Basic information:

Entry:  Ireland is not part of the Schengen area, therefore any flight from/to another country must arrive/leave to/from an international airport and clear customs/immigration controls. If you wish to land at a domestic airport, you have to inform the customs/immigration services 24/48 hours in advance. Please check the procedures for your specific airport.  
FPL: An FPL is compulsory for any flight which is partly or entirely carried out in a controlled airspace and for international flights (i.e. also for flights to Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom). An FPL must be filed at least 60 minutes prior to the flight.
Microlights: Microlight aircraft need permission from the Irish CAA. The application form can be found
