We’re Kings of planning the Last Minute Stag

We're Kings of planning the Last Minute Stag Who are we kidding lads. As a gender, planning is not high up on our skills list in general. We have the ability to name football team sheets from years gone by, turn random games into drinking games and have the fantastic ability to show our love to friends by mocking them incessantly. So, it's no real surprise that with all the mockings and the attention to detail you put into that daily, that you'd forget to actually plan something for a mates stag. But no fear StagParty.ie is here and We're Kings of planning the Last Minute Stag! Joking aside lads, there is a few reasons for leaving the Stag Party preparations until late in the day. Lads not confirming there attendance or potential attendance for a weekend of laughing, messing and drinking. I can't for the life of me think why you wouldn't be in for that. But also there may be no one tasked with the job of planning it, disputing what activity to do, where to go and when. All valid reasons but when you're 6 weeks out from the big day, nothing booked and fearing that if you leave it any closer the groom will be in a cruel condition on the day give us a call. Here's a few reasons why: Location Options: We have so many locations for you to choose from for your Stag Party lads. If you fancy keeping it local, fancy a spin or board a plane and he head abroad. We have a Stag Party location to suit anyone. Activity Options: We have an extensive amount of Stag Party activities on offer, (which you can see in full here), that are almost all available all over Ireland, the UK and Europe. Unfortunately, activities like the Connemara pub tour is kinda restricted to that location Accommodation Options: One other thing we offer is a variety of fantastic accommodation options for any type of budgets. We work with great suppliers over the years and are sure to squeeze a Stag Party group in for us if it's a last minute thing. But we'll make sure you get to choose from a hostel just to throw your head on a pillow to get a few hours before getting stuck into another day with the lads. To excellent hotels that will allow you to relax and party in style at the same time. Nightlife: We also make sure on our stags, be it a last minute stag or not, has a some finger food and shots in bar to set you up for the night. Followed by entry to a club and another round of shots to get those legs moving on the dancefloor. So, there you have it lads. Don't worry if you haven't booked a single thing for the Stag Party weekend. Just give us a call on 051-390383 or email us on info@stagparty.ie and we'll sort an incredible stag in super quick time!

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.

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 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.

The Football Drinking Game

The Football Drinking Game A good stag party weekend should include a good drinking game. The chances are over the course of the weekend you'll take in a game of football in the pub. So, as you start into your first few pints why not also spend the next 90 mins or so playing the football drinking game!

So, drink when the following happens Throw In = 1 drink Free Kick = 1 drink Decent Cross = 2 drinks Yellow Card = 2 drinks Red Card = 3 drinks Goal = Down the pint! Penalty = 3 drinks Corner = 1 drink Offside = 1 drink Save = 1 drink Individual piece of skill = 3 drinks Shot of fan shouting what the team should be doing = 1 drink Shot of manager throwing his arms around in some vague way to describe tactics = 2 drinks Dive = 1 drink Injury = 2 drinks Sub = 2 drinks Goal kick = 1 drink Save off the line = 3 drinks Goal disallowed = 3 drinks Big clean tackle = 2 drinks Hits the post = 2 drinks Hits the crossbar = 3 drinks Fighting = 3 drinks Streaker = Down a full pint When the commentator or pundit says: "A game of 2 halves" = 3 drinks "Fantastic" = 2 drinks "How did he miss that" = 2 drinks "Incredible" = 1 drink "At the end of the day" = 1 drink "He's through" = 1 drink Bonus round If you over hear anyone in the bar make a over generalized comment about football, a particular team, player, or sprouts some stats the just got from reading a tweet earlier. That equals 3 drinks. So, there you have it lads. The Football Drinking Game to take the game of football you're watching in the pub on your stag to a whole new level.

