On a recent trip to Dublin city centre, I was walking up Abbey Street and noticed that GSM Solutions, which was formerly home to Dublin’s only Northside Bitcoin ATM is shut down, now replaced with a shop selling hemp goods. We had been in here several times to get bitcoin from their atm, as well as getting a Nintendo 3DS repaired and paying with bitcoin a while back.
The founders of the company were also heavily involved in the early days with the defunct Bitcoin Foundation of Ireland, as well as selling a POS system for selling bitcoin, and also the Bitex brokerage.
This closure means that there is now only one bitcoin atm located in Dublin, on the southside.
You can read all our articles about Irish Bitcoin ATMs to find one near you that's available to use.
We are often asked what's the handiest way to buy crypto in Ireland. You can get some first trade bonuses with Coinbase ($10 when you purchase your first $100). You can also buy mainstream crypto's with cards on CEX or Binance have one of the widest ranges of crypto's and tokens. Alternatively if you want to trade peer-to-peer, you can find a local broker on LocalCoinSwap. If you're not on , they now allow you to earn a few euros worth of crypto through their Earn section, and now let you withdraw crypto purchased on the platform to an external wallet (you still can't send it to the platform though)
