Ian Stewart of Moynihan Court, Tallaght, was jailed for three years for the Firhouse raid in January 2010 and for snatching a woman's handbag at an ATM machine, three months earlier.
The Court of Criminal Appeal has found the sentence unduly lenient and increased it to a total of seven years.
However, the 36-year-old will still only serve three years in prison as the final four years have been suspended to acknowledge his commitment to drug rehabilitation.
