I am considering buying a full electric car in UK - do I have to pay VRT on this type of car?

Pretty much no. Technically any electric car being registered for the first time in Ireland gets a rebate on its VRT, up to a maximum of €5,000. That means effectively that you’ll pay no VRT unless the price of the car pushes the VRT rate above €5,000 of course.
