You cannot I suppose. As far as I know most major ISPs are more or less
into implementing IPv6, but it is still far from a production service.
No harm however in asking Eircom if they do not need customers for test.
There are 2 ISPs in Ireland I know of who supply IPv6 to all customers,
but they are both outside Dublin (Galway and Louth) and my feeling is
that you ask about Dublin.
For the moment I would recommend IPv6-in-IPv4 tunnel from www.sixxs.net
(HEAnet is their Dublin's PoP). It works great for me.
