So you’re planning a hen party and you’re looking for an activity but you’re not willing to settle for the usual cocktail making class? You want something fun, something different and something engaging for everyone!

At Hen we’re here to help with seven reasons why you should book a murder mystery for your next hen party!

It’s Interactive

Our murder mystery activity is great craic because you ladies become the characters in the story! Among you, one of you will be the victim and one of you will be the murderer but neither of them will know until the night of the event! Oooh! The suspense is killing me! (See what we did there?)


No Experience Necessary

Not an actor? No problem. Our murder mystery is for everyone whether you’re a seasoned pro or just there for the craic. We would never encourage our guests to do anything they’re not comfortable with and would never do anything to embarrass them or cause stress.

It’s a great Ice Breaker

Hen parties these days are diverse with a mixture of childhood friends, adult friends, work colleagues and family all attending. Not everyone knows each other so a murder mystery is a great way to mix up the group, get people talking and having fun. By the end of the activity, over 98% of our guests all agree the group is a lot more at ease and comfortable with each other.

It’s Affordable

At Hen we negotiate with our hotels and restaurants to DEATH to keep this activity under €50pp. For €49pp it includes the murder mystery activity, 3 course meal with coffee and tea, room hire and if you’re in Galway or Dublin, we’ll throw in complimentary nightclub entry for you and your fellow ladies. Use discount code MURDER to save an extra €5pp on all murder mystery packages.

It’s Fun!

Life or death – Selfies will be taken!

If you ever watched Jessica Fletcher in Murder She Wrote and thought, β€œI could do that!” then this activity is for you! Each guest will receive their character in advance that explains exactly what the story is and makes some recommendations for their character. The murder mystery is set in the modern day so no need worry about spending a lot of money on costumes. Just come dressed as you would for a hen party and you’ll fit in just fine!

If you have a particular theme planned, (1920’s, Disney Princesses, Minions etc) you can of course still do the murder mystery. The theme won’t affect the murder mystery and will definitely add an extra layer of fun!

More and more men are attending hen parties these days and at Hen we believe in welcoming everyone! We’ve created extra optional characters to accommodate your fiercely fabulous male guests to ensure everyone has a good time!

We can travel (almost) ANYWHERE!

Over the last 5 years and almost 600 hen parties, we’ve travelled to every corner or the Emerald Isle and back again. We’ve visited some of the most incredible places and taken in the most breathtaking views this country has to offer so it’s no wonder why more and more ladies are opting for the quiet self-catering option.

Wherever you are, we can travel to you (some T’s & C’s) and bring the fun of our murder mystery to your next hen party!
