One Day Diabetes Retreats

At Diabetes Insight we have learnt that living and managing diabetes takes a significant amount of knowledge, support and resources that people need to access in addition to their mainstream services.

We provide a range of  bespoke services to help people with diabetes, that are exclusive to Diabetes Insight.

One of these services are our very popular One Day Retreats which are run from Lavender Lodge Gardens in the gateway to West Cork, Bandon. Set in a peaceful, rural countryside, the retreat allows participants to relax and gain knowledge/confidence with their diabetes management within a unique beautiful mature garden setting.
