Nothing is wrong with UK pubs, nightclubs or restaurants but our undecided weather and rising prices could mar what should be a great night out with the lads and this is one of the main reasons why more and more stag nights are now being held overseas and for more than one night.

Choices are varied and vast and only a short plane, train or ferry trip away and gives the lads that little more time to enjoy their experiences.
