Sherkin Island (from the Irish Inis Earcáin) lies southwest of County Cork in Ireland alongside other islands of Roaring Water Bay. It measures 3 miles long by 1.5 miles wide (5 km by 3 km). With regular ferry services to the island from Baltimore harbour village, this inshore island is in one of the most scenic coastal areas of Ireland. It has a number of beautiful beaches such as Silver Strand, just 1.5 miles from the property.

Sherkin has its own special character. A West Cork anecdote has it that Sherkin`s residents live off their art: island craft, paintings and book writing all inspired by Sherkin`s tranquil lifestyle.

The hotel has a fully fitted commercial kitchen that serves the pub & restaurant (which has a 7-day trading license) and function rooms, making it an ideal location for small weddings, birthday parties etc.

With the added benefit of a marina attached, one of few marinas between Kinsale and Dingle on the south-western coast, it is an essential stop off for anyone sailing this coastline.

It also attracts a number of local day trips during the summer months who want to enjoy the beauty of the island and visit its wonderful beaches.

The surrounding waters are renowned for boating, sailing and other water activities such as whale & dolphin watching and the famous Fastnet Lighthouse is just 9 miles away.

Dún na Long Castle:
Dún na Long (Fort of Ships) Castle was built by Fínghin O` Driscoll in the mid-15th century. It was burned down in 1537. The remains of the castle are a beautiful feature in the garden.
