Towns of Cork
Baltimore —County Cork
Baltimore is a very attractive village, harbour and sailing base 13km south-west of Skibbereen. A ferry service for Sherkin and Cape Clear islands departs from here. In 1631 the town was raided by a band of Algerian pirates. Some of the local inhabitants were killed and many were taken off as slaves to North Africa.
