Are you planning a hens, birthday trip or a girls day out in Dublin? The options are endless as there are so many exciting, fun-filled things to do in the city! Here are our pick of the best:

Afternoon Tea

For a special occasion, you could book your group into one of Dublin’s finest 5-star hotels for a spot of afternoon tea. If you would like to incorporate a tour of Dublin at the same time, take a trip on the Vintage Tea Tour Bus. They have three pick-up times throughout the morning and afternoon and offer a luxurious three-tiered traditional afternoon tea. The bottom layer is a selection of dainty sandwiches, the middle is a variety of scones and the top is filled with delectable cakes and treats. This is afternoon tea like you’ve never had before.

Shopping & Brunch

Dublin is well-known for its love of fashion and the huge number of high-street and high-end shops available on both sides of the city. There’s nothing like a bit of retail therapy to soothe the soul, especially when you have a group of girlfriends to help you. Make sure you are well-fuelled for an afternoon of shopping by stopping in Brother Hubbard for a really delicious brunch. They have branches on both sides of the city so you don’t have to go out of your way.

See A Show

There is no shortage of shows, events and concerts in Dublin at any time of the year. A quick search on will bring up the headline shows happening all over the city. From a huge arena venue like the 3Arena to a tiny back room comedy show in The International Bar, there is something to suit every party. We even have a venue right here on campus called The Helix that hosts all sorts of events- music, comedy, ballet, theatre, family shows and much more.


Dublin’s nightlife is as diverse as our colourful inhabitants. The city centre is a great place to meet people, explore new pubs and get to know why we are described as one of the friendliest nations in the world. If you want a typical tourist destination, complete with dancing and fiddles, visit the cultural hub of the city, Temple Bar. If you are looking for a slightly more trendy side of Dublin, Camden and Harcourt streets are buzzing with cool, laid-back bars. For a real treat, Dublin’s newest restaurant The Ivy has just opened and is already becoming popular with the locals.


Whatever you plan to do on your girl's weekend in Dublin, make sure your accommodation is modern, convenient and affordable. Why pay for a city centre hotel when you could split the cost and have more to spend on fun activities. We have three locations, all very close to town and accessible to the airport and the city by public transport. We offer high-quality budget accommodation and we can tailor a stay for all budgets. We are especially great for group accommodation, giving you the freedom to hang out as a group but retire to your own private or shared room.
