Welcome to Dublin Chris, hopefully you will make it along to one of our meets sometime soon.
For a city of it's size, Dublin is very well serviced by photographic retailers. For film users, between John Gunn's camera shop on Camden St, near the city centre, http://www.johngunn.ie/ and Peter's (the fizz) http://www.thephotoshop.ie/ there is little, if anything, that cannot be easily obtained. Prices are very competitive vs UK and on-line prices, and both are a pleasure to do business with (no connection - just a satisfied customer!).
There are two locations that I know of where you can hire high-end scanners for scanning film:http://fire.ie/ and http://www.galleryofphotography.ie/.
I should also mention the Dublin Camera Club, http://www.dublincameraclub.ie/ . It has a full range of resources, including two fully equipped darkrooms, one of which has a 5x4 De Vere enlarger, and is also on Camden St.
