Stag Party: Why You Should Go Abroad

Ireland is home to a lot of incredible locations and they’re all perfectly suited to host a Stag Party. From a massive range of activities to a lot of places to eat and drink. Ireland has it all when it comes to what you need for the perfect Stag Party. But sometimes Ireland doesn’t have everything you want and you want things that it can’t really give you. That’s why we’re here to tell you that if this sounds like you, then maybe a Stag Party abroad would suit you better. So here’s Why You Should Go Abroad for your Stag Party.   Nice Weather - Why You Should Go Abroad Sometimes in Ireland we get lucky and have a few days of scorching sun during the summer. And other than the rain getting warmer, that’s pretty much the only real summer time we get. Sometimes that’s not good enough and we might want to have our Stag Party in a country that has more good weather than bad. Places like Barcelona, Prague, Marbella, etc. These places almost guarantee good weather no matter what time of year you go. So they’re a much safer bet if good weather is something you’re looking for.   Nobody Knows You One of the benefits of going abroad is that nobody over there will know you. But remember! As the saying goes, it’s a small world so bumping into someone you know is always a possibility no matter where you go. The likeliness of that happening is pretty slim though so you’ll almost certainly fly under the radar in a foreign country. Perfect if you want to have a chilled but fun time away with the lads.   Ireland Doesn’t Have Every Activity One of the key parts of a Stag Party is the activity. Ireland has a massive selection of activities ranging from Paintballing to Karting, Archery Tag, Laser Tag, Surfing and many more. But it doesn’t have all of them. Some of the ones that Ireland misses out on are Cross Country Skiing, Bobsledding, a Parachute Jump, and one of our all time favourites...Tank Driving! Tank Driving is such a fantastic experience that even if it’s the only thing you do on the Stag Party, it makes the trip abroad worth it.   Cheaper Alcohol - Why You Should Go Abroad Yep, this is also a very big piece of the Stag Party. You know you’ll want to have a few drinks on your Stag Party, so why not go somewhere that’ll give you the drinks cheaper. Granted, the cost of the flight practically cancels out the money you save on cheaper beers, but drinking in a foreign bar can be a different experience. What would you prefer more?   So lads, we think these are some of the reasons as to why you should go abroad for your Stag Party. Like we said above, Ireland is fantastic and we’re not putting it down because having an Irish Stag Party is incredible for its own reasons. But sometimes a trip abroad is exactly what your group needs. So if you need any information on locations abroad you can email us on info@stagparty.ie and we’ll help you out.   You can also check out our website and follow us on Facebook for more.

The Nightlife in Albufeira

The Nightlife in Albufeira There is just an endless amount of good things to say about Albufeira. During the day this sunny coastal city in the heart of the Algarve, Portugal. It's a fantastic place to sunbathe on some of the country's most wonderful beaches and of course to explore the streets of the old town. When the sun finally sets on Albufeira, the city takes on a whole new personality. The nightlife in Albufeira can be described as bright vivid colours splashed on a sophisticated background. There are plenty of beachfront restaurants to suit any budget. And it's always a good call to get some food in before a big night out. As the dark of the night truly settles over this city. You'll find that many of the locals and holiday makers will make their way to the main square in the old town called Largo Eng.º Duarte Pacheco. This is where you'll find some great street performance artists and musicians. Entertaining the passers by or those who have stopped for a beer. Rua Cândido dos Reis and Cais Herculano are also great options for those looking for some lively bars and clubs to kick start the night. But, if you're on a Stag party weekend in Albufeira then there really is no escaping The Strip. It's the place to be really. The first thing you'll notice about the Strip is all the multi-coloured lights hanging from every bar and club across the avenue. The second thing you'll notice is all the people going from bar to bar. A great place for any stag party pub crawl and maybe a round of Pub Golf. Most of the bars and clubs have a similar mantra which is to satisfy everyone's needs for a unforgettable night out. The Strip also welcomes Dj's from all over the world weekly to play the latest hits, live performances and even host drink contests. The perfect recipe really for anyone strolling up and down the Strip looking for some fun and a great night. The atmosphere will suck you in. If you're worried they might not be stag party friendly, then don't be. You'll find plenty of stag and hen parties on the Strip with bars welcoming them in to prove they have the best happy hour. This is an area for those lively groups and those on a party holiday. You'll really will be spoiled for choice in Albufiera on a night out. As you can imagine with so many great pubs and clubs so close together. Each wants to stand out from the crowd. You could head to a Foam party. If you've never been to one, I highly recommend you get to one at your earliest opportunity. They are fantastic craic. You'll find bars doing ridiculous deals on jelly shots and even hosting some boat races. You really don't get that back in Ireland. You can also test your bravery and strength and take on the Rodeo Bull. If even you don't go on, it's still fun to watch people fly off it in painful fashion. The nightlife in Albufeira carries on early into the morning which means, no being kicked out a 2 in the morning when the party really is only getting started. If you're like me and a bit sports mad and has to catch the game wherever in the world I am. Then you'll be delighted to know Albufeira and in particular the Strip have some of the best sports bars with all the live sport channels. You won't miss a thing, and as soon as the game ends. The DJ cranks up the music. The beers, cocktails and jelly shots are ordered and what was once a sports bar. Is now one of the best clubs on the strip.
