Never been to Ireland so can't comment, but in my experience in Scotland, often the best places are the ones you find yourself.. go exploring down the single track farm road and you may stumble on a deserted beach or cove .. who knows what you'll find.. it's all part of the journey..

Seasoned wild campers are often reluctant to share good places, otherwise they can become overused.. and 'not so good' ..

Fair enough,we usually do pub car parks as we're big (Ahem) drinkers ! just imagined there to be tiny if no pub car parks over there!

Although wild camping in Ireland is technically illegal, everyone does it it is the norm, spent 2 weeks there only one night on a site. Harbors & piers usually have a water tap for the fishermen often have to drive down the pier as it's at the end, fill up in the evening when the fishermen have gone then you won't be in there way. Most garages will let you fill with water. Emptying the the loo, public toilets just leave it cleaner than you found it, garage toilets, not normally a problem.
Some photos in my gallery.

More years ago than I care to remember (20) so possibly of no use now I spent a week fishing beaches just south of Dublin. .. Bray,Greystones,Kilcoole are names which come to mind..
There was easy access to most of them and plenty of parking to be had close to them..no waste facilities then.
I don't remember them as been somewhere I would rush back to , but the west coast was a different matter... really enjoyed that but tended to use sites on that trip.
Have a great time.

Generally wild camping in Ireland isn't a problem.
I have wilded but mostly on the west and north west of the country.
There is sites down the east, water won't be a problem.

I go on the 11th June arrive in Belfast then immediately off to Dublin, stay 3 nights, go watch a couple of average football teams, then into Wicklow down to Cork, and up the West Coast. Watching a programme on tv currently, called wild Ireland and taking notes. Then up to giants Causeway then home on the 24th.

OOps purpose of thread I intend to wildcamp as often as possible, using as many of the advised sites and pubs as I can, pay for dinner and Guinness, cannot be bad.
