Carrick On Shannon Still The Stag Party Capital Of Ireland! There are some truly brilliant towns and cities in Ireland for a stag party weekend. A Galway stag party and a Kilkenny stag party are always brilliant craic. However, there’s one town that’s punching well above it’s weight to deliver a fantastic stag party each and every weekend.
Carrick on Shannon is located in Ireland’s least populated county. Co. Leitrim for anyone that has not had the pleasure of visiting it, is a stunning little county in the West of Ireland. The landscape and scenery is breathtaking lads and well worth the spin. If that wasn’t enough, Carrick itself is over looking the stunning River Shannon.
What You Need To Know
All this makes for a fantastic backdrop as you head into a town known as the Stag Party Capital of Ireland. Gentlemen I can’t but begin to convey what a great night out is in store for you. It’s only a 2 hour drive or train journey from Dublin. That journey will be quickly forgotten as you settle in for that first delicious pint on the stag weekend.
Like a lot of men, a key for me when I arrive in any town is to be able to find a quality bar quickly. Whatever sort of pub you’re into be it a quiet cosy bar to ease into a Carrick on Shannon stag party or a sports bar to watch all the weekend sports action. It will take you no time at all to find a top quality pub and begin the stag party celebrations. Plus here in Stagparty HQ we make sure to have a few drinks lined up in a top bar too for your stag party.
Carrick has tons of great stag party activity options. You’ve got great activities such as Karting, kayaking, Zip Lining, and Paintball. Also with Carrick on Shannon being a boating hotspot, you can hop on board a Booze Cruise. Now that’s some way to get your Stag and Saturday night started.
In my opinion probably the best and most popular bars to visit when your in Carrick on Shannon are Dunnes and Murtaghs. They’re both big bars so you won’t be stuck for space. More importantly they’re both late bars. Dunnes is also the place to go if the weather is fine as it has a fantastic beer garden.
Murtaghs bar is spread over 3 floors and I’ve yet to have a bad night in there. There are plenty of pubs in Carrick so you won’t be short on choice. I think there’s 19 or 20 pubs and you’d walk all of Carrick on Shannon in about 15 mins. So you’re in luck if you fancy a pub crawl.
If you feel it’s time to pull some questionable shapes on a dance floor. Then Club 360 is the go-to spot. You’ll bump into plenty of other hens and stags partying the night away. The occasional inflatable willy might hit you but sure it’s all a bit of craic.
The one thing we always get from our stag parties that go to Carrick on Shannon is that they wish they could have stayed longer. The craic is non stop from the moment you arrive until the moment you leave. The warm welcome you receive in this town is for me what adds to the appeal of Carrick. Everyone you come across are up for a good night out or making sure you have a great time on your chosen stag party activity.
Add all this to the bunch of mates that go with you on the stag party and you’re in for an unforgettable weekend. You’ll be talking about it for years to come gents.
