If you're the kind of person who would rather resit the Leaving Cert Irish exam than go camping at a festival, you've come to the right place.
This is the first step of your rehabilitation and we're pretty confident that we'll have you convinced of the merits of the great outdoors by the end of this article.
While we have a strange love for sleeping in a damp tent during EP, there's no denying that a little luxury is always a nice treat and glamping has become increasingly popular in Ireland over the past few years.
You don't have to carry all the heavy bags, you can sleep in an actual bed and it's way more craic than a boring hotel or B&B.
Here are some of the coolest spots in Ireland to check out...
Teapot Lane, Sligo
If you have a friend who's reluctant to give glamping a go, show them the Teapot Lane website and they'll be won over pretty quick. This dedicated site has a range of options for sleeping, from vintage caravans to yurts, and even has a spa on site where you can treat yourself to some holistic therapies.
It's a very popular location for hen/stag parties and they'll arrange for a DJ or musicians to play so that you can keep the party going once the sun goes down.
Glamping Under The Stars, Laois
A relatively new addition to the Ireland's glamping landscape, this site is open from May to September and also pops up at festivals across the country. It's self-catering, but has a BBQ and a pizza oven so you can try something a little different come dinner time.
You can lay your head in one of the very luxurious bell tents or alternatively, try 'Old Rosie' - the horse drawn caravan. The perfect escape from the city!
Pod Umna Glamping, Galway
Galway is one of the greatest spots in Ireland for a weekend away and this fab little village of eco huts, bell tents, huts and B&B rooms will definitely make the trip worthwhile. It's close to the beautiful Portumna Forest Park, which is the perfect spot for a leisurely stroll or cycle, and it's child-friendly too (with a on-site babysitter on request).
On the shores of Lough Derg, this is a great choice for anyone who likes water sports.
Kinsale Glamping, Cork
Looking to escape the world with your significant other? Look no further than this yurt outside Kinsale, which is so remote that the owners will pick you up when you arrive in the town. It's right on the water and perfectly situated to make the most of those gorgeous Cork sunsets.
Rock Farm, Slane
Whether you're a single traveller, a group or a family, these guys have the perfect spot for you in their ecovillage. One thing is for sure, you certainly won't be bored as there are tons of activities available in the local area - from kayaking and rafting to 'recreational tree climbing'.
They host food festivals during the year, as well as weddings and events, so there's always an excuse to visit!
Dromquinna Manor, Kenmare
The tagline that the guys at Dromquinna have chosen for their website says it all - "when was the last time that you did something for the first time?'. This gorgeous site is a seriously luxe introduction to glamping, with custom-made tents designed by safari tent experts in India.
You'll also get a fully sprung king size mattress and cotton linen, while there's a reading room and games room on site if you need something to keep you entertained.
We'd be more than happy sitting back and taking in the view for a few hours though!
