest a rough Stag or Hen itinerary for any best man or maid of honour organising a day or weekend trip.
Stag and Hen Party Activities
Long gone are the days when hen and stag parties were spent lounging in a dark corner of a pub. These events have now expanded to include a host of fun and physical activities. Sligo town and county have a range of group activities that are perfect for hens or stags.
Similar to paintball, airsoft uses plastic pellets rather than balls of paint. Airsoft breaks a group into teams that compete in various military-style simulations. This is a great, physically demanding activity for Stag and Hens.
Sligo is close to some world-class surfing destinations. If your group isn't scared of getting wet, book a surfing lesson with one of the many nearby surfing schools. We suggest shopping around as many schools offer significant group booking discounts.
Are you looking to get silly? Funball involves playing football while each player is jammed inside a giant inflatable ball. As you might expect, chaos ensues—great competitive fun for the group that likes a laugh. Funball is usually played on AstroTurf pitches and lasts for about an hour.
As hinted at in the opening paragraph, Sligo is becoming a mecca for Noth-West foodies. The diversity of restaurants on offer means that you’ll find something suitable for your tastes no matter your preferences.

No stag and hen party is complete without checking out the local nightlife. Sligo certainly doesn't disappoint in this department.
