Sucks for him!!!
That's too bad that happened to him, Dublin doesn't equate to the backwoods hill-jack towns you come across in your travels "off the beaten path" though. I consider Dublin the international hub for Ireland where you'll find all walks of life there. Galway and Cork and the others mentioned in this thread are where you find the universal "Southern Hospitality" I was referring to when it comes to the actual genuine friendships you make with strangers from different countries. I agree about the bad eggs mentioned though!!! SOB's need to be purged from the system!!!
