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”.

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’!

Bubble soccer is another one of our great family activities for a day out in Kilkenny. Parents can join their kids as they bump into and knock each other over like human bumper cars while trying to show off their football skills. Players can do backflips, dives, rollies or crash right into each other. Anything goes in bubble soccer but watch out if you lose your balance or fall over or 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!

 

Voted as one of the Best Things to do in Kilkenny!
