Hoping to go to Ireland in September, to stay with an aunt in Dublin for a week, another aunt in Cork for a week and a further week in Mayo. My father and I go there every year but this will be the first with me being on Dialysis.

So was wondering iolaire if you could tell me if there was a reason you didn't dialysis in Galway or Mayo, I'm sure I read there was a clinic in Castlebar, or was there just no vacancy's?

I hope you don't mind me asking.

All Irish centers were filled. I didn't look in county mayo that was too far north for me. Galway hospital would have taken me but the Fresenius Dublin took me. Start scheduling your centers now, there they schedule four months in advance.

Thank you, hopefully we'll get lucky as we do have some wiggle room with dates, and a car which widens our search area.

Good luck, have you started contacting centers? 

As a said before "All Irish centers were filled," per the Irish Kidney association when contacted by my coordinator.  When my wife contacted the same people they mentioned their might be space in a private center in Dublin which is where we found space at the Fresenius center, who a month prior told my coordinator they did not have space.

I was at the point where I was looking into getting treatment in London and flying over on Ryan Air - that is how bad it looked re scheduling...

I can't communicate on phones, so my dad is contacting the hospital tomorrow. Couldn't get him to contact sooner, so who knows if it will even happen, but fingers crossed.

Thank you for all your help.
