One of the best things about summer is getting away from the desk for some quality downtime.

While it's nice to travel abroad, it can also be a costly business and long-haul flights tend to leave you feeling more exhausted than rested on your return.

Ireland is an often overlooked option when it comes to summer holidays and if the weather behaves, it rivals the most famous spots in the world when it comes to sheer natural beauty.

Camping is a great way to add some adventure to your trip and whether you're travelling with the family or a group of mates, it can be much better craic than a fancy hotel suite.

There are a host of awesome campsites around Ireland so here are a few worth checking out...

1. Eagle Point Caravan And Camping
