We had a similar question to get in-laws home earlier in the day but I’ll just drop them and then enjoy a drink when I get back, would like to know if there are any taxi’s running on Christmas day though.
We got a taxi for 6 of us (2 adults & 4 children) from Balbriggan to Bettystown on Sunday evening around 8pm.
I asked for a price before booking and they said 25 euro. Its normally around 20 euro so that seemed ok for 6 of us. When we got home, the taxi driver said that he ‘normally’ charges 35 for this journey but 25 would be grand because we had small children instead of 6 adults (like he was doing us a favour!!!)
My husband gave him 30 euro and he was not very forthcoming with the change but I waited for it and got the fiver back. That may sound mean but the journey is 8 miles and takes 10 minutes and I think 25 euro is plenty for him to charge, so I was not giving him 30 euro for it.
Its rare we get a taxi from Balbriggan, one of us usually drives but we had been to a family dinner in my parents house and had a few drinks, so it was a one off (an expensive one off!). We will not be getting a taxi again in a hurry!!
