Cape Clear Island is off the coast of West Cork. It is 8 miles from Baltimore Village and is the nearest inhabited area to the famous Fastnet Rock Light House. It is a romantic and beautiful place, rugged but enormously welcoming, an ancient patchwork landscape surrounded by shimmering seas. The island is three and a half miles long by one and a half miles wide and has a permanent population of 130 which increases significantly during the Summer months. It is a Gaeltacht, where Irish is still spoken.
