If you’re looking for something a little wilder, why not join the Geordies in the party capital of the north-east! Famous (or maybe infamous) for its incredible nightlife, the Toon is host to some of the best bars in the country. There’s a reason Newcastle is so popular, and it’s consistently rated among the best nights out in the UK! The Quayside’s home to some of the liveliest bars in the city. Head deeper into Newcastle and you’ll also find beautiful old pubs, quirky cocktail bars and underground comedy clubs.


Why not enjoy your stag or hen do in the biggest city in the world? It just keeps Dublin and Dublin! The home of Arthur Guinness himself, the Guinness Factory tour should definitely be on the agenda of any party in the capital of the Republic of Ireland. On top of the quintessential Dublin experience, there’s a huge range of activities, from bubble football and go karting, to clay pigeon shooting. Renowned for its incredible nightlife, you’ll always hear some great live music in the city centre, with the best quality Guinness flowing on tap.


Fancy something a little more lavish? Luxury villas, hotels and cocktails by the pool are the name of the game in Marbella. If relaxing by the pool and catching some rays is more your speed, you’ll have an amazing time at this beautiful coastal resort. For those of you who want to turn it up a notch, Marbella lets you go from poolside parties to some great clubs, right on the beach. You’ll find plenty of boat parties, flamenco dances and bar tours to spice up your holiday in the sun!


Some claim Budapest as the top stag do location in Europe – and for good reason! From outdoor go karting to boozy bar tours, there’s plenty to do in this great city. Budapest is also famous for its luscious spas and bath houses. If that sounds too slow paced for you, some of these even turn into overnight spa parties – or sparties! With beautiful sights to see during the day, traditional Hungarian food to taste, and plenty of places to enjoy a tipple, Budapest is ideal for all kinds of stag and hen dos!

Las Vegas

The big daddy of stags and big momma of hens – if you’re really going all out, there’s no alternative to the one and only Las Vegas! Take a trip to some of the world’s biggest and best casinos, and have a bar crawl like no other. Head to a shooting range, try indoor sky diving or head on a quad tour. The possibilities are endless! But no trip to Vegas is complete without a tour across the Grand Canyon!
