Since the opening of the Hospice units at
Bantry General Hospital, Bantry
Hospice has provided great support and comfort to many
families throughout the West Cork area. The units were specifically
designed as self-contained apartments within the hospital complex to
include a kitchen area and sleeping area for the family and relatives
of the patient. The units also allow for discreet access through the
back of the hospital at any time of the day and night rather than
having to adhere to hospital hours.
In addition the Bantry Hospice Project also support the
palliative care team in west Cork with:
- Home care equipment
- Home sitting services
- Night nurse support
The Bantry Hospice Project also support the
Palliative Social Workers in West Cork. The Bantry Hospice Project also

This year sees the course revert back to being mainly on the main
Bantry-Glengarriff road. Starting in Glengarriff, the course heads
along the main road from Glengarriff towards Bantry, turning off the
main road at Ballylickey, before turning back to Bantry at Pearson's
Bridge, rejoining the Bantry-Glengarriff road at approx. 10.5 miles. There is plenty of scenery along the route, with fine
views of Bantry Bay, local rivers and lots of flora & fauna.
