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.
