Sherkin Island lies in Roaringwater Bay, West Cork, in the south-west of Ireland

Just three miles long and one and a half miles wide, Sherkin has a unique beauty and variety of landscape, which is both tranquil and breathtaking. There is a regular ferry service between the village of Baltimore and Sherkin Island, with a journey time of just ten minutes and hourly frequency – making Sherkin one of Ireland’s most accessible off-shore islands. Sherkin buzzes with activity during the summer months, and locals are renowned for their warmth and hospitality. Traditional music too, is very important on the island, both with the islanders themselves and with visiting musicians.

Sherkin House is an ideal base for a break away from the hustle and bustle of the mainland.
