It's Dublin, it's one of the best, most hospitable, friendliest, exciting cities on the planet; making it all the more appealing as a short break, stag trip. Ireland's had a topsy-turvy time over the last few years but its unique capital's remained consistent and a shoe-in bucket list place to visit. If you haven't been for a weekend at you really have to, it's enlivening and for a stag do Dublin sets a standard that's hard to beat. All of that's even before we've started on the activities and nightlife, gents you're in for an amazing trip.
You can expect to have a great time year round, it's as reliable as a Rolex. The climate’s very similar to our own and the various seasons bringing different benefits to the city’s visitors. In winter it’s the joy of holing up in the cosy, charismatic pubs and amazing bars, enjoying fantastic food and taking on a few easy activities. Christmas is also a fine time with a lit up Grafton Street and a busy waterside market. In January the new year party continues with the Temple Bar TradFest later in the month. Spring is big for rugby and of course the Six Nations, it also brings the arrival of arguably Ireland’s most famous festival – St Patrick’s Day (March 17), you won’t be surprised to read the party tends to spill over for a couple of days. Mid March celebrations, closely followed by the clocks going forward enthusiastically herald the start of a long summer, Spring through to Autumn is a great time to visit for the weekend. Events and festivals run through the calendar year but a couple of the big events you may be interested in are the Fringe Festival (September) and Oktoberfest (October). Dublin’s got that extra special quality that makes it memorable and exciting place to visit anytime, especially for a stag do. Even when it rains it doesn’t dampen the spirits!
The obvious and most cost efficient way is early booking via the budget airlines, RyanAir in particular have numerous flights daily but don't overlook Aer Lingus, Aer Arann and Flybe. It's very easy, literally up and down, so if you travel light and check in online in advance travelling should be over pretty quickly. The speed of travel could be a welcome factor if you want to go international for the stag weekend but keep the travelling to a minimum. You could also consider the ferry and it could be cheaper with a hired minibus and a crossing fare but it takes a lot longer so we reckon it's only really a worthwhile option if you're up for a road trip.
The city, split by the River Liffey into North and South sides, is a good size but it's easy to get around so as long as you're fairly central you'll be fine, however we reckon the best location to base yourselves for the Dublin stag do is close to world famous Temple Bar with its wealth of pubs, bars, clubs and more. Other locations to look out for are St Stephen's Green, Merrion Square, O'Connell Street, Capel Street and Christchurch. In terms of pubs you'll do well to find a better collection, the Irish do pubs every bit as well as the UK and in many cases better, and Dublin's got a few world beaters. Like all modern European Capitals the bars and the restaurants are excellent and there are plenty of additional venues to enjoy during the weekend, visit Dublin for the stag do and you're genuinely spoilt for choice.
In keeping with a big Capital you can choose from an impressive selection of activities. As mentioned above you’ve got some outstanding horse racing and massive fixtures, each of the five big courses (namely Curragh, Leopardstown, Fairyhouse, Naas and Punchestown) offer some huge, impressive events. (See our Dublin stag do horse racing packages which we tailor to suit). It’s very exciting to get up, head out for breakfast, a Guinness and a cheeky 9 holes and then get picked up for one of the best horse racing events you’ll ever go to - that’s a big stag day. As you’d expect the golf can be outstanding so it’s well worth considering as part of a weekend itinerary, it acts as both a freshener and an activity to allow the pace to run a touch more gently for at least a couple of hours. It’s also a very agreeable way to finish off the trip. Then of course you’ve got to make time for a pilgrimage to the Guinness Brewery or you could choose a whiskey distillery instead, why not do both! We’ve got close to 30 recommended stag activities listed but a couple of others worth special mention for an active group are the sea fishing and the ribbing, not least because the Irish sea air should fix any hangovers. Gents rest assured the stag action is good, plan it well and you won’t be disappointed.
For a long time Dublin was scaling up and starting to get a tad on the expensive side, however over the last couple of years it's settled down to be better value than it has been, bottom line it's a great time to visit. Most groups go for the bespoke route for their Dublin stag do but we also have weekend packages starting at as little as £79 / €95 for a 1 night stay and busy itinerary or from £115 / €139 for 2 nights. Generally groups tend to pitch around the £200-250 / €240-300 mark and we build a Dublin stag do to suit. Planning your weekend in advance and leaving all the running around to us means you’ll end up saving both time and money.
