Best craic ever! For a truly memorable start to your hen party why not try Bubble Soccer at the Kilkenny Activity Centre? What more fun could you possible have than trying to show off your football skills while your friends bump into you and knock you over. Players can do backflips, dives, rollies or crash right into each other. Anything goes really but watch out if you lose your balance or fall over as you might find yourself stranded upside down…

 

Bubble Soccer is a team game where both teams have to devise a game plan to outscore each other – not an easy task when you the opposition treat you like a human bumper car!

 

Apart from being a great activity as part of any Hen Party package it is quite simply one of the most fun things to do in Kilkenny.

Forget Footgolf — Footdarts is the latest craze for Hen Parties in Kilkenny!

 

Armed with just your football skills step up to the board and see which of your group can get the highest score in “301”, “Around the Clock” or “Shangai”. If you want to get more competitive play team vs team in a game of Chase the Ace or Cricket! You also get the chance to test your Camogie skills in a game of Hurling Darts or try your hand at Archery Darts with our high-powered bows & Velcro arrows.

 

Now introducing the brilliant game of Body Bowling. While in a bubble, participants are rolled towards a set of inflatable pins to see who can knock the most. Just like regular bowling except you’re the ball! Let me hear you shout ‘STRIKE’!

 

That’s an exciting, stress free and super fun combo that all the girls can enjoy!

If you are looking for alternative ideas the “Hell’s Kitchen” Assault Course is one of the best ideas for your Hen Party in Kilkenny. Often likened to “Ireland’s Fittest Family, but more fun!” it consists of a range of obstacles such as climbing walls, crawl nets, trenches, mud and a really fun water slide!

 

The Hens are divided into two teams who have to work together to outdo the opposition while taking on a variety of team building challenges, mental teasers and, of course, the assault course itself. Points are awarded for each successfully completed challenge meaning only the very best team wins!

 

The Assault Course is an activity suitable for all Hen Party  groups looking for a really fun thing to do in Kilkenny. Great as part of a two activity package paired with either Bubble Soccer, Splatball or Paintball.

Splatball is a lower velocity version of Paintball making it an ideal activity to start your Hen Party and not leave us marked and bruised! Splatball is a laugh-a-minute game that offers the same adrenaline pumping thrill of paintball but without the impact meaning it is especially popular with Hen Parties.

 

The group is divided into two teams who must out-think and outgun each other as they duck or dive though the Kilkenny Activity Centre’s Paintball Arenas or simply hide out in the undergrowth to ambush their opponent. Can you ‘Assassinate the President‘ and as the battle heightens will you survive ‘The Hunger Games’?

 

As part of a two activity package, that includes our Assault Course, Splatball is considered one of the most fun things to do in Kilkenny for any Hen party. So don your war paint at the Kilkenny Activity Centre and release your inner Rambo — or Ramboette!

If you’re looking for something different for your hen party why not try our fun Treasure Trail followed by Afternoon Tea. Stroll the medieval streets of Kilkenny while trying to outwit an opposing team by solving a host of cryptic clues then afterwards savour Afternoon Tea in the beautiful River Court Hotel which nestles in the shadow of Kilkenny Castle and overlooks the Nore river.

 

For more personalised hunts we can add photos and some personal insights which makes it all the more fun as each clue can reveal something new about the bride to be. This could be an unseen-before picture of them as a baby, the place where the couple first met or perhaps their first kiss. A little imagination, a beautiful setting and a wonderful hen party event in Kilkenny.

 

Complete packages to include accommodation, treasure hunts, dinner, taxis etc can be arranged through our sister company Kilkenny Concierge.
