Carbery's Hundred Isles

Carbery’s 100 Isles is a term that could refer to all the islands along the coast of the Baronies of Carbery West and Carbery East, descendants of the medieval Barony of Carbery, on the Celtic Sea. It is actually used mainly for those in and around Long Island Bay and Roaringwater Bay (County Cork). Many islands still have villages on them.

Bathed by the Gulf Stream, they have a warm climate. However, these islands are also very exposed to the elements, so patches of lush vegetation contrast with treeless expanses of hill and bog, fringed with rocky cliffs and mixed shingle and sand beaches.


The most notable islands are Cléire and Sherkin Island. But also contains:

  • Long Island
  • Castle Island
  • Carthics Islands
  • Horse Island
  • Skeams Islands
  • Heir Island
  • Calves Island
  • Spanish Island
