A Guide To Your Galway Stag Weekend

Where to Drink in Galway

It's a taste of tradition in Ireland, yeah, but we know what you really want to taste is the beeeeeeeeeer. On the cobbled streets, you'll find corner pubs that offer something that the bigger Irish cities can't - that proper local, friendly feel. Live music is always blaring from the door of at least one establishment, so it's time to try your hand at a classic Irish jig!

The Latin Quarter is where to head. You can't move for cosy looking pubs and it's sheer heaven for stag groups. A great place to kickstart a bar crawl.

"If it's drowning you're after, don't torment yourself with shallow water."
- Irish Drinking Proverb.

Where to Head...


Galway's Latin Quarter is home to the city's best bars, pubs and clubs. Never failing to bring in huge, lively crowds of party-goers, this colourful and vibrant nightlife hub that's packed with independent local haunts delivers epic night out after epic night out.

Must see...

We're all for getting involved in local traditions, which is why you should follow in the footsteps of countless Galwegians and dive of the famous Salthill diving boards into the freezing Atlantic Ocean below. It's a local tradition and we have no idea why, but it's top-notch banter when one of the lads ducks out at the last minute.

Pub Trivia

Galway County has the longest place name in Ireland, Muckanaghederdauhaulia.
Laurence of Arabia's Peter O'Toole was born in Galway.
Charles I was executed by a Galway soldier...
He was rewarded with property, which is where the King's Head pub now stands.

A Taste of Galway

Eats - As a coastal city that hosts a world-renowned international oyster and seafood festival the stag would do well to sample some of the bay's incredible seafood, even if it's fish and chips. Mc Donagh's serves up some of the best fish in Ireland.

Drinks - Galway Bay brewery make up some epic beers including an 8.5% double IPA, a chocolate milk stout and an Irish red ale. Beer loving stag's should seek out any and all of these mean brews.

Getting Around Galway

Galway is a compact and small city, and even some of its further afield attractions are no more than a twenty-minute walk from the city centre. If the boys are in a hurry or want to save their feet for the inevitable dad dancing later on then the city and county bus services will have routes to anywhere you're likely to want to go and fares are reasonable.

The city has plenty of Boris Johnson inspired bike rental kiosks that make cycling around the city easy and affordable whenever you feel like a pedal.

Why choose a Galway stag do?

Galway, gentlemen - It's been voted "one of the sexiest cities on the planet" by MSN Travel... need we say more?

Well, we could also tell you that Galway is one of the fastest-growing cities in Europe - meaning more great restaurants, bars, pubs and clubs than ever before. And we should probably (definitely) mention that the stunning coastal town, which is ranked as one of the top 50 tourist destinations in the world, finds itself home to more than 60 of the best pubs in Europe - it is an absolute mecca of traditional Irish music and culture and boasts mountains, gorges, great beaches and the Atlantic as its backyard. If ever there was a destination tailor-made to send your main man off in truly awesome style (and propel you to the heights of Best Man superstardom in the process), Galway is it!

So when should we go?

The summer months bring the best of Galway's weather to the table, when temperatures hit the heights and you'll find the sun shining down on the great city until 11pm. Perfect for kicking back with a cold one while you and the boys soak up the buzzing vibe and all-out 'Irishness' the city is famously proud to stand for. But... any time is party time in this thriving coastal town! Live music pumps out of the pubs and onto the streets every weekend, and the city throws open its doors and raises a mighty 'Slainte!' with a jam-packed calendar of parties, festivals and events. From the Fringe, St Patrick's and Continental Market festivities to TedFest, the International Rally and the world-famous Oyster Festival, dubbed 'one of the 12 greatest shows on earth', where great food, great music and GREAT Guinness are the order of the day (and night!). So with a little planning, you're set for a Galway stag do of epic proportions any time of the year. Cheers indeed, gents!

Ok, but how do we get there?

Solid links in all directions mean the city is easily accessible by car, plane, train, coach, bus or ferry, with a whole heap of services on offer right across the UK. So however disorganised your rabble may be, getting them safely to your Galway stag do will be a cinch. Flights are available from all major cities and will find you in Ireland in a little over an hour, with regular bus services between Shannon Airport and the city centre. Galway is well linked to the rest of Ireland by three primary roads: the N16 (east), N17 (north) and N18 (south), making driving an easy option.

And where should we be heading?

The short answer here, gents, is... anywhere! This destination has it all! Waterparks don't get much bigger than the mighty Atlantic, landscapes don't come much better than Connemara National Park, and as for the city itself? History, culture, nightlife, entertainment and Guinness spill through its streets in spades! Head to the city centre for Eyre Square and its chic bars, traditional taverns and street performers, or take in a spot of culture at the cathedral or Lynch Castle. You'll find some of the city's oldest bars and best showings of traditional music in the Latin Quarter, and a slower pace of life if you head south-west, where the River Corrib and Atlantic converge in the shadow of the Spanish Arch. And for some good old fashioned sea air, you can't beat a trip to Salthill's infamous 'Prom' and splendid Blackrock beach, which also houses Ireland's National Aquarium.

If it's Galway stag action we want?

You'll be minutes from the Atlantic one way and have mountainous valleys in the other, so Ireland's west coast is an absolute blinder when it comes to injecting some adventure into your Galway stag party. Make no mistake, gents, there's nothing small about the rugged backdrop to this charming city and it brings adrenaline-fuelled activities to the extreme. Try your hand at the zip wire, mountaineering or gorge walking, where you'll hit the highs, get the testosterone flowing and take in some spectacular sights along the way. Or make for the bracing Atlantic waves for some deep sea fishing which is sure to blow the cobwebs (and any last traces of hangovers) away. For some traditional stag activities in Galway, check out the largest outdoor go kart circuit in Europe, which is within an hour's reach of ten of the finest golf courses in the west of Ireland.
