Clear Island or Cape Clear Island is an island off the south-west coast of County Cork in Ireland. It is the southernmost inhabited part of Ireland and has a population of 147 people. It is an official Gaeltacht area, and most inhabitants speak Irish and English. Its nearest neighbouring island is Sherkin Island, which is 2 km east of the Cape Clear Island. The island is divided into east and west halves by an isthmus called the Waist, with the North Harbour to the landward side and the South Harbour on the seaward side.
