Bubble Football

Bubble or Zorb football is possibly the fastest-growing craze in Europe so you have to take the chance to give it a go while you're in Dublin. Of course, the only resemblance this laugh-a-minute game bears to proper football is that you have to kick the ball into a goal so you don't have to be a talented athlete to have a bucket load of fun.

The game is played with just your legs sticking out of an inflatable clear plastic bubble that makes collisions and being bowled over regularly inevitable; but you just try getting up again. The results are hilarious so everyone will have a great time � even if your pride is dented a wee bit.

Escape Room

It's a race against time as you find the clues, solve the puzzle and try to break out of the room. This is a fun and exciting activity where you and your mates will need to work together. With the clock ticking down, have you got what it takes to escape? It's a bit like the Crystal Maze, the Cube and Cluedo all rolled into one.

There are 4 puzzle rooms, with each taking between 2-4, 2-6, or 2-8 depending on the scenario. In total groups of up to 25 can all take part at once. You get an hour of play time in which you need to manipulate objects to find clues and solve the puzzles. If you work everything out before the time runs out, you escape the room and win the game. You'll be given hints if you get stuck, and you don't need any special skills to play.

Each room has a unique scenario. Will your team be asked to investigate what happened to Emma Kane in a tiny, mystery room. Dare you follow in the footsteps of those detectives who have left this cold case unsolved? Will you be asked to get hold of the Philosophers' Stone where every sin is an illusion of a virtue that guides you through? Can you break out of your jail - nobody is innocent! Can you balance the boxes by blocking your body and unblocking your brain to break out? Whatever your team is asked to do you'll need all your creative energy to work it out.

This is something really different to try, and we guarantee it will give everyone loads to talk about.

This venue is a little outside the city centre, so it could be easiest to book a transfer.

About Dublin

'In Dublin’s Fair City, where the girls are so pretty' there won’t be a single disappointed stag. Just like the traditional song says Dublin is teeming with lovely ladies, a wonderful atmosphere and plenty of local 'craic' to ensure you can never get enough of the capital of the Emerald Isle. Dublin welcomes every visitor with open arms - it’s like everyone everywhere wants to show you an awesome time, particularly when you're celebrating a stag do! The city has been building its reputation as a party capital for over a millennium now, so it’s bound to have everything you and the lads need to kick your weekend off in style.

Before tucking into the beverages this city is famous for, you’ll want to give clay pigeon shooting a try or even some Grand Prix quality go karting. Both are incredible activities that offer brilliant (good clean) fun for the whole group. Once your blood is pumping from an afternoon of competition, pack in a few exclusive tours including the St. James’ Gate Brewery, where Dublin’s most famous export, Guinness is brewed (obviously you’ll need to sample a pint or two or three). From here you could fuel the party further with a trip to The Old Jameson Distillery which is certain to kick things up another notch.

As the sun sets your group will be in a jolly spirit, so take them to a local comedy club for plenty of Irish laughs. Comedy not quite your ‘thang’? There’s always time to roll the dice at a casino or head down the dogs for a bet or two. Or if you’re all about a cracking party, then the Temple Bar is the place for you. With an exclusive pre-club bar, you’re in for a great start to your big night out. And not to mention, after-hours entertainment in Dublin is unparalleled. Treat your mates to the time of their lives in one of Dublin’s finest lap dance clubs - ensuring your unforgettable stag do is rounded off in true Irish style.

Local Tips

The pubs!

Not surprisingly the pubs are fantastic and where all the action takes place. We advise our stag lads to pay a visit to Temple Bar where it is always busy and heaving, but if you want to visit some real Irish pubs then head to O'Donoghues or Dohney and Nesbitts on Merrion Row or over to The Stags Head or The Long Hall on George's Street, or Kehoe's, Davy Byrne's or Neary's off Grafton Street. Also just on the edge of Temple Bar is a really great bar called The Palace - start your night here before heading into the madness of Temple Bar itself. If you want a bit of Trad Irish music thrown in, then O'Donoghues is good and so is The Cobblestone, down in Smithfield.

Clubs

Copper Face Jacks nightclub is a guaranteed laugh and you'll get to meet Irish people here. It buzzes up after 11pm and this is where all the GAA (Gaelic) heads go, so guaranteed lots of girls! You could also hit Howl at the Moon, Club M, Fitzsimons, Alchemy or lots of others. Always passes been handed out in Temple Bar on Fri/Sat night.

Have a laugh

The International Bar on Wicklow Street (just beside Grafton Street) do comedy every night and is worth checking out to get the night rolling. Or The Laughter Lounge on Eden Quay beside the river is also good.

Hop on the train - go out of town!

This might be too cultural, but a twenty minute train journey takes you to Howth, a great fishing/harbour village on the northside of Dublin. You can make the lads walk up the hill (called Howth Head) and then reward them with a pint and some fish/chips in the great local establishments

Clear the hangover: do something uniquely Irish!

The best kept secret in Ireland is our Gaelic Games. Get a taste for yourselves and cure the hangover at the same time!! Bring the lads to play some Gaelic Football, Hurling (a stick and ball game) and Handball and make the weekend a guaranteed success! These are the most popular sports in Ireland and all the locals go mad for them - this is your chance to be Irish for a day!! Guaranteed best Irish craic and will have the lads bragging all weekend about their sporting prowess!

Do the usual - taste the local tipple!

You can bring the lads to Guinness Storehouse or Jameson Whiskey Store - probably the safe options and they are national icons!
