The northwestern hemisphere. Why?

Ireland lies north of the equator, which locates it in the northern hemisphere.

Ireland lies (just) west of England. And the Prime Meridian (which crosses through Greenwich in London) marks the boundary where the eastern and western hemispheres meet. Ireland is west of that, and so, in the western hemisphere.
