Yes, Ireland is on the Euro (the U.K. is not).

I'm not sure I understand the problem. A Euro isn't worth a dollar, but so what? Is the problem that he isn't getting as good a deal from his local bank as what the paper shows for exchange rates?

Nobody gets a better rate than MC and Visa, because of the volume they do. And the net amount comes through in dollars on your statement.
