The Average Amount Irish People Spend To Go On Hen & Stag Parties Is Revealed

The Mirror reports that guests are splashing out a huge average of €300 to have one last wild hurrah with their mates before weeping them down the aisle, an increase of 50% compared to just two years ago.

Why’s this you ask? Are we going mad and buying in the finest champagne?

Well, a survey carried out by showed that people are upgrading their party packages, spending more on activities and usually booking two nights away.

The average hen or stag party package costs between €140 to €160, with an extra €100 – €200 spent on glad rags, transport, drinks, and of course: genitalia accessories.

Fergal Quinn, from said:

“People used to be more price conscious when looking for hen or stag party ideas but that is changing now.

“Parties are spending more on activities and beauty treatments as well as looking for higher-grade hotels.
