It is worth giving our team a call to discuss your stag. Some activities are more time sensitive than others, so if you are late it can cause problems. Some activities are best to be done at certain times of the year - take for instance White Water Rafting. It might sound obvious, but it is best to do this activity when it rains a lot. While a typical response would be that it rains all the time in Ireland - best results are in October through to March.

Some 'different' ideas unique to Sligo

From the point of a Sligo native, we think that surfing in Strandhill followed by a nice pint in one of the many fine pubs in Strandhill is a great stag idea and in our opinion one of the best stag ideas. It is a super cool area and if there are some of the guys that don't fancy partaking in the activity - they can go directly to the pub and wait for the others!. Other ideas quite unique to Sligo include Coasteering and Whack a Jack Lawn Bowls. One idea that is very different and not immediately obvious to stags is the Cube Stag Party Package.
