Welcome to



Gort Cancer Support Centre offers a confidential community-based cancer support service to anybody affected by a cancer diagnosis in the South Galway / North Clare areas. We provide the highest possible standard of care to everyone who avails of our support services. From the very first point of contact, you will be greeted by one of our caring and empathetic team members, whose role is to ensure you feel supported and welcome. Their expertise, dedication and care for each person using our services, makes Hollyblue House the haven of tranquillity it is.

A diagnosis of cancer profoundly changes a person’s life. Many people feel alone, isolated and afraid. Some people keep their fears to themselves in order not to cause further trauma to their families. Others have no one to share their fears with. By adopting a holistic approach and providing a range of supportive services and activities, we enhance people’s wellbeing and coping skills.

Please make the call, as we are here to support you and your family. We fully understand your feelings of fear, panic, sadness and loneliness. We can assure you when you leave our centre, you  will have a new sense of peace and hope.

All services are offered FREE OF CHARGE and confidentiality is ensured.

I am so grateful that Gort Cancer Support opened it’s doors to me. The centre and staff and supports helped make a tough time easier. The generosity and kindness shown to me will forever be remembered. Thank You

It is a pleasure to attend meetings to have a chat or a laugh a cup of tea or a coffee. I never thought that getting cancer would bring me so many blessings and new friends.

The availability of these services in my area are of great assistance to me and I am able to meet wtih people who have similar experiences to my own.

My cancer is in remission but I am greatly reassured to have this support centre nearby.

Location is perfect – accessible but private, support is superb. Huge attention to detail. The centre is nicely decorated and very welcoming.

Staff and volunteers are kind, welcoming, inviting, and make you feel very relaxed. I was fearful of going at first but once I met the people there, I felt very at ease and always felt better after a visit to the centre.

Overall, the centre is welcoming warm friendly staff and a wide range of activiities – something for everyone.

Today is International Volunteer Day - a day to recognise the contribution volunteers play in the community & to thank them for their efforts.

The theme for this year is 'If everyone did...' recognising the power of collective action. Just think...if everyone volunteered, then the world would be a better place.

On this day we also want to acknowledge the contribution of our volunteers. We are so grateful to ALL our volunteers, past & present, for their part in ensuring the continued running of our support centre. THANK YOU ALL 👏👏👏
