Professional partier gets paid to down pints every night

A professional partier who gets paid to down pints every night not only has the dream job, but also says she never gets a hangover. Watch her lifestyle in action below:

Danielle Walsh, 34, was scouted by a bar manager after showing off her amazing ability to chug cocktails in seconds on social media. 

Because of her incredible skills, she was offered a job as a party rep, meaning she spends her nights giving stag and hen dos and other party animals ‘the best night out of their lives’. 

Danielle, from Belfast, Northern Ireland, said: "I do it because I love it. I don't get paid more than anyone else on the team. 

"Think Ibiza weekender but in Belfast. I take tourists from all over the world. 

"Nobody has ever said anything negative about what I do, I think because I am truly myself. 

"My care colleagues absolutely love it and think it's hilarious."

Mum-of-one Danielle starts by loading her revellers with drinks at The Surf Shack, before they pedal around town on a party bike. 

The crew then enjoy more mayhem with ‘willy workshops’, cocktail classes, and strippers. 

Danielle, who is also a care worker by day, was worried she wouldn’t be able to fit the professional partying in to her 9-5 working week, but has somehow been able to make it possible – most likely because, amazingly, she has never suffered too badly from hangovers.

“You cannot dwell on it," she said of the morning after the night before. 

"You need to get up and get out and make sure your house is clean beforehand. 

“Every Sunday I am prepared with a multipack of pickled onion Walkers crisps and Diet Coke. Honestly, it works wonders.” 

Danielle has just one day off on a Sunday to recuperate, but the self-confessed ‘party animal’ simply loves a night out so getting paid to go out is an ‘absolute dream’. 

"I can let my hair down and burn off steam - while earning money - it's a win-win,” she said. 

Things took off when Danielle began sharing videos of herself drinking boozy concoctions on social media back in December 2020 – her favourite tipple being rosé mixed with WKD, her own take on a purple rain cocktail, and the worst being Buckfast and milk, which she was told would taste like chocolate milk.

She quickly amassed 168,900 followers and was scouted in February 2022 by a local bar, the Belfast Pedal Pub, and was asked to join the team as a professional partier. 

“It was such a fluke. One day in lockdown I recorded myself downing a pint of Malibu and milk - and it blew up," she said. 

"The bar manager recognised me off TikTok and asked me to join their team. 

"We start off going for pre-drinks and then pedal around the town on a party bike. 

“Loads of people request to have me as their rep because they recognise me from the internet.”

Now she works every Friday and Saturday taking people ‘from all over the world’ out on the town, saying it’s ‘a bag of laughs’ - and a great ‘release’ from her hard day as a care worker for young people with disabilities. 

“It’s a huge release from a week of hard work,” Danielle continued. 

“I have always worked in care, but the care centre isn’t a nursing home, it’s like a youth club but for adults with disabilities. 

“We do everything from personal care rehabilitation to taking them out for day trips to the beach and cinema. 

“My weekends and weekdays are like chalk and cheese." 

Danielle has always ‘loved a drink’, but found she didn’t have much time to go out when she worked in a care home for seven years doing 14-hour shifts. 

Now she’s happy she can do both – though admits her lifestyle doesn’t exactly leave much room for love. 

”I absolutely love my life, but I don’t have time for a boyfriend,” she said. 

But Danielle wouldn’t have it any other way, adding: “It’s absolute chaos but so much fun.”
