Winter Camping

Get away form the city light pollution to the middle of the Sperrins  and get ready to experience the magic wonders of thousands of glimmering stars.

Bring warm clothes, drinks, camera and telescope to the dark skies around Davagh Forest, and on a clear night see if you can spot the Milky Way.

The night sky around the Sperrins has captivated people for thousands of years. Sky-scanners should also check out the nearby Beaghmore Stone Circles, another top dark sky site that has long been thought of as having underlying celestial purposes.

Winter time in Sperrin Mountains can be as beautiful & magnificent as bad and miserably…

The Shepherds Rest Campsite is located in the middle of Sperrin Mountains in a rural location far away from city light. Make your stargazing & aurora chasing a great event. Relax in front of the fireplace after your winter exploration of the Sperrins hill walks or mountain biking in Davagh forest.

Relax in The Shepherds Rest cosy Pub with pint of Guinness or Hot Whiskey. Listen to Irish Music and recitals of local poets. Children & dogs welcome.
