Tips:

They left a strange coffee container on the table what should I do?

You can buy this type of coffee maker in the USA too, but I only know of a few people that have one. I believe these units can be used for tea and coffee.

Arriving at the appointed breakfast time we find juice, cereal and a container of brewing coffee containing a plunger. Usually, with in 5-10 minutes, the proprietor appears, presses the plunger down and announce the coffee is ready. A few times though the busy proprietor seemed to forget about the brewing coffee. Eventually, overtaken by my caffeine cravings, I would take the vessel in hand and slowly press the plunger down and pour the coffee in to the awaiting cups.

I have no idea how long one should allow the coffee to brew before pressing the grounds down through the container.

Will I need a power converter for Ireland?

Maybe; depending on what electrical items you take with you will likely need a plug adapter and a power converter. Both the north and south of ireland use the British three prong electrical plugs.

Voltage in northern ireland is set for 240V AC and in the south at 230V AC. Many camera, cell phone and electric razors sold today have battery chargers able to switch from 120V to 240V. You can usually determine if you have a dual volt battery charger (or electrical device) by checking the electrical rating on the device. Or, if you can find it, read the instruction booklet that came with the device. If you have a dual voltage device you will not need to get a power converted but you will need an adaptor plug for Ireland's three prong electrical reciprocals. If one of your devices are not dual voltage you will need a power convert in addition to the three prong adaptor plug. A power converted rated for 240V to 120V conversion will work in southern Ireland. Do not use a three prong power adaptor on an appliance rated only 120V with out a power converter.

Hint: If you arrived in the UK or Ireland from Europe, have a two prong power converter but not the three prong adaptor, look closely in the bathroom. Occasional, I have seen two prong reciprocals. in the fluorescent light fixtures.
