As we reflect on our Most Popular Hen Party Ideas 2019, we felt it was time we wrote a blog article for all our guests to read, especially for those who will be considering Sligo as their hen or stag destination in 2020 or in 2021 and looking for hen party ideas.  So let’s start off with our most popular hen party activity.

1.Sligo Bush Tucker Trials

bush tucker in action The Sligo Bush Tucker Trials was an idea our team came up with late in 2018, we decided to take some of the Bush Tucker Trial challenges from the TV series “I’m a celebrity get me outta here” and put our own slant and ideas on each challenge. When the hen party arrives at the activity location the hen party will be split into two teams.  The host will then invite a member of each team to take part in a number of rounds and Bush Tucker Trial challenges.  During each challenge both teams will go head to head to compete for stars and diamonds, the team with the most diamonds or stars wins. A simple idea turned out to be our most popular hen party ideas in 2019 so popular our bearest competitors have now listed this activity on their own websites.

2. The Cube

The Cube The Cube still remains to be one of our most popular activities at Garavoguehenstag.  Like The Sligo Bush Tucker Trials, The Cube was also taken from the TV show “The Cube”.  The Cube master lines up a round of challenges for each team member of the hen party to go head to head in a challenge. The Cube is without a doubt still a very popular hen party activity and one we highly recommend, especially for the more subtle hen party. Have you and your hen’s have got what it takes to beat The Cube.


3. Gin Yoga 

And last but not least our third most popular hen party ideas in 2019 was our Gin Yoga activity.  With the rise of the Gin craze over the last few years we felt it was important to host a GIN related activity, so our team came up with the Gin Yoga concept.  Gin Yoga first began in Humber Street Distillery in Hull and we immediately fell in love with this new idea. So we decided to include this activity on our website. Yoga can be intimating for some, but our team will help make all of the party as comfortable as possible, there is also a fun element in this activity, all washed down with a tasty Gin & Tonic.  So if you’re looking for an activity with a difference, then we highly recommend you check out our Gin Yoga package.
