If the noise is coming through the party wall you could fit an addition stud wall incorporating rockwool acoustic slabs inside the existing wall. The wall would have to be fitted to leave a air gap and fixing would have to be to the floor and ceiling. You will loose about 100mm on the width of the room.
It depends how the noise is being transferred from one house to the next so suggest you try one room to see what effect it has.
