Almost as (if not more) important as your wedding day itself, your hen do is the perfect time to let loose with your friends and have a wild time before putting a ring on it.
With so many destinations to choose from, it can be hard to decide where to head for your girls’ holiday.
The Emerald Isle may fly under the radar when it comes to the perfect hen do destination. However, one Irish city has been named among the trending bridal party destinations in Europe.
With all that goes into planning a wedding, the process can prove extremely stressful and time-consuming. So, the added pressure of organising your hen party can be overwhelming for brides-to-be.
Thankfully, swimwear retailer Pour Moi has analysed Google search data to reveal the top ten trending bridal party destinations in Europe to save you valuable planning time.
With a return to global travel, many brides-to-be are keen to head abroad for their hen do. Trending destinations include the likes of Porto in Portugal and Milan in Italy.
However, Ireland’s capital city, Dublin, has ranked sixth for trending bridal party destinations in Europe.
This year, the Irish city has seen a huge 44% rise in Google searches for hen parties, making it one of the most popular European destinations for soon-to-be newly-weds.
With plenty of iconic bars, unique attractions, and a wealth of history and culture, it is no surprise that Dublin ranks so highly among those planning hen parties.
While the Emerald Isle offers plenty for hens to enjoy, the one thing it lacks, compared to other destinations on the list, is reliable warm, sunny weather.
The top trending destination is the Portuguese city of Porto, which saw an impressive 100% rise in Google searches for hen parties.
Milan closely followed, with an 83% rise. The French capital of Paris is hot on the heels of Milan. The city of love saw an 82% rise, while the Italian capital of Rome saw a rise of 64%.
Coming just above Dublin to claim fifth position is Dubrovnik in Croatia, which saw a rise of 45%. Meanwhile, Brussels in Belgium ranked just behind the Irish capital, seeing a 40% rise.
Closing out the top ten is Palma, Mallorca, in eighth, seeing a 38% rise. Lisbon in Portugal followed in ninth (+27%) and Madrid in Spain in tenth (+26%).
However, suppose you’re not too worried about the weather. Then, the Irish city ranked among the top trending bridal party destinations in Europe could be the perfect place for you.