Witty And Funny Best Man Speech Openers

Witty And Funny Best Man Speech Openers The Best Man has a lot to contend with. He's the guy leading all the stag party planning with our goodselves of course. But, he also has the daunting task of delivering a funny, witty, side splitting best man speech that also doesn't offend anyone or see himself being shipped off in an early taxi home. With an great speech it's all about reeling them in at the start. So here a few Witty And Funny Best Man Speech Openers to warm up the crowd! "Before I start ladies and gentleman. The bride and groom have kindly asked me to remove from my speech anything that resembles an innuendo. I may have missed some, so If I come across anything risque, I'll make sure to whip it out straight away" "I'll just get a few formalities out of the way to start with ladies and gentleman. First off, if you have your mobile phone...keep it switched on and keep yourself entertained during this speech. Secondly, should anyone get a text with a good joke in it. Please do forward it on." "Good Afternoon Ladies and Gentleman. I'm here to deliver a speech about the Groom. However, what can I say about him that hasn't already been a topic on the Jeremy Kyle show?" "Evening all, it's been an emotional day so far...even the cake is in tiers" “Good evening everyone. The bride and groom have asked that I don’t talk about the Stag Party weekend, some of the groom’s mishaps, embarrassing moments or ex-girlfriends. So, that’s all from me, thanks all for listening!” "Everyone knows that the bride is looking stunning today. She's a wonderful woman and we can all agree she deserves the perfect man. Sadly, you don't always get what you deserve!" "Evening all, I'm the Best Man. I'm not much of a public speaker to be honest. So, if you see me looking down at this piece of paper. I'm not checking notes, it's actually a picture of the drink I'm going to have afterwards" "Being asked to be the Best Man is kinda like being called for jury duty. You don't really want to do it but you know you have too. You also have to dress up smartly and let's be honest pretend to be an upstanding member of the community. The only things is that I had no say in the life sentence given out today." "Those of you that know me, know that I'm not real big on speeches"...(Sit down) "Evening all, where do I start... (Grooms name) met the love of his life 20 years ago, when he met me" "Hi everyone. (Grooms Name) didn't have an easy decision in choosing his best man. First, he called his most charming friend, and he said no. Second, he called his most trusted and smartest friend. He said no too. Then, he asked his most good looking friend, and he also said no. Then he gave me a call, and I said (Grooms Name), there is now way I can say no to you four times." "One morning I found out that I was going to be the best man at my best friend's wedding. That wedding isn't until next summer! So, I agreed to be in this one for practice" Hopefully, these will help break the ice when you kick off your Best Man speech.

The Emotions You’ll Go Through Playing Footgolf On The Stag

The Emotions You'll Go Through Playing Footgolf On The Stag We've all seen pro golfers capitulate on the biggest stage. Their emotions getting the better of them at key moments. I'm sure it may have even happened to you as you recreated a masters moment on some golf course in the middle of no where on a soggy Sunday morning. The glaring eyes of mates are enough to affect your emotional state and game. Now I'll be the first to say that I'm awful at golf. But, I am well able to kick a football so I thought a round of Footgolf in the Pococke Golf Centre in Kilkenny would prepare me ahead of an upcoming Stag Party weekend. Oh, I was wrong lads...Here are The Emotions You'll Go Through Playing Footgolf On The Stag! So, I'll go through the emotions you'll experience lads from the beginning until the end. First up... Anxiety This will hit you right about the time your sobering up from the first night on a Stag Party. You'll be on route to the Footgolf course, which is only 5 mins from Kilkenny City, and the anxiety will slowly start to creep in. You'll be thinking of that first kick or drive. Hoping you hit it straight. Or don't slip, fall or even miss the ball completely. Panic Next, you'll begin to panic as you've realised that someone has brought football boots. Should I have brought my boots? Will I have stable footing? Am I missing out on a better touch without my boots? Oh, how I wish I had a can right now. I was happy to hear though. To make it a level playing field, the lads insist on no football boots! Confidence Your early fears, anxiety and panic swiftly leave once you hit that first good drive. When you place the football down and lash it straight up the fairway. You begin to believe that this version of the game is the one for you. You'll leave the tee box with a swagger of man who has so much ability that he could hit a hole in one if he really wanted to. He just enjoys a contest. Anger You over shoot the green and there's a hill on the other side. Physics and gravity take over and that football starts a rolling. It's at this time your inner Hulk looks to break out and scream bloody murder. Often you'll even see steam coming from some guys ears. Yips, Nerves and Jitters Just after you've regained your mojo. It's time to step up and sink a monster putt. But, the lads are watching. Eyes bearing down. Thankfully I wasn't in Fancy Dress, (which is allowed on the course, and the lads love a few pics for their Facebook & Instagram accounts). But the mocking and slagging ensues and you begin to feel that little twitch in that trusty right leg of yours. Will you be able to hold your nerve on this stag party activity? Agony This can be summed up in that moment you try to sink a big putt and the ball just rounds the edge of the hole. It was in for just a brief second but is now costing you another shot. The rush as you think it's in and the agony after you miss would lead a man to drink. Luckily if you're on a stag, you will be hitting the pub shortly after this stag party activity! Elation or Happiness You're smiling from ear to ear. You're in with a shout of actually winning the round of Footgolf on the stag party weekend! Free pints for the winner usually delivers that focus and happiness. Let's be honest lads, got to love a little friendly competition and if you can one up a mate. All the better. You'll get to slag him for the evening! Depression or Sadness You've chocked and your final score looks more like you were attempting a maximum in darts than a low score in golf. You now have to watch as the winner collects the plaudits and begins unloading all the slagging he can think of. It's about this time you understand why the Golf Course pub is located so close to the 18th! To the pub! So, there you have it lads, The Emotions You'll Go Through Playing Footgolf On The Stag! Regardless if you can keep your emotions in check or not you're in for one hell of time with a trip to Pococke Golf Centre and with Footgolf as your stag party activity!

