I have a Iranian passport but I also have the biometrics visa from Ireland as well. Do I need a visa to have a connection flight from Amsterdam?

Your Irish visa exempts you in any case from the airport transit visa requirement.

It does not exempt you from the regular Schengen visa requirement, should your journey require one (e.g. if you have two lay-overs in the Schengen area). Without such a visa, you cannot visit the city during your layover either.
