Baggot Inn is the first pub in Ireland to accept Bitcoin. The launch of payment gateway took place on 4th of March and attracted a small crowd of bitcoin enthusiasts.
Glenn was the lucky one to get the first paint paid in bitcoin. Then, Peter delivered a joke on number of confirmations required to get a drink, as the excitement was causing some drinks to stuck half-filled beside the tap.
iPhone users had few bumps on the way, but generally transactions were processed nearly instantaneously. An Open WiFi network was in place to allow mobile wallet payments.
In coming week or two the Baggot Inn is planning to host a Bitcoin ATM. The machine is a Robocoin ATM capable of both vending bitcoin and dispensing cash.
