We have carefully curated a list of amazing activities in this capital city that you and your party will no doubt enjoy, so sit back, relax and enjoy reading about these exciting companies that very well may be your next holiday destination!
Irish Dance Party
You and your mates have just landed in the beautiful country of Ireland and you want to do something to embrace the Irish way of life? Well Irish Dance Party has you covered with their night full of Irish culture, live music, dancing and comedy!
What they do
Head over to O’Shea’s pub in Talbot street, Dublin, get yourself a glass of bubbly at the bar and watch the amazingly talented dancers perform their traditional Irish dance! You will also be taught some Irish dance steps by their mega talented award winning Irish Dancers and (if you’re feeling brave enough) you can show them off on the dancefloor! In this two hour event you will be treated to a night of amazing entertainment, drinks and a hilarious host who is as funny as he is talented (be prepared for the Bride/Groom to be serenaded by him!), what are you waiting for? Get yourself a pint of Guinness and get ready for a night of fun!

The room is split in half, meaning when you boogie on the dancefloor you will get the opportunity to mingle with the other parties! Who knows, maybe you might leave this show with some friends for life?
It is €25 per person, but if you’re a group of more than ten people it is €22! You book online via their enquiry form (but make sure to check availability for the date you have in mind first!)
Good to Know
You can pay a deposit, the full amount in advance or the remainder of the cost in cash on the day. Just give them a call before booking, let them know what you have in mind and you will be on your way to a night of Celtic entertainment you will never forget!
Are you sick of Stag and Hen’s being held at the same old boring clubs and pubs? If you want your muscles to be sore from a day of rough and tumble football instead of your head being sore from pounding back the shots, head on over to Astropark!
What they do
If you’re stuck with what to do for your Stag and Hen party, then no worries as Astropark’s playing field has everything! Practice your hawk-eyed aim with their archery lessons, tackle your teammates with their NERF wars, have a nostalgia-fest with their old school sports-day style games (such as tug of war and dodgeball), or have an absolute scream playing bubble football!! What on earth is bubble football you may be wondering? Well it’s what it says on the tin really, it’s football but you’re in a giant plastic bubble! No worries about any opponents getting in the way with this game, as you can simply boink them out of the way while being protected in a literal bubble of safety! I’m pretty confident when I say that I think this will be a game you and your mates are never gonna forget.

Has all this working up exercise got you working up an appetite? Well then head into their sportsbar afterwards and grab a bite to eat, drink and if you get there on Saturday, enjoy music played by their live band!
It is a €100 deposit to secure a booking, which is paid by one individual, you can pay the remainder in advance or by card on the day of the activity. The prices for the individual prices, as well as how to book are on their website.
Good to Know
This is the only Bubble Football activity in all of Dublin that also provides archery and refreshments! Also if you are new to the Dublin area and you’re a little nervous about navigating the city, no worries as Astropark will help you organise transport back into town.
