Camping - sleeping under the stars, becoming one with nature, cracking open a cold one with the lads/ladies. Sounds like an ideal break away from the office, right?

There's no better time of year to pitch a tent than the summer - I mean, the weather is bound to pick up again if we cross our fingers hard enough. 

With that in mind, here are 8 of our favourite campsites in Ireland. Have we missed any good ones? Let us know!

1. Dungannon Park - Tyrone

Dungannon Park is a 70-acre parkland surrounding a gorgeous lake and it has plenty of facilities like a tv room and a tennis court.

2. Campail Teach an Aragail - Kerry

This campsite has facitilities for caravans, tents and all that jazz, as well as having pubs, shops, museums and restaurants in the surrounding areas. 

Doesn't sound much better than that.
