Chocolate Hens

A sweet twist on traditional hen party fun

There’s no better way to celebrate your best friend’s wedding than some time out with the girls while you indulge yourself in every woman’s favourite treat – chocolate! Kippure Estate has turned traditional hen parties on their head with our ‘Chocolate Hens’ challenge’. Set in the stunning Wicklow Mountains on our gorgeous 240 acre estate, we offer this chocolate themed hen party all year round.

How it works

We’ll divide you into teams before setting you a number of challenges across three zones. The team with the most points au chocolate will gain a precious head start in the final round – a chocolate treasure hunt!

We’ve got plenty of surprises up our sleeves to ensure you have plenty of fun during the three hour event. Here’s a taste of what you’ll experience:

Zone 1 – The Chocolate Factory

There’s nothing like freshly toasted, chocolate covered marshmallows to give you a mouth-watering taste of the Great Outdoors. In our first zone you can enjoy just that. Combining basic bushcraft skills with everyone’s favourite treat, compete to make scrummy chocolate covered marshmallows for your team and our instructors.

It might sound easy, but don’t be fooled – there’s a catch. The first team to finish wins all the points, with bonus points awarded for taste and creativity, so you’d better hurry!

Zone 2 – The Revels Game

Zone 2 contains a range of fun-filled challenges, including the Blind Chocolate Coin Hunt. Verbally guide one of your team members to find the chocolate coins before anyone else. Whatever you find, you can eat!

Zone 3 – Aero Archery

Don’t worry if you’ve never tried archery before – this is not your typical archery competition! Score points for hitting the target, but don’t count on keeping them. The targets are covered with mystery chocolate wrappers. Hit one and you might gain points, you might lose points or you might even be able to take points away from another team. It’s fast paced fun right up until the final shot.

Finale – Chocolate Treasure Hunt

Your adventures in the three zones will culminate in an exciting treasure hunt. Solve the clues and be the first to uncover the hidden chocolate treasure!

Customer Feedback

Just wanted to pass on our thanks to the team at Kippure over the weekend for the chocolate hens hen party. We all had a great time and the instructors, Stephen and Cormac, were brilliant and very kind. They even offered us tea between activities as it was such a cold day. We had a great experience and would definitely return, you may see us in the future. Thanks again, Louise, Aoife, Grainne, Fiona, Sally, Caoimhe, Val, Jennie, Deirdre, and Catherine.
Unforgettable! Stunning location, great fun, great accommodation- and all the chocolate you can eat… Thanks to Colin and Rob and all your staff for making us welcome!  Jess Allen
