|You buy the smallest thing and it costs hundreds.|
|Look at the quality of the buildings.|
|Tour buses, the staff accost you in the street, like hustlers outside a bad restaurant.|

The first trip they assessed the work to be done and took out a couple of teeth and sent me home with temporary dentures and told me to come back in around 8 weeks.
When I came back they said that I hadn't had 2 teeth extracted in Dublin, which they had instructed me to do!!!
When did you tell me that? I asked.
It was in the letter we gave you going back.
They wanted me to go back home there and then but I persuaded them to take out the offending teeth which they did.
Back home again and then they wanted me back in the weeks just before Christmas.
No way would a taxi driver give up the busiest time of the year, so we scheduled the visit for now.
Four weeks were set aside.
I would have a Hollywood smile and no dentures by now..
Then after another Xray and a 3D scan came the news
The jawbone is not dense enough to support the implants..and even the top jaw where they had put in a socket could not be guaranteed.
Then they pulled out about 7 teeth and when the gums were swollen the took an impression and gave me dentures.
The dentures wobble around and hurt me.
So I am at home, this is the second Ryanair flight I had to buy last minute, not a cheap proposition.
On the way home I spoke to 4 other guys from Dublin.
None of them were happy.
