"Taxis" Taxi's Tip by Lochlainn

Taxi's, Dublin: 15 reviews and 9 photos


Taxis- There was war last year when the government practically doubled the amount of taxi plates in Dublin overnight - taxis went on strike and all sorts of shenanigans broke loose around the streets by way of demonstrations and marches etc. It was badly needed however - the huge increase in popularity of city centre nightspots in recent years exposed the woeful lack of taxi facilities in the capital. Despite what some people have said in VT on their Dublin pages there are a few taxi ranks around town and the queues at these can get really large some nights, though the clever person is one who positions themselves outside a large hotel, especially late at night as the pubs close, and nabs a taxi that's letting some tourists off. Hailing a cab on the street at that hour can also be a good move, a lot of taxi drivers would prefer to pick you up on the spot, rather than run the gauntlet of abuse and hostility they receive from people queued at the rank for ages! All is fair in love and taxi-hailing!
