Funny items found in NRC taxis

cropped-header.pngEver left your mobile phone in a taxi after a night out? You’re not alone! NRC Taxi drivers find the most weird and wonderful items in the back of their taxis! So what are the most common?

  1. Spare change – instead of falling down the back of the sofa they end up down the back of the taxi seat!
  2. Slippers – disposable footwear for the ladies who only do the heels from car to bar!
  3. Shoes – nothing more annoying than leaving your high heels in the taxi leaving you in the slippers or pumps for the big night out!
  4. Scarves, Hats and Gloves – NRC are going to open an accessories shop selling the biggest range of scarves, hats and gloves
  5. Mobile phones – nothing more annoying than leaving your phone in the taxi – you get the feeling that you’ve lost your right hand!
  6. Hair brushes – last minute touch up equipment for the night out get left in the taxi! We also get bucket loads of hair which we clean out daily!
  7. Socks – not the cleanest item to find in a taxi but there’s always a few odd socks to be found hidden under the seats of a taxi!
  8. Jewellery – some fabulous earrings, necklaces and bracelets end up under the seats of unfortunate passengers who rarely think to call NRC and claim their valuables!
  9. Make up – the full range of makeup – lipstick, blusher, mascara, foundation, eye shadow and primer! The taxi is the perfect place to apply the makeup when you are out of time. Unfortunately some pricey lipsticks get left behind and ultimately get dumped!
  10. False Teeth – believe it or not these have been found in our taxis! Not the most pleasant of item for a taxi driver to pick up. And what about the passenger who heads out without his or her teeth – they won’t be enjoying their dinner very much without teeth!

So people of Dublin – check the back seat of your NRC taxi before you leave – it may save you hundreds of euro in the long-run! NRC Taxis have a lost and found service so please call us and we’ll do our best to find your valuables! Call NRC Taxis on 01 677 2222 today!

Getting to the big concerts in Dublin Summer 2015

marlay_park_rathfarnham_dublin_concerts_72772What a smashing summer of amazing events we’ve had so far and we’ve a lot more to look forward to! From Marlay Park to the Iveagh Gardens, the Aviva and not forgetting Croke Park for plenty music and GAA action.

Where ever you are going make sure you plan your journey to and from the venue well in advance and give yourself an additional 2 hours travel time! It may seem crazy but there is a huge volume of people heading to these gigs so traffic delays are inevitable! NRC are standing by to pick you up so just call us on 01 6772222 and we’ll get you as close to the venue as possible!

Marlay Park have an amazing line up with Avici on 3rd July, Paulo Nutini and Imelda May on July 4th and then Longitude Festival happening from July 17th to 19th featuring Hozier, The Vaccines, Alt J, The Chemical Brothers and loads more fantastic acts.

So how do you get there?! Marlay Park run a shuttle bus service from the city centre direct to Marlay Park. The shuttle bus service operates from Georges Quay in the city centre direct to Marlay Park http://www.marathonsportsbooking.ie/. The fare: from €10 and can be booked online in advance.

The Iveagh Gardens play host to a great mix of acts this summer. Paloma Faith on July 2nd, The Frames July 4 & 5, Chic featuring Niall Rogers on July 9th, St Vincent on July 10th and to finish it off Damien Rice on July 12th. If you’re up for a laugh get down to the Comedy Festival in The Iveagh Gardens from July 23rd to 2th.

As a city centre location The Iveagh Gardens is serviced by Dublin Bus, Luas and Dart. Entry is usually available through the gates at Harcourt Street.

The Script with Pharrell Williams take to the big stage in Croker on June 20th and later in the summer July 24th and 25th Ed Sheeran will be entertaining the crowds at Croke Park. On the GAA front the Leinster GAA football semi-final kicks off on June 28th, Leinster GAA hurling final on July 5th, Leinster GAA Final on 12th July and plenty more action to come over the summer months.

Getting to Croke Park is relatively straight forward as it’s close to the city centre and is serviced by bus, dart and trains. Access to the stadiums is restricted to specific gates based on your seat so make sure to check before arriving to the area.

Gig of the summer happens in the Aviva with AC/DC hitting the stage on July 1st! There is no parking around the stadium so to make life easy and get an NRC to and from the gig! 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.

SO there is plenty to choose from this summer. Just plan your route well in advance and have the NRC number 01 6772222 on your phone and go have some fun!
