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.

After the show you can usually get a taxi from outside the ground by simply flagging a taxi down. The entry points to the stadium for ticket holders are colour coded – either red, green, orange, blue or purple – with each colour designating the route that needs to be taken to access the stadium. You will also have to exit the stadium by the same colour coded route.
