Win 1 of 5 Family Passes to the GPO Witness Museum

The GPO Witness History museum is a highly immersive and engaging exhibition that puts you right inside the GPO during Easter Week in 1916!

The lovely team at the museum have given us some FREE family passes to give to NRC customers!! To win all you have to do is pop over to our Facebook page and answer the following question: The GPO Witness Museum is located on O’Connell Street. What was this street previously known as? (Don’t forget to like and share the post too!)

History will come to life as you experience events from both sides of the conflict and through the eyes of bystanders caught in the crossfire through electronic touch screens, video, audio visual booths, sound and authentic artefacts – many previously unseen.

You’ll be immersed in the action as you compose newspaper reports, examine the original copy of the Proclamation and send Morse code to declare the Irish Republic by radio.

After the exhibition, you can relax and reflect in the café and retail store overlooking the courtyard. The courtyard is also home to a commissioned sculpture called ‘They are of us all’, commemorating the forty children who died during the Easter Rising.

 

So if you’re looking for something to do with the kids over the holidays why not pop over to the NRC Facebook page and enter our competition and you could be going along to this fantastic museum over the summer!

Dublin Airport Taxis: Top 9 Tips & Pre-booking

As more and more carriers schedule their flight for a late night arrival or departure in the early hours of the morning, people are often left with not so many options to make their flight to or from Dublin Airport.

Pre-booking a taxi to Dublin Airport is the less stressful way to either getting to Dublin Airport without sleepy- driving at 4am (and pay a fortune for parking in the airport), or to get home as soon as possible without having to worry about a thing when you’re tired coming back from your holiday, short break or work trip.

In the above scenarios (and many more!) NRC has got you covered. If you’re not familiar with NRC, we’re an Irish-owned and run taxi company that specialises in getting customers wherever they need to be faster and cheaper than the competition.
