What kind of power plug is used in Ireland?
Is it the typical plug used in most of Europe? Or is it the British one?

To be more specific, From Wikipedia:
The British Standards 1363 plug is used in the United Kingdom and other countries. Compatible plugs standards are IS 401 and IS 411 (Ireland), MS 589 (Malaysia) and SS 145 (Singapore), and SASO 2203 (Saudi Arabia).
This is how it looks:
Bath and shower rooms
In the United Kingdom and Ireland, there is a two-pin socket for use with electric shavers in bath or shower rooms. It derives from the unearthed version of 5–6 A British plug and it has 0.2 in (5.08 mm) diameter pins 5⁄8 in (15.88 mm) apart. The sockets for this plug are often designed to accept unearthed CEE 7/16, US or Australian plugs as well. Sockets are often able to supply either 230 V or 115 V. In wet zones, they must contain an isolation transformer compliant with BS 3535.
For more details, check the electrical outlet website for a list of the electrical plug types for the whole world.
As others have mentioned, it's the same as the UK.
Ireland & the UK are quite culturally close (and were the same country until 1922), so anything bought in the UK would have to work in Ireland. There are numerous 'high street' UK chains operating in Ireland selling the same merchandise.
