Welcome to IBS Ireland!

Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a widespread condition primarily affecting the large intestine. There’s a large amount of inter-individual variation in triggers and in symptoms but this condition generally involves abdominal distress in reaction to a certain food or certain foods.

IBS may affect as many as 20% of the Irish population – you’re far from being alone.

IBS Ireland sets out to provide support to those afflicted. Right now we have a forum for peer to peer support – as a condition that lacks uniformity it’s great to see what works for others- however we also hope to source further supports for our members in the near future.

For now though, dive into the forum – don’t be shy! And check out these resources:
