Dublin and Limerick will soon be home to the world’s largest Snapchat store, as Snapcafe, the company behind the social network, has unveiled its plans to expand into the country.
Dublin and Limington are home to Snapcafes in Dublin, Limerick and Cork.
The new shop in Limerick has been named the Snapcaffee, and will be able to accept up to 100 Snapchat cards and up to 50 Snapchat messages per transaction.
Users in Dublin can register for the service, which will initially be available only to residents of the city, in the city’s shopping district.
The service will also be available to the public in Limbo, Limavady, Monaghan, the Limerick Bay and the west end of Limerick.
“We are thrilled to announce the launch of the Snapshop,” said Snapcaffeine CEO Joe Kelly.
“Dublin is the most active destination for our users.
The world’s top destinations for digital commerce, the Dublin location is a perfect fit for Snapshop.
We look forward to building our business here.”
The company, which is owned by Snap Inc, has more than 4 million users in the country, with more than 7.7 million of those coming from Ireland.
“The Irish people are passionate about sharing their digital life with friends and family,” said John Hynes, Snap Inc’s chairman.
“Snapchat is a great platform to make our brand more accessible to our users in Ireland and across the globe.”
Dublin’s main shopping district, Regency Square, will be the first location in the nation to have the service.
