5 Relaxing Pre-Wedding Activities For The Groom

The ladies aren’t the only ones who need a bit of R&R ahead of the big day – the groom and his pals need to blow off some steam too! Planning a wedding can be super stressful, especially during the few weeks beforehand when you will be experiencing those famous pre-wedding jitters. A boys escape to a luxurious country estate is mandatory to unwind. Here are our favourite activities at Mount Falcon Estate

Mount Falcon


Mount Falcon Estate is the angling hub of the north west. Enjoy exclusive Wild Atlantic Salmon and Fly Fishing for Rainbow Trout along a two-mile stretch of the River Moy. Your crew can relax and enjoy some pre-wedding banter away from the crowds before returning to The Boathole Bar to relive the tales of your angling achievements.


Clay Pigeon Shooting

For the adrenaline junkies, test your skill and reflexes with a choice of four automatic traps, which provide overhead, going away and crossing targets.  It is also possible to set the system up to provide a random flush of 25 or 50 birds, to truly test the skill and reflexes of the gun.

Shooting Range

Be One With The Ocean

Sitting in the heart of the Wild Atlantic Way, it would be a crime not to take advantage of the nearby surf! Featuring the wildest route and most atmospheric towns in Ireland, why not plan the ultimate road trip with just your main lads? A pit-stop at the Estate for a spot of luxury will be the perfect highlight to your travels.

A Spot Of Golf

If you’re a renowned golf junkie, it’s no secret that this part of the country plays host to some of the best golfing territory in the world – and Mount Falcon Estate is at the hub of it all! Within an hour’s drive of 12 golf courses, it’s the ideal location for group stays. Tiger Woods, Mark O’Meara and Nick Faldo have been regular visitors to Mount Falcon over the years and three of its nearby courses have been consistently voted within the top 20 championship links courses in Ireland.



The art of hunting with birds of prey is something you need to experience to truly appreciate. An ancient tradition handed down through the generations, Mount Falcon Estate’s resident Falconers will personally share the secrets of their hunting patterns and ecosystem with you. Walk through the magical woodlands of the Estate and see the Harris Hawk in its natural environment. We couldn’t think of a better country escape to enjoy such an eloquent activity!


Some Well-Deserved Pampering

Ultimate bliss. A bit of pampering is essential after burning all your energy on the many activities available at Mount Falcon Estate. Why not book into the serene Elemis Spa to unwind as you look out on the rugged West of Ireland landscape? A mixture of powerful massage sequences and active ingredients will ensure your body is thoroughly relaxed ahead of your wedding day.
