Default Irish Residence Permit (IRP)

Do UK nationals who set up residence in Ireland also receive the Irish Residence Permit (IRP)? Or is that just for EU citizens (or 3rd country nationals)?

Also, if someone is a UK citizen resident in Ireland, do they get their passport stamped when travelling to other EU countries?

That would only be if you are a non-EU/EEA citizen. Since British citizens continue to have the right to work and live here, it's not needed.
Apparently the stamps have been replaced:
https://www.schengenvisainfo.com/new...-checks/EU’s Entry/Exit System (EES) is set to become fully functional in May next year, though it has been reported that the EES may experience some delays.

The system will register entry and exit data and refusal of entry data of third-country nationals crossing EU’s external borders, including here Britons, which means that passport stamping will become unnecessary.

Right, so UK citizens living in Ireland do not receive any sort of residence card that they can show (along with their passport) when flying to other EU countries?

As for the link, it's old from 2021 and mentions not May of next year but May of 2022 which is long behind us.

How do they CURRENTLY keep track of your travel dates? Do they have all your travel info in the system or can they only go by passport stamps?

The UK and Eire are part of the Common Travel Area and citizens of the two countries have the right to live and work in the other country without any sort of visa or permit.
Whilst Eire is an EU member state, it isn't part of the Schengen zone so the Schengen borders code would apply. If that code is followed your passport is likely to be stamped when exiting and entering another EU member state which is part of the Schengen zone.

It only shows you have permission to remain in Ireland but when you go abroad only your passport/nationality counts.

For example, an IRP does not allow you to travel to or live freely in other EU countries. All existing international travel and immigration rules still apply. It is your responsibility to check what you need to enter other countries before you travel

Yes, of course, I'm just curious whether your passport still gets stamped when travelling to other EU countries. Because if you have a residency card from a Schengen-zone country then your UK passport doesn't get stamped regardless of which country is your first point of arrival into the Schengen area.

But, as Bomber Harris has already stated, Ireland is not part of the Schengen area.

I think that is very fair question and in your situation, it is something I would want to know.

The good news for you is that you can apply for a much sought after Irish passport once you have been resident in Ireland for 5 years or after 3 years if you have an Irish spouse or civil partner.

That's something to look forward to!
