I don't remember the name of the taxi company but I do have what I think is an amusing story. I got off the train in Carrick-on Shannon wanting to go to the Bush Hotel. There was no taxi at the station so I asked the station agent about a taxi and he gladly called one for me. While I was waiting, a local resident, who also had just gotten off the train asked me if I minded if we shared the ride. I told him that was fine. The taxi arrived and we went into town and let the local out and the driver charged him 5 Euro. He drove me around the block to my hotel and only charged me 2 Euro. I was amazed that the local resident was charged more than a tourist.

If you are ever in Carrick the Bush Hotel is a great place to stay. Friendly,very efficient, helpful staff and the building itself is like something out of a Miss Marple-Agatha Christie novel. great Place.

Sorry to see you had a bad experience with this taxi driver. Sadly, there are two or three possible suspects in my opinion. If you can give me any description of him or the vehicle he was in, I might be able to help you report him to the taxi regulator in Ireland.

Idiots like this should not hold taxi licences.

Carrick on Shannon is a beautiful, friendly and welcoming town and it's too bad that your visit was spoiled by this experience which is not the norm.

My email is info@carricktaxis.ie.
