Ability to buy games while visiting a foreign country? (VAT Regulation Restrictions)

Hi, I live in the UK, but I am on an extended stay in Ireland at the moment. So when I try and buy a game I fill in my (UK) billing address for the VAT regulations, I hit this roadblock:

Confirm payment

Sorry, we can't accept your purchase at this time due to the updated 2015 VAT regulations. Your billing address does not match your purchase location (IE).

So, I can't buy anything on itch until I'm back in the UK (presumably aside from cheekily using a VPN or something)? This is less than ideal. Notably, other platforms where I might buy games (Steam, Humble) don't seem to have the same restriction. Is there some solution I'm missing?
