NOTE: National maps are available from other institutions such as the Central Statistics Office (CSO). The OSI is however considered to be the national mapping organization (NMO) for Ireland.
The OSI is governed by the ORDNANCE SURVEY IRELAND ACT, 2001 http://www.irishstatutebook.ie/2001/en/act/pub/0043/, which means that it is the states NMO but also a commercial enterprise.

Data are available via webmapping service called MapGenie http://www.osi.ie/Services/MapGenie.aspx with additional information provided here http://www.osi.ie/Services/MapGenie-Learn-More.aspx. Data are accessed this way via an institutional agreements between clients and OSI.
The data are machine readable as just explained but for a fee and the same is true for data available in bulk.
In terms of Intellectual Property OSI data are protected under the Copyright and related Act 2000 as discussed here it data are not available under an OPEN LICENCE, all OSI data are protected under the Copyright and related Act 2000 as discussed here http://www.osi.ie/Services/Copyright.aspx, and Copyright Permit CP1 and there are Licence Fees.

Data could be more granular. I sent a question to the Dept. of Finance regarding the availability of the data in a bulk download and did not receive an answer. I will therefore leave it as a NO.
The aggregated data that are publicly available at the program expenditure level but not available at the actual expenditure level, i.e. transactional level. There was some dispute here, and it was dediced to assume that these do exist even though a link is not provided, as to get to the programme level actual expenditures are required. http://databank.per.gov.ie/Expenditure.aspx
The suitable response here would be NOT APPLICABLE as there is no postal code system in Ireland at the moment.
A postal code system is under development. http://www.eircode.ie/. The data will not be FREE and not and OPEN LICENCE.
