Sit Back and Relax in Barcelona, Spain

If you’d like to see the sights in style, there are lots of riverboat tours on offer. Why not take a leisurely cruise along the Vltava river while sipping champagne and watching the sunset?
If you want to take in some of Prague’s culture, visit the world famous astronomical clock in the old town and take a stroll across the Charles Bridge, it’s the perfect place to grab a drink and watch the world go by.
Prague is a classy hen do destination, with fairy tale architecture, picturesque scenery and lots of sophisticated cocktail bars.
Pick up Some Culture in Riga, Latvia
For hens looking to soak up some culture before heading on a night out, look no further.
The Old Town itself is a UNESCO World Heritage site, with buildings of varying architectural styles including gothic, baroque, modernism and art nouveau. Take a trip to Riga’s world-famous gallery, or pop down to the Central Market. It’s crammed with fresh fruit and local produce and is well worth to sample some local delicacies.
At night, there are plenty of bars to choose from. One particularly popular destination is the Terrace Riga – a roof terrace with a 360 ° panoramic views across the city’s skyline. A perfect place for sipping some cocktails with your hens.
Enjoy the Scenery in Cork, Ireland
Cork has the same vibrant spirit as the capital, Dublin, but is wrapped up in a welcoming small-city vibe. Cork and charming narrow streets offer a beautiful backdrop for any weekend away.
For those most interested in the nightlife, Cork is a big student town, so you’ll be guaranteed a wild night out. Start the evening with a cocktail-making class before heading out on the town to party until the early hours with your best girls.
