I absolutely adore this island, it is so beautiful, you can get the ferry over from Baltimore, think it cost €5 each way. You can text a number on the morning you are going over and the ferry will send you back the times of the ferry for that day. Once on the island you can walk around it or... More

My partner and I visited Sherkin Island during October 2013 and it was great day, beautiful panoramic views of the North Alantic Ocean and we visited the Islander's Rest for a pint and had look through their little Museum of Sherkin Island that they have. All in all a great day trip to do if your down in Baltimore.

If you want a quiet weekend away, from mobile and everyday life, this is the place to go. I have gone here so many times and I have never been disappointed. Food is amazing also. They have Chef's from everywhere. Great for a couple retreat, hen weekend, family vacation, it's big enough they can cater for all. Great place!

Beautiful, magical island. The ferry from Baltimore brings you here in 10 minutes or so. Its just beautiful. Bring your own backpack with water and snacks/lunch as there seems to be just the one place on the island that serves food. The terrain isn't too difficult and could be mastered by the average walker. This island is well worth visiting.

Visit Silver Strand and Cow Beach. Island Prices for drinks in the bar are a bit stiff but you cannot beat the location.

Have been going back to Sherkin for more years than I care to remember. Magic from the moment you step on to the ferry (10 minutes to the island). Landing on Sherkin you have just stepped into another world. Just pretend not to see the cars parked on the pier. A beautiful walk, passing the Community centre, the National school... More

Took the ferry to Sherkin Island Tuesday 20th April. On the ferry there were students (mature) heading to do presentations for the finals of their Art Course that is run inconjunction with DIT college. Some were nervous all were very excited. On the island I came across some of their work. The island walk is fantastic. The morning started off... More

It is a good activity to pursue out of Baltimore. Not a very long ferry ride but enjoyable rewarding hike on a peaceful island. The ferries take off from the marina in Baltimore.
