e-readers are now available to buy online in Ireland from Amazon
Up until March 2013 - Irish residents who wanted to buy a Kindle
from Amazon had to order it from Amazon.com - the US site. But now
it is possible to get Kindles delivered to Ireland from Amazon
in the UK. (Free delivery on orders over £25)

The Kindle Fire is still not available for Irish residents.
The new Kindle Touch Kindle Touch PaperWhite
is now available for delivery to Ireland .
Paperwhite is both thinner and lighter than the KIndle touch, this
however could be attributed to the absence of a headphone jack and
the lesser storage capacity of 2Gb. Although this may seem like
a downside to the Paperwhite, 2Gb of storage should be more than
enough for even the most avid of readers with the ability to hold
up to 1,100 books. The device comes in models both with and without
built-in wi-fi, with the former you will be able to wirelessly download
e-books from the Kindle store and receive recommendations for future
books based on your library. Staying true to previous Kindle's form
the battery life in the Paperwhite clocks in at up to eight weeks.
This should be more than enough battery life to be able to bring
the e-reader on holiday without any worries of it ever running out.
