The key things you need to consider when coordinating a stag party are: 1/. Where you’ll be going, 2/.The type of accommodation you’re after, 3/. The activities you would like to do during the day – e.g. go karting, paintballing, quad bike racing, clay pigeon shooting, 4/. What you would like to do in the night , for example clubs, pubs and restaurants and finally 5/. How you are going to stitch up the groom.
