Stag night in Ireland any ideas?

Hi,

I need some advice here guys, Getting married in July and thought I had the stag sorted but it's fallen through.
I'm looking for some ideas for a group of around 15 guys of mixed ages.
I was thinking of galway for a saturday and saturday night so I'm looking for some recomendations for accomdation and day activities, but i'm open to ideas. I know alot of pubs don't allow Stags into them so I've no idea where to look.
Any info appreciated.
Cheers

Buy cans.
Find field.
Drink.

Bring your own tunes.

It's the stag on a budget!

@careymary
sea session sounds wicked but I don't think the oldies would like it.

@ feelingstressed
I had looked into Kilkenny but it's a bit too close to home,

Keep the ideas coming, that was fast.

Rent boat to travel down the river shannon.

Fill boat with drink and sausages, wear lifejackets.
Then stop in riverside town for the odd pint & cooked dinner.

I was in Galway for a stag 2 weeks ago, 16 guys also.

http://www.pureskill.ie/

For non-alcoholic 2 hours

Then hit up coyote bar with women dancing on the bar and a free go on the mechanical bull. (also, more opportunity to creep)

Absolute savage weekend. Place is covered wall to wall with people having the craic.

Sligo. Organise Surfing lessons. Good Golf courses, sligo town has some excellent pubs.

Galway is fantastic. End of.

Invade some random small town,

Hire a mini bus and do a mystery tour

Kilrush or Kilkee in Clare

Take a boat out, you can bring your own cans and do some fishing

No connection to this site, just the first page on google
http://www.fishing.westclare.net/charter.htm

They'll take you out and give instruction

I think this looks like it would be great craic, Id say a bunch of guys would have a great time: http://xtreme.ie/

You could do that during the day then head into the pub afterwards.

If you're driving Galway direction you can head here
http://www.pallaskarting.com/

You can hire out the track just for your stag party if you want. You don't have to do an open session

I love the place
Here is a lap (not my video)

I can see myself lying on a hospital bed after that!
Went paintballing once for a Stag do (during the day) ended up losing a pair of Nike runners and getting a spasm in me back 2 days later which was agony!!!
