Getting a taxi in Dublin: As easy as 1, 2, 3!

Posted on 15th March 2012 by

If you’re looking to get to a nearby location quickly, then a taxi is your best bet in Dublin. Taxis will be seen whizzing around the city at all hours, and you’ll have two options. You can either go to a taxi rank and order one, or simply hail one in from the street. If a taxi is not in use and the driver sees you trying to attract his or her attention, then the taxi will pull up next to you. Just like in the movies!

Do remember, however, that taxi fares can often be extortionate if you are travelling long distance – especially if you are travelling alone. Splitting the cost is a great idea for groups, but if you’re not fortunate enough to be able to do this, then you should perhaps consider using the efficient public transport network. As well as the trains, there are many buses within the city that run very frequently. You should seriously weigh up the pros and cons of using taxis when exploring the city.
