The historic Sherkin Island can be reached by a 15-minute ferry ride from Baltimore, County Cork. The island is home to the ruins of a Franciscan friary established in the mid-1400s as a centre of both religion and learning.

The monastery continued to operated until 1796, when its last friar died.
