I can't really see the logic of doing everything else but trying to join the Garda if that is what you want to do....
That said, the joining qualifications listed on their site are the minimum and with competition the actual qualifications of those accepted are probably higher. But if you don't try you'll never know.
Your post seems to suggest that you have a big problem with commitment and hard work to achieve anything, so I don't know if you'll have what it takes to get through the course and qualify... For example, Guards are responsible for prosecuting people in the lower courts, that means they are up against legal professionals and they need to have a sufficient command of the law to take on the professionals, so there is a lot of hard exacting study needed as well as physical program.

The only hesitation i have with applying with the garda is that if i have that experience with life i do feel like it’s a career i’ll stay with (i’ll only know once i try for it) i’m just a bit worried that i wont have that time to “live” a little before i go into the garda such as traveling to the uk for a few months working stuff like that if you get me?
Irish army would be a shout but the 5 years contract really puts me off it
