However, we were in there today for a coffee, and noticed that the bitcoin ATM that has been there for the past year has now been removed. We asked the staff what was going on with it, they declined to comment, but this now leaves only one bitcoin ATM in the city, at GSM Solutions available for people to walk up to and get bitcoin. (14/5/19 update, there are now additional ATM’s in Dublin and Cork)
We did ask in relation to the status of bitcoin in the shop, and they stated that they are going to continue accepting bitcoin for the purchase of food and drink in the café.
We’ve put in a request for comment from the café owners, and will update this story if we get a response, or if we find out if the atm will be in a new location.
Update: The owners of the café have come back with a comment, that the bitcoin ATM was being hosted in their venue on a 1 year trial, and the owner of the ATM will be looking for a more suitable location to host it with higher footfall.

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)
