Women today are spoilt for choice when it comes to beautiful, interesting and exotic places to go on the lash for a hen night. Here are some Instagram-friendly suggestions that’ll give you a picture-perfect party and many memories to cherish.
They say the Czech capital is the equal of Paris in terms of beauty: it has the stunning Charles Bridge, Prague Castle, Old Town Square, and its maze of cobbled streets is great for exploring.
But just as importantly, Prague is home to some of the very best beer in the world and a busting nightlife that’ll keep you dancing till dawn.
Dingle, Co Kerry, is known for its breath-taking scenery which is almost other-worldly – it’s no coincidence they shot the recent Star Wars movies nearby.
It’s a real hikers’ paradise, you can surf, or kayak out to meet the village’s most famous resident, Fungie the dolphin, who lives in the harbour. Start your evening with traditional music and a pint of stout in the snug in one of the village’s pubs before hitting the local nightspots.
Berlin is quite simply the coolest place in world, with its turbulent history giving way to a famously vibrant cultural scene.
The city is now a finely balanced mixture of grit and glamour, renowned for its cutting-edge architecture and avant-garde art. But it’s the fabulous food and pulsating techno scene which really make it the perfect spot for a hen night.
Nicknamed ‘La Ville Rose’ (the Pink City) after the distinctive pink stone used in many of its buildings, Toulouse is an irresistible backdrop for any hen night.
Sitting on the Garonne river, Toulouse is beautiful and sophisticated, with fine dining and the best of wines. But it’s also a happening, youthful university town, with lively rock, jazz and dance music scenes.
Perhaps the most obvious place in the world for a hen night, but if you’re going to do it, do it right. For a real walk on the wild side, whatever kind of nightlife you’re into, you can’t beat Amsterdam – just make sure to avoid those marauding stag parties!
Nestled on the majestic Danube, Budapest is a naturally scenic place, but much of its beauty is man-made – it’s an architectural marvel.
It’s also the nightlife capital of Eastern Europe – and if that’s not enough it’s got an abundance of hot springs. People have been ‘taking the waters’ since Roman times – and its restorative powers might be useful the morning after your hen night!
Whatever you want from a stylish and exotic hen night, Barcelona has got it. Whether it’s a dip in the Mediterranean, a tour of cultural wonders such as the Sagrada Familia or the Picasso museum, or a nightlife that’s to die for, you and your pals will wish the hen party lasted a month.

The capital of the West of Ireland, Galway is pure charm – it has the untamed scenic beauty of Connemara on its doorstep, and the best pub culture known to womankind in the city centre – on a night out in Galway anything can happen, and probably will.
The Scottish capital is one of Europe’s most beautiful cities, but Edinburgh is also a city that prides itself on being down to earth and unpretentious.
That means it’s a hotbed of loud, crowded pubs, decadent restaurants and raucous nightclubs – which make it a fabulous spot for a hen night.
