5 Reasons To Have Your Stag In Dublin

If you’ve been tasked with organizing a world-class stag, there’s a lot of pressure on you to get the weekend plan spot on. You must consider budget, accommodation and activities, making sure the location you choose has the perfect combination of all the above. Lucky Dublin has it all and much more. Here are our top five reasons why Dublin is your ideal stag location and why DCU rooms is your best option for stag accommodation:


Firstly, consider the logistics. If you’re travelling from inside of Ireland, you want a location that’s easily reachable by public transport and by road. Dublin is the main hub for buses and trains, and we are the most well-connected county in Ireland with most major motorways leading here. If you’re travelling from overseas, DCU Rooms is less than a 15-minute taxi-ride from Dublin Airport. If you fancy a trip into the city, a short taxi ride will get you there. 


Before you consider what you’re going to do over this exciting weekend, you’ll have to sort some fantastic group accommodation that is not only convenient but affordable to all budgets. DCU rooms have a variety of accommodation options to suit your party size and budget. DCU rooms have individual bedrooms, shared accommodation and even private apartments flexible enough to accommodate a stag of any size. We offer a more reasonably priced option, so you have more money to spend on activities and a few more pints of the black stuff.


Dublin has a huge amount of Stag activities to choose from, everything from a quiet night in the local pub to an action-packed afternoon of outdoor fun. There are comedy clubs, nightclubs, beer buses, pub crawls and so many more exciting ways to fill your time so your evenings certainly won’t be quiet. As for day-time, why not try hiring some sumo suits or bubble football equipment and using some of the green space on DCU campus to run some of the hangover off. Alternatively, there is a gym, swimming pool, sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi in the University Sports Complex in case you want to have some R&R before another big night .


Dublin is home to some truly world-class restaurants. We have a great mixture of fine dining, fast food and every different type of international cuisine you could imagine. DCU Campus has a choice of dining options if you would prefer to stay closer to ‘home’- our 1838 Club Restaurant and the Fig Tree café, as well as a fully stocked Spar shop on site. A short taxi into town opens a whole world of culinary options.


Dublin is a vibrant and exciting town at any time of the year, but the weather is generally more favourable during the summer months if you do want to take advantage of our green spaces. Temple Bar on a Saturday night comes alive with a mixture of tourists and locals, singing along to the talented musicians both in the pubs and on the street. Our shopping areas are second to none and we have world class tourist attractions, like the world-famous Guinness Storehouse. We’re an all-round great choice for your Stag Party!
