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. Dining/Bar: 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. Marina: 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.
