There will also be the added bonus of being able to visit 5 artists’ studios on the island and to talk to the artists and see them at work.Sherkin Island Gathering Festival June 17th and 18th

On Sunday there will be social dancing in the Islanders Rest at 2.30pm, and workshops on Haiku poetry and photography in the community hall.

When you’ve done all that there’ll be time for refreshments at the North Shore, or the Jolly Roger or The Islander’s Rest, take your pick! So come visit Sherkin for ‘The Gathering’ and take advantage of reduced ferry fares for this weekend.
