I will be arriving wiht my 1 year old (think adult Goat with ADD) into dublin airport on Wednesday evening with luggage and no buggy (long story dont ask). Will I be able to get a taxi, is it possible that some taxis have baby seats or booster seats? Do I have to get a bus (with Goat with ADD)? What do you think? Anyone do this?

Not sure how comfortable I would be bringing ds in a car without a seat but think this gets the drivers off the hook with regards to having to carry carseats or boosters...
Edited to add - maybe you can prebook a specifically child friendly taxi?? Local airport taxi companies might oblige and would also be worth a call??
Sounds like you are going to have your hands full!! DH's dad is a taxi driver and he always said they were exempt from child car seat law. This sounded mad to me so I checked it out and it seems he is right
SG - I got caught once from the aiport - long story, cancelled flight etc etc blah blah and they had to give us a taxi home - DD (think teenage style attitude junior chimpanzee) had no car seat, I was bricking it and made him drive so slowly, but anyway - seemed he was exempt from the law and we did get home safe.
Not ideal, but you won't be the first who's done it.

Thanks so much guys
I'm very interested in this topic as I don't drive. Sorry to hijack your thread but does anyone know if you can take a pram on without disasembling it if it is a wheelchair accessible taxi? I know you can do this in Scotland but I am unsure about here?
You can go with your youngster on your lap in taxis here in the event that you need to as scampibear says taxis are excluded from the auto situate controls.
