a little more about Cork stag weekends
Cork provides a striking setting for legendary stag activities and a big night discovering the craic. The city, country and sea are all rolled into one at this fantastic destination - there’s something for all the boys at this stag destination.
Kiss the Blarney Stone and learn from the Corkonians how to get ‘the gift of the gab’, before exploring the many shops, pubs and bars. Since investing 4 billion Euros on developing the Irish Tourism Industry and the Economist declared Ireland the number one place to live, Cork has been renewed as a lively, exciting place to visit (note that many locals call it “the real capital of Ireland”.) It was also voted among the top 10 best cities to visit in Lonely Planet’s 2010 ‘Best in Travel’ awards - the guide said that ‘Cork is at the top of its game right now: sophisticated, vibrant and diverse, while still retaining its friendliness, relaxed charm and quick-fire wit.’
There’s a huge range of options for keeping the boys busy over a weekend in this Irish city. You can start Saturday with a paintball session at the best paintballing venue in Cork, before trying your hands at quad biking. In keeping with your high-adrenaline morning in the afternoon you can all embark on some go karting - with computerised digital lap timing, international specification karts, a fully floodlit circuit and expert instructors. To finish off your stag afternoon you can all cruise over to a local distillery for a tour - the perfect way to relax after all of the high speed sporting. Once you’ve had a private tasting and a fact-packed tour it’s time to head back to the hotel to get ready for your big Cork stag night.
To set the pace for a top quality night we’ll organise a table for you at one of the excellent restaurants in the city, followed by tickets to a performance at a nearby comedy club - you’ll have some belly-aching laughs to up-and-coming comedic talent. After that we’ll pre-arrange your entry to an excellent lap dancing club where you’ll get a show to remember, before ending the night with guestlist nightclubbing at one of the best clubs in Cork.
Overall Cork has something for everyone, whether you’re looking for a relaxed weekend or an epic night out.
