Cork ARC in Bantry is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays where cancer patients, their families and carers are warmly welcomed and have a space to feel at ease.

For many years patients and relatives in West Cork have been travelling to Cork for our services. Cork ARC in Bantry takes away this long journey. Living in West Cork brings specific challenges for cancer patients, rural isolation, large distances and issues of transportation being important ones. Cancer Connect provides support by transporting people from all over West Cork to our centre in Bantry.
