They are accepted at a few places but you will loose out by a lot. Better to take your euros there and exchange at selective places like nortline etc. Do a search on exchange and money you will find a few places. We got a lot better rate than here in the UK so I think you will than in Ireland.

Do shops in Dublin accept sterling ? they do, but the FX rate will be heavily in the shop's favour.

Same with the euro in Bpest.

There are ATM's everywhere.
