Baltimore is a small coastal village, situated 13kms south-west of Skibbereen. A popular summer destination, Baltimore is a busy fishing port and is the base for the southernmost RNLI lifeboat in Ireland. Also the point of departure for ferries to the islands of Sherkin and Cape Clear, Baltimore has strong associations with the sea and the pier is a hive of activity both summer and winter.

Many factors combine to make Baltimore the ideal location for water-based activities - the sheltered harbour, the warm Gulf Stream influence, the many islands, the clean waters. Even if you are a dedicated landlubber, a short ferry trip to Sherkin is well worth the effort! Diving, watersports and boat hire are all available and the village has two sailing schools.
