Sherkin Island lies southwest of County Cork, just a short ferry ride from the pretty village of Baltimore alongside the other islands of Roaringwater Bay.
The island measures just 5 km by 3 km and is blessed with stunning scenery and magnificent unspoiled beaches. The island with an average population of just 100 people, has a primary school, two pubs with a hotel, a bed & breakfast, a community centre and a church, all the essentials an honest man needs to survive. Those who visit are bowled over by the peace & seclusion of this part of Ireland and so many stay longer than they ever intend. Visit www.sherkinisland.eu for more information.
