With a pub-to-person ration that makes other capital cities green with envy, Dublin is the ultimate city for a bar crawl.

While Dublin may have been founded by Vikings and boasts a few old artefacts and monuments, it actually has the youngest population in all of Europe. Approximately half of the population are under 25-years of age, so you can guarantee this is one city that knows how to party.
Dublin's beauty is undeniable, so if you are one for sightseeing, Ireland's capital is guaranteed to impress during your hen weekend.
One of the most popular Dublin landmarks is Dublin Castle. Opened in 1204, it's the oldest castle in Dublin and has undergone several restorations in its time.
Another attraction that serves both as sightseeing and as boozing is Brazen Head. Established in 1198 AD as a coach house, this is Dublin's oldest pub and well worth a visit during your hen weekend.
While it might not actually be a law or a sacred rule, you absolutely can not visit Dublin without visiting the Guinness Brewery. The birthplace of the most famous stout in the world, Dublin produces a cool 10-million pints of Guinness daily - so we're pretty sure they won't run out of any of the stuff while you're there. If you're not a huge Guinness fan, Dublin is also home to the Jameson Distillery.
