Dublin is a popular spot for girls’ weekends away, hen dos and birthday trips and it really isn’t hard to see why. There are so many events, attractions and things to do for a group of girls in the city and any trip is sure to be packed with fun and adventure.
If you are thinking of heading to Dublin with your friends, it’s best to have an idea of what type of things you’d like to do during your stay; though spontaneity is important, having a rough plan can also ensure you make any necessary bookings required and ultimately the group doesn’t miss out. Here are some of the best things to do if you’re heading to Dublin with the girls:
See a Show
Dublin has a number of great theatres to choose from, many of which host some of the world’s most famous musicals and shows. Whether you might be interested in seeing a popular show on tour or you want to check out a comedy night, you won’t struggle to find something regardless of when you’re staying in the city. There are actually a lot of hotels near Gaiety Theatre – such as O’Callaghan Stephen’s Green Hotel – which is a great central location for this type of activity.
Enjoy Afternoon Tea
There are a number of impressive afternoon tea options in Dublin, offering a variety of both casual experiences and those that are a little more formal. Tuck into freshly made sandwiches, cakes, a range of teas and maybe even a cocktail or two. The Westbury, The Shelbourne Hotel and The Westin are all popular venues offering delightful afternoon tea experiences. If you’re looking for somewhere to stay whilst you’re in Dublin with your friends, consider O’Callaghan Stephen’s Green Hotel. It’s one of the main hotels near the Gaiety Theatre and is close to many afternoon tea locations.
Tuck Into a Boozy Brunch
Boozy brunches have become extremely popular as of late and Dublin has duly taken note. Chat and laugh with your group of friends, enjoy some of your favourite brunch dishes and wash it down with something alcoholic (and bottomless, if you’re lucky!). Thundercut Alley and Platform 61 are popular brunch locations with locals and tourists alike.
Explore the Nightlife
Dublin is known around the world for its vibrant nightlife; it’s lively, busy and extremely fun. There are a lot of different things to do in the evening in Dublin, so you’re sure to find something that suits what you and your friends enjoy. Choose from traditional pubs, trendy wine or cocktail bars, clubs, pub crawls and live music venues. Temple Bar is a hugely popular area of the city with visitors to socialise for your evening – maybe even into the small hours!
With so much choice of so many things to do during the day and in the evening, Dublin has become one of the top cities to visit on a girls’ weekend.
