Best Stag Do Weekend Destinations in Europe

Best Stag Do Weekend Destinations in Europe

If you are planning a lads weekend, or stag do abroad which isn't going to cost the world then you have a lot of travel options. But deciding where to go and what to do can be difficult as there are so many stag do destinations available where you can mix fun, with madness, with partying, watching sports like football or just sightseeing. 

You’ll want a destination, either in the UK or abroad, with drinks, good restaurants, and nighttime entertainment. Here are our top ten lads weekend destinations in Europe for a night of mayhem.


1) Riga

The young upstart challenging Tallinn in the Baltic lads’ night league table, Riga Town Hall Square has that fascinating and fabulous architecture as a backdrop before a mazy dribble through a stunningly colourful collection of buildings in the old city. And it’s not too expensive.


2) Belfast

When you think about Ireland everyone knows about Dublin, but what about its counterpart across the border? Anywhere that has a ‘Filthy Quarter’ has got to be worth a peek, especially at a venue that has its own Oktoberfest, ‘Gypsy Lounge’ and Secret Garden. There’s also some brilliant history for the morning after, including the museum of Titanic Belfast.


3) London

Where to start? Rather than trying to cover the whole city you could pick a certain area, such as Camden, Clapham, Soho or Notting Hill. Covent Garden alone will provide everything you need for a night of chaos. You could do worse than checking out TwentySomethingLondon to plan your eating and drinking around the city’s attractions.


4) Krakow

Poland has several great venues only a short flight away – Warsaw and Wroclaw are also superb – but Medieval Krakow seems to be the number one travel destination. Simple maths: Bars which scream rustic and shabby chic such as Alchemia and Singer Café, plus Eastern European beers of brutal strength, equals fun.


5) Newcastle

View the iconic bridges as you take a rampage along the Quayside to visit bars such as the Pitcher and Piano, before heading inland for the mixologists’ dreams that is Pleased to Meet You, the chic style of Livello, and the North East Bar of the Year Winner 2013 No.28. 


6) Budapest

Taking a dip in The Gellert Spa is equivalent to ‘taking a bath in a Cathedral’, so the saying goes – and it might also be the perfect place to sweat out a hangover. The Hungarian capital is actually two cities in one (Bude and Pest) with a different vibe - whatever you do check out the Ruin pubs, which are among the finest in the world. 


7) Liverpool

This vibrant university town is bursting with excellent bars and venues for a raucous night. Live music fans will be well aware of the O2 Academy, and most might know of the Leadmill, but it would be remiss to visit the Steel City without a slow jaunt along the host of quality bars and pubs.


8) Seville

An alternative to Barcelona and Madrid, the city promises a great night of discotecas, Tapas, Flamenco, and the devastating Agua de Sevilla – a killer cocktail of four types of liquor, champagne, pineapple juice and cream. Plus you might be able to go along to a Sevilla or Real Betis match if you arrive an hour before kick-off.


9) Prague

A tried and tested venue for lads looking for a weekend of fun, Prague is a fascinating smorgasbord of castles and royalty, neo-renaissance museums, strip joints, and hipster multicultural bars and pubs such as the Crossclub and its musical dramaturgy.


10) Newquay

Voted “one of the nation’s favourite seaside towns”, Newquay and its beaches represent a great lads’ night out on a super summer evening. Combine surfing, kayaking and other water sports with a host of bars such as the Sailors Arms and Chy Bar.
