"The Islander's Rest", Sherkin Island is the ideal location for a short break, away for the hustle and bustle of the mainland. We have 21 ensuite bedrooms, most with a stunning view of Baltimore Harbour.
We're only ten minutes by ferry from the fishing village of Baltimore in West Cork. With a regular ferry service, you can easily use "The Islander's Rest" as a base to explore the wonders of West Cork, or simply to rest on the tranquil setting of Sherkin Island.
Visitors can relax and enjoy the hospitality of The Islander's Rest Bar, which serves food daily. The bar is one of the island's informal social meeting places, where craic, conversation and comfort go hand in hand with the West Cork tradition of music and song. The message is "Sit back, take it easy and enjoy yourself." The setting is spectacular with a view of Baltimore Harbour and the Beacon at the entrance to the harbour.
Whether staying at The Islander's Rest or just visiting Sherkin Island for the day, why not drop in.