The Benefits Of Drinking Beer On The Stag Party

The Benefits Of Drinking Beer On The Stag Party There are plenty of reports and research papers about the benefits of drinking beer. It has been show to to help reduce the risk of heart disease, can help prevent kidney stones, lower risk of diabetes and even help minimize the risk of cancer. It's amazing stuff really! But, it got me thinking about the benefits of drinking beer for stag parties. So here we go lads, just some of The Benefits Of Drinking Beer On The Stag Party! Confidence First on the list of the benefits of drinking beer is 'confidence'. There's no getting away from it but beer makes us all a little bit more confident. It has shown to give us some 'dutch courage' and may be the reason you actually have a girlfriend, fiancé or even wife. It loosens the lips and with every sip the nerves seem to flow away. This confidence also transfers over into those sports stories you would be sprouting over the course of the stag weekend. Like how you scored a length of the field try. But, your're actually a prop and it was a 3 yard fall over the line job. Or that you still reckon you have what it takes to be called up to the Irish football team. Finally, confidence that you've received from the pints you've been knocking back on the stag party weekend. Is the reason why you think you can knock back 5 shots of tequila and still say "I'm grand" afterwards. Injury Prevention Next on our list is the benefits beer brings to injury prevention on the stag party weekend. You might be scratching your head at this one lads. We've all been in the situation where we've had too much to drink and either fall down or over something and wake up with strange bruises the following day. This is all true but think for a second about the amount of times or stories you've heard. That because he was drunk he didn't feel it or was a bit looser when he fell. On a stag party weekend when you're taking on activities like paintball, a few beers the night before maybe the reason you don't feel the paintballs as much. But, if you're useless at paintball and are being bombarded by 100's of paintballs. I think you're on your own. The beer will actually decide to feck off too. It's call sobering up! Improves Sleep Another benefit of drinking beer on the stag party weekend is that it improves sleep. The first night of the stag you'll hit the sauce hard. Let's not kid ourselves. But when you eventually hit the hay in the early hours. You do so knowing you need to be up for the second day of the stag party and a stag party activity. The drinking of beer ensures your sleep is deep, very deep. You'll be out for the count. This deep sleep will help improve energy levels the following day on the stag party and have your raring to go for a great activity with the lads. Helps With Dandruff No one likes the look of dandruff regardless if you're on a stag party weekend or just chilling at home. But beer has been shown to help stop dandruff. So, on the stag do, don't worry if one of the lads pours a beer on your head. Or, if you fall asleep with beer in hand and pour it all over yourself. It's actually beneficial. Treat your mane of hair to a beer lads! Improves Lower Limb Movement Let's be honest, more beer into your system equals more questionable shapes on the dancefloor. Men's dancing skills on a stag party weekend can be directly linked to their consumption of beer. Basically, going zero before beer. To thinking their John Travolta in the club. If it wasn't for beer, we all wouldn't have great videos of our mates making a show of themselves on the stag party weekend. Increases Appetite Another benefit of drinking beer is the power it delivers to your appetite. After a day of drinking on the stag party. You'll make a straight shot after the club to the nearest takeaway and proceed to order everything on the menu to satisfy your hunger. You'll finish it all and still not be satisfied but the urge for bed will be too strong.

