Galway never disappoints for a Stag Party
It is true that Galway never disappoints for a Stag Party. This country of ours is such a beautiful place and our choice for a Stag Party venue knows no bounds. We could pontificate on the options all day and still only be making a dent on the list. Here is why Galway never disappoints for a Stag Party.
Geographically as we have pointed out before, Ireland has four sides, North, South, East and West. The country is 300 miles long and 160 miles wide. Galway is about half way up the West coast. It is known as the city of the tribes. It’s a brilliant spot with a myriad of events to enjoy.
1. This might seem like sedentary and not thrill a minute stuff, but a walk around the city centre is worth a king’s ransom.
The city fathers have put enormous efforts over the last fifteen years into making Galway an architectural and cultural haven. While doing so, they mixed the modern with the ancient without losing the charm of the place. From Eyre square and Ship Street the bustle of shoppers and tourists is mixed with the sounds of the street artists overlapping at every corner. There is a vibrant energy about the place.
2. A trip on Lough Corrib
Lough Corrib is one of the three largest Lakes on the river Shannon. There are cruising excursions from Galway city every day during the season. The crew of the vessel gives a commentary on the lake, the wild life and of course the Island where St Patrick had a monastery in the fourth century. It’s a dream trip for those interested in history and enjoy being on the water. The vessel serves food and snacks and has a licensed bar on board; a critical factor for a stag party.
3. Activities in Galway
One of the most famous racing festivals in Ireland takes place in Galway every year. If the Stag party is a gee-gee crowd then the Galway Races is a must! But beware, accommodation is as scarce as hen’s teeth on that week, so booking early is paramount and expect to pay over the odds. Anyway, horses aside, Galway is brimming with activities.
They range from paint balling to archery; clay pigeon shooting to fencing and of course, one of our favourites, karting. Galway even has Europe’s largest karting centre!
Karting is a high octane adrenaline rush. From putting on the racing gear, getting the helmet on over your David Beckham hairstyle (don’t knock if, we could have mentioned Mario Fellini!) – to studying the track, working out the strategy and getting instructions from the track officials. After that the group is split into teams and vroom, vroom, burn some rubber! A few laps of that and you’ll believe that you are Lewis Hamilton.
4. Bars, restaurants and night life
There are more bars than you could shake a stick at. The group will find that most have live music going on all day and night. We would recommend that the group makes its way down Ship Street towards the Spanish Arch. This area of the city is always buzzing and it’s the great big melting pot of cultures. In this area there are loads of restaurants serving high class organic foods, Asian street food and the regular fish and chips outlets.
Galway is always top of our list as it never disappoints.
