What is the best Irish-English and/or English-Irish dictionary out there? Maybe one suitable for a begginer studying Ó Siadhail.

These seem to be the "standard" dictionaries, and they are excellent:

Foclóir Gaeilge-Béarla - Niall Ó Dónaill
English-Irish Dictionary - Tomás De Bhaldraithe

I find the Collins pocket dictionary very good. It's got standard phrases as well as meaning given, and (as they boast on the cover)it's in colour!

Ádh mor,

Oliver.

I find the Oxford University Press Minidictionary very useful. 100K words and phrases and pocket sized in the bargain.
