Do I need an adapter to plug my American GPS into my Irish rental car?

My brothers and I are going to Ireland for a week-long trip beginning Sunday. We'll be driving around the countryside in Clare, Galway and Kerry, and I'm bringing my car GPS along to help us navigate. Here's a quick last-minute question: is the power adapter jack in European cars the same as the one in American cars or do I need some sort of converter similar to the kind needed for household outlets?

Scam or great deal?

Is this a legit hotel booking site? Does anyone have any experience with, good or bad? I found a too good to be true rate for a hotel in Ireland (Trim Castle Hotel) that's about half the normal rate, but want to know I'm not going to be scammed when I give them money. Googling around isn't yielding anything in the way of reviews for this site. Thanks!

Potcheen. Poteen. Poitin. Does anybody know anything about the 'unlawfully distilled Irish liquor?' I'm writing a novel where one of the characters is attempting to become an expert on the drink. While I'm not looking to make the stuff myself, I'm interested on information ranging from history, legality, distillation. Anything really.

No surrender?

If Blair called for a referendum in Northern Ireland on joining Eire, which side would win? Has the higher birth-rate of Catholics made a difference? Is the increasing paramilitary disarmament indicative of a political climate in which a democratic handover could take place with an acceptably low level of violence?

How can I buy euros now to use in a few months?

EuroFilter: I'm going to Ireland in February and am quite concerned about the US Dollar's free-fall against the Euro. What's the best way to buy some Euros now so that at least some of my cash (about half what I'll spend there) is pegged at the current rate? Should I buy cash? How hard is that to take with me? Is there a way I can open an Irish bank account (a little interest would be nice)?
I know that the whole currency futures thing is very risky and I *could* lose money, but I'm just sayin.

3 Weeks in Europe

Let's say you're spending three weeks in Europe late this summer. The first week is in Denmark, the third is in Ireland. Where would you spend the second? You'd like to go somewhere off the beaten path (in other words not Paris, London, or Amsterdam), but don't want to spend too much time in transit. You'd rather go somewhere rural than urban, you have a limited budget, and you'd prefer culture to castles and cathedrals. Any suggestions?

Planning a traditional Irish Meal.

Being 1/2 Irish I really should know the answers to these questions, but I don't. This year I'm taking over the St. Patrick's Day dinner from my mom. 1) How much corned beef and cabbage do I need for 7 adults and three kids? 2) Is there a traditional Irish dessert (besides whiskey) that should be served afterwards? 3) What about appetizers? 4) Are the draft bottles of Guinness as good as the cans? 4b) Are they pint-sized? 5) Any other tips, other than not wearing orange?
