Why not add an extra special dimension to your hen party by having a cruise on the Shannon while a murder mystery unfolds before you.  


The Murder Mystery dinner is a fun packed, dramatic and truly memorable hen party event that will have your guests laughing all night long. Add to that the unique setting of your very own cruise boat and suddenly its all very 'Murder on the Nile'.



You’ll all become detectives for the evening as our professional actors play out a murder mystery drama in your midst while you wine and dine on your own private cruise boat amidst the fabulous surrounds of the river Shannon. This event takes place in Athlone.


A fantastic evening of fun, hilarity and some good old fashioned detective work all aboard your very own boat (photo below)!





  • This event is run either as an evening (dinner) or daytime (tapas) activity.

  • You are greeted as you board by a larger than life character known as 'The Captain'. He will set the scene for the cruise ahead.

  • Just as you leave port, a murder occurs (of the actor of course!!!) But don't worry, he then returns as a detective to explain what’s going on and get your investigative juices flowing! Your task is to find out who killed 'The Captain'!

  • Each of your friends gets a 'character card' outlining who they are for the duration of the cruise, don't worry no one needs to be Kate Winslet - our actor takes care of that.

  • Clues are brought by a series of unusual (to say the least!) characters as the cruise progresses. Witty banter and top class laughs are always on the menu!

  • Using some info that we will have got from you before the event, we will personalise the event for you, incorporating some funny stories about the bride and her friends as part of the plot.

  • One of you is the murderess and your friends have to interview each other throughout the cruise to find out ‘who dunnit!’ by the time we get back to dry land!

  • Of course the crime is always solved, the best case presented to our detective wins a bottle of fizz.

  • For larger groups and bigger budgets – we have 2 and 3 actor versions of this as well as different themes, just ask for details when you make your enquiry.


The event is fun, funny, something different and a really memorable way to celebrate your hen party.
