Just a few quick tips on driving.
First, a good car rental company I discovered on a package trip a few years back is Dan Dooley Car Rental. For some reason, they aren't well known outside of Ireland but I have found them the cheapest and with a bigger fleet in more locations than the usual majors. On subsequent trips, I've rented from them again and been very happy with them.
Second, if you're not used to driving on the left (See - I didn't say wrong) side, I would recommend paying the extra for an automatic. Shifting with the left hand while learning to think left sided is one task too many, especially in the larger towns.
Thirdly, roundabouts aren't as tough as they look. It takes planning and careful merging to avoid either being stuck circling for hours or upsetting those that know what they're doing. If traffic is heavy - the outside lane is for turning onto the next street (90 degree) or straight (180). The inside lanes are for going either straight thru(180) or the 3rd turnoff (270). On light traffic, things are looser.
Finally, avoid driving in the larger cities (esp. Dublin and Limerick) as much as possible. The roads aren't built for the traffic, finding parking is a pain, and it really cuts into your drinking! Drive to wherever you're staying and use public transport.
