Hen Party Ideas for Older Groups

Does your group consist mainly of Over 40s and need something a little bit quieter for the hen do. If so, then let us run through a few activities and ideas that might suit the group perfectly. So typically an older group going on a hen party would prefer a hotel stay for a night or 2 and the destination would normally be within Ireland to both keep costs down and avoid the plane. A trip to Kilkenny would certainly be on the cards for an older hen party group.

Even if it’s just the mother and aunt who are the older women invited to the hen, sometimes it’s a good idea to make the party geared towards the older members so that everyone is capable of actually going on the hen party. If that is the case, a mature hen party is not a bad idea even for a mainly younger group. Just enjoy the night/s by ensuring the hen goes free with us at HenFree. We also get the best prices and packages when compared to our competitors. So let’s get into our top ideas for a mature hen party in terms of activities. It’s not always just the day time activities by any means!

Afternoon Tea

An afternoon in a fancy hotel or tea parlour rooms would not go astray at all for a hen party whether it’s an older group or not. Often groups enjoy the time spent chatting having tea, coffee and cakes. If you’re feeling a little bit fancier,  add in some gin or prosecco instead.

Dance Class

A Dance Class is a great option for a hen party, young or old. It’s not too active that the older members of the groups would not enjoy it, but also active enough to break a sweat. An option for everyone and at a low cost!

Treasure Trail

A trail through the city is a great idea for many hens who want to explore Kilkenny, Galway, Cork, or Dublin. It’s a mapped tour that you guide yourselves, and is often personalised to the bride. Including “in” jokes and pictures as a few teams “race” to the finish answering the sheet along the way.


Karaoke is another great idea for an older hen party. Stay in one pub and get a Karaoke night of fun with the best songs that you can sing and have as much fun as you can muster. It’s all up to you!

A Cocktail Class is a perfect activity to start off the night on a high. Learn how to make your favourite cocktail. This activity is enjoyed by all ages. The entire hen group will be more than merry moving onto the bar afterwards! It’s a brilliant ice breaker activity.

Positivity & Prosecco

Positivity and Prosecco is a new and relaxing activity. Available in most locations, this activity is something different for hen groups to try. The activity takes the wellness and holistic approach focusing on positive affirmations, and happy tears. There is also a goal-setting workshop incorporated into the activity. At the end of the activity, the goal is to feel empowered, inspired and having found your soul. A complete zen activity.
