Can your student get her hands on _Sources for Early Modern Irish History, 1534-1641_ (Cambridge, 1985)? There's a useful chapter entitled "Archival collections," which would tell her what's where.

Luc Borot's student interested in Cromwellian Ireland might well start with T. C. Barnard's appropriately titled "Cromwellian Ireland" (Oxford University Press, 1975), which contains a brief guide to manuscripts.
