The Islands

The summer sun is falling soft on Carbery's hundred isles. . .
The Sack of Baltimore, Thomas Davis 1844

Across the harbour from Baltimore the West Cork coastline merges into the myriad islands and rocky islets known collectively as Carbery’s Hundred Isles. Each of the main inhabited islands — Cape Clear, Sherkin and Heir — has developed a unique personality through being separated from the mainland and its neighbours, if only by a few hundred yards in some cases. The islands themselves are fascinating places to visit and the waters around them offer possibilities for kayakers, sailors, divers, wildlife-watchers and anglers.
