Hi sgr

I recently got a couple tyres repaired at Butler's Garage in Harolds Cross, they have a huge selection of tyres, very reasonably priced, helpful guys too, you could give them a ring? 4964542

Many places will match the prices provided by this site (the sites prices don't include a fitting/balancing cost).
Get your prices from here and then see if your local tyre centre can match it for the same rubber.

I tried to get a tyre fitter to match them and he wasn't even close. So I bought from eiretyres and had the fitter fit them.

Did exactly the same, checked a couple of local places and none could come close on price (kwik-fit said they would but the tyre turned out to be some cheap-ass knock-off "that are exactly the same" )

My last set of tyres (Michelin PS1's) cost €220 fitted per tyre (Kimmage Tyres).
I decided to get the highly recommended PS2's (225/45/17) this time - reputed to be far superior to PS1's, and one of the best available generally.
I ordered them from eiretyres.com and they arrived in a couple of days. Relatively speaking, I'm very happy with the €170/tyre cost.
I just rang Dave McCann tyres of Coolmine (recommended previously on this forum).
He told me that the vast majority of tyre outfits would only fit tyres supplied by themselves - he likened it to the scenario of showing up at a restaurant with a hunk of beef and asking them to cook it for you .
To my great suprise (and disbelief), he said he could have supplied and fitted the same PS2's for €183 (plus a pinch of salt!).
After some persuasion he agreed (as a favour) to fit and balance the tyres at €15 per tyre.
