For friends and family visiting us here in Cork City, I have compiled a list of resources and links I find interesting and useful. They include places to go, favorite restaurants, how to get to/around Cork, and what to pack when visiting.
I learned that it costs more to take a taxi on a Sunday than on a regular weekday. There is evidently a Commission for Taxi Regulation that independently develops and maintains regulatory framework for small public service vehicles, such as taxis, wheelchair accessible taxis, hackneys, and limousines. There is even a website with helpful answers to common consumer questions... http://www.taxiregulator.ie/consumer-FAQs.html
