Stag Nights and Weekends in Ashbourne

The last chance to party before the big day

ASHBOURNE WEEKENDS

It's now pretty common for a Ashbourne stag party to last for more than one evening, hence the increase of stag weekends. It seems as if the event gets longer and longer with every new generation! To take advantage in this rise in popularity, there are now many stag busineses dedicated to making things easier for the best man. But obviously they will charge a premium for arranging it all.

STAG WEEKEND IDEAS

Since you're on our site we assume you need to think about the stag weekend. That's going to include everything from setting the date and location, organising the activities and entertainment, and of course keeping the groom somewhere between sober and hammered. This site focuses on the best ideas for things to do as well as things to buy to liven up the Ashbourne stag do.

What goes on tour, stays on tour...

There are so many great things to do on a stag weekend, including Drive a supercar, Fishing, tennis, golf and kayaking. If you're planning a stag weekend for the groom, make sure you know what he likes, and more importantly doesnt like. Sky diving might be great fun for you, but if you suddenly discover the groom has a pathalogical fear of heights...

Not all of these are available in Ashbourne so you may want to consider other locations. The most dangerous food a man can eat is wedding cake


Get ready for a great Ashbourne stag weekend, or at least a brilliant night!

The fun should absolutely not stop after the day activities, those are just the warm up act! For many years the sum total of a stag event would be a trip to a pub. The more exciting ones might include a tour of several.

Other ideas include visiting a comedy club, and of course in most major cities you can now also find a strip club - and they are often able to set up special moments for the stag!

The key ingredients are the stag, best man, alcohol, fun and some girls

TOP STAG WEEKEND TIPS

Here are some top tips for planning and running your Ashbourne stag weekend or stag party.

STAG DO HINTS


Think about the little things, such as cameras with batteries. Yes, it's easy to use camera phones, but it's also very easy to start emailing inappropriate photos around when the beer is flowing. Also make sure that there's a good breakfast planned, and that any driving happens in the afternoon not the morning - since there's likely to be plenty of alcohol left in everyone's body!

And please please please make sure that you and the other guests know that it's entirely inappropriate to talk about the specifics of the stag at any point during the wedding, even if you're certain no-one else is listening.

TRAVELLING STAG


It wasn't long ago that a stag weekend outside of the UK was seen as incredibly unusual, but with the arrival of cheap international flights (as well as the Eurostar) it's almost normal.  And there are certainly some unusual stag weekends possible, further away than Ashbourne!


The fun should just never stop on a Ashbourne stag weekend and hopefully you've started to think about fun ways to cause embarrassment for the main man, together with some fun games to play and silly costumes for your big weekend in Ashbourne.

BEST MAN ADVICE


It doesn't matter if you want a quieter and more refined evening or a big big big night out with everyone you've ever met in Ashbourne with a no-holds-barred attitude to everything fun you can think of, maybe you now have some fuel for the ideas.

If you're thinking of a little wilder experience you might want to try places like Talin, Budapest or Prague - they have lots to offer and are pretty good value.

Oh, and one more thing. Please remember to drink responsibly.
