25 percent irish isn’t going to cut it sorry. You need to have a parent that’s from the country in order to do so .

If you prove you've an Irish grandparent you are entitled to an Irish passport

I know that you have already chosen best answer, but I have been looking into it myself. First you need the certificates to prove you are related to an Irish grandparent. Then you need to apply to appear on the foreign births register and then, once accepted, you can apply for an Irish passport. Apparently it takes a long time and costs.
278 Euros for the birth register and takes up to 12 months.
Have decided to wait and see before going ahead.

Contact the consulate. Why did you give best answer to such a stupid answer? US immigration is not going to be able to help you.

You need to have either a parent or grandparent born in Ireland who was still a citizen when you were born, and the documentation to prove this. Then contact the nearest Irish Embassy or Consulate and ask them.

Once you have proof one of your parents or grandparents was an Irish citizen when you were born you apply at the nearest Irish Consulate.