The Stag Party Football Team

The Stag Party Football Team I'm not going to lie lads. I'm huge a sports nut and when I'm not in the office, I'm either watching, reading about or playing sport. So, it struck me over the weekend if a Stag Party was a Football team. What would each position mean or contribute to the Stag Party weekend. Here's my starting eleven for the Stag Party Football Team. It's a 4-4-2 of course! Goalkeeper We'll start with the man minding the net. Typically a big guy with a very safe pair of hands. He'll save guys from making a total arse of themselves when he can. But, more importantly, those safe pair of hands will come in handy getting the rounds in the pub on the stag party weekend. No one wants to see any dropped pints. Left Back As Carragher once said on Monday night football. Most left backs are failed wingers. We've all played with a left back who loves to bomb on, (with ball or pint in hand), when he can and leave the rest of us wondering where he's off too. He's the guy in your stag party group that will go missing at varying points on a night out. However, it's this sense of football and drinking adventure that will lead to one or two moments of magic on the stag weekend. Centre Back Our first centre back is the enforcer. On a stag this is more than likely the Best Man. He's the one dictating the pace, when to go for the stag party activity and ensuring all stag party drinking rules are being adhered too. You don't want to cross this guy on the stag. You could end up having to do a forfeit. Centre Back The second of our centre backs is another big lump. You won't see him move much. In fact he's usually the guy who takes the one step forward to play guys offside. Or, takes a step to avoid one of the lads vomiting on the stag party. He's a smart football player and a smart drinker. He'll be consistent throughout the entire stag party weekend session. You'll never see him without a pint. Right Back He sits quietly in the corner not particularly doing much. Both on the pitch and in the pub. He'll tip away with the pints over the course of the stag. Not really bringing huge attention to himself. But don't under estimate this guy. He'll have your back and possibly get you out of jail a few times on the pitch, on a night out and will probably be the guy who brings your drunk ass home at the end of the night. Solid player, solid drinker and solid lad! We're into the midfield! Left Wing With any good winger. You have to have speed. This guy will be racing up and down the pitch all day in a brave attempt to some how unlock his inner Ryan Giggs. This guy on the stag party will also bring that speed and pace to his drinking. We all know someone that fly's through pints on a night out. Only time will tell how he'll get on over the course of the stag weekend. Nonetheless, he'll bring excitement and energy to the stag and that's a big plus in my books. Defensive Midfield He makes sure nothing gets past him on a Stag weekend. Lads don't get to go on walkabout or decide to do their own thing. It's a stag weekend after all. During an actual match he always seems to be the guy who gets a head on it. He'll also be the one who puts his head in a dangerous areas. He puts his body on the line for his mates and if that means downing a record number of shots. Or even trying one of ridiculous Stag Vs Food challenges he'll do it. Attacking Midfield The attacking midfield in the stag party football team is a key position. He pops up all across the park with some delightful touches to help everyone. He also jumps in with a few brilliant jokes or put downs. Because we all mock each other. And of course he's some man for a drinking game. His attacking midfielder mindset sets him in the go hard or go home frame of mind. He'll have all the stag party games and will be the reason the stag party is motoring all through the weekend. Right Wing On the pitch he steps back inside and takes shots from everywhere. On the stag party weekend...he steps back inside and takes shots from everywhere! Striker This striker is a bit of hit with the ladies. On and off the pitch he's a bit flashy and always thinks he's a hit with the ladies. Actually he'll have more interest in the women then pints when he gets to the club. An all round talent who can score from anywhere and go toe-to-toe with any guy drinking. Striker (c) Lastly, our final striker and captain, has to be the Stag himself really. It is his stag party weekend after all. Like any good striker he just bangs in the goals. Nothing flashy just gets them in any way he can. And, like any good groom on his stag party weekend he'll have to bang in pint after pint after pint. In anyway he can. Because he's in for one hell of weekend with the lads. So there you have it lads. The starting eleven for the Stag Party Football Team! What formation and tactics that you chose for the stag party weekend is all up to you. But, I'd take the attacking midfielders mindset. Go hard or go home! Finally, if you're interest in organising your own stag party weekend.
