Hen Weekends in Dublin
Flying into Dublin for the weekend? It can be a pain trying to coordinate where everyone has to go, where to get food, spots to get drinks, and where the party is. Being out in Dublin is all about enjoying the craic and embracing the friendly atmosphere, but you don’t want to come the whole way here and end up in a tourist trap (not naming names) or stuck in a bar that feels like you’re back home on a Friday night. You’re here to have a great time and embrace the legendary culture we have to offer. There’s no better way to do that than booking into an authentic Dublin pub that’s been serving the people of this fair city for 70 years now. That pub just happens to be McGowans.
Hen Parties at McGowans
After you’ve sorted out the flights and accommodation, tick one more box and book McGowans for a Hen party. We’re located in Dublin’s northside neighbourhood of Phibsobro/ Phibsborough (us locals call it Phibs). If you’ve booked an Airbnb or apartment nearby, we can help your Hen’s night get off to a ruckus start with a round of daiquiris and gin goblets at the cocktail bar or a few bottles of Prosecco to add a little fizz to affairs.
Daytime Hen Activities in Phibsobro at McGowans
Get everyone suitably set up for the oncoming madness with a group meeting in the pub. We’ll get everyone sorted with something lovely from our menu while the Hen party discuss the night ahead. (if there’s anyone in the party who had dietary requirements, just let us know).
It’s the ideal time for the group to be in one space with a few drinks, have a catch-up and get a good idea of what the plan of action is before the big night out. If it happens to be the first time in Dublin for some of the party, you’ll definitely have to get a round of Guinness in – just remind us to snap that all important group selfie when you cheers.
Night-time Hen Activities in Phibsobro at McGowans
Time Out magazine named Phibs one of the coolest neighbourhoods in the world in 2018 (we were in the top 30!), and we like to think that McGowans is one of the reasons for it, especially when it comes to big nights out.
Weekend nights in McGowans are legendary, especially when Hen parties come to visit. Our legendary nightclub is what a real night in Dublin is all about. We don’t surprise folks with random charges on the door and put up the price of drinks due to location. If you want your Hen to have an authentic night out in Dublin, this is the spot.
