Cabs in Dublin

Hi - out of curiosity, how reasonable are cab fares in and around Dublin? I am traveling to Dublin with my family next month and one of the activities we are looking at doing is visiting the Merry Ploughboy pub for dinner and their show.

There are 5 of us, and my dad is not keen on using the shuttle (gets car sick in large buses) so I am curious how reasonable the cab fare for 5 would be from the city center to the Merry Ploughboy? Is it even possible to get a cab for 5 people?

Not familiar with the place, but maybe you can avail yourselves of this offer from the pub website:

20% Discount on taxi fares

You can call Xpert Taxis on +353 (0)1 6670777 to avail of a 20% discount on the metered fare for all trips to and from the Merry Ploughboy Pub.

You can book the cab on the day you are coming to the pub, just mention the discount at the time of booking.

You should have no problem getting a cab suitable for 5 people

You can use this for a gauge for prices.

But definitely with 5 of you I would get a cab.

This is a great local app for Taxis


There is no call out charge. You get a photo and details of your driver. It will give you precise pick up times. Never more than a 3-4 min wait if you are away from the main thoroughfare

We found taxi fares to be reasonable! And the friendly drivers were some of the nicest locals we chatted with!
