Set in the North Atlantic, the island of Ireland has a population of around 6.6 million souls. Land-based gambling in Ireland is thoroughly regulated since Ireland has always been on the front foot in this sector. Online regulation from this jurisdiction is not quite in place yet – though the process is under way. Foreign operators appear free to accept customers residing in Ireland and Ireland does not pursue legal action against players that play with foreign licensed operators whilst they are in the process of finalizing their own licensing procedures.


The above information is what we believe to be the the legal status of online gambling, however information on this topic is limited and hard to find. We accept no liability for any errors or ommissions. It is the reader’s responsibility to ensure that they know the legality of online gambling in their country before engaging with any online gambling service.
