>>> "We will be leaving from ireland"
----- Do not know what shots you get growing up in Ireland but normally us from the States have gotten all we need through the years.
Have you gotten a Tetanus shot. Traveling anywhere you should have at least that.
http://www.vaccineinformation.org/tetanus/qandavax.asp
That site list a lot of info on Shots.
Hepatitis A (http://wwwn.cdc.gov/travel/yellowBookCh4-HepA.aspx)
I have that too.

http://wwwn.cdc.gov/travel/destinationAruba.aspx (http://wwwn.cdc.gov/travel/destinationAruba.aspx) Good info for travel to Aruba. Doesn't matter where you travel, locally or internationally, speaking from experience I always recommend Hepatitis A (http://wwwn.cdc.gov/travel/yellowBookCh4-HepA.aspx) or immune globulin (IG). Hep A can very easily be trasferred via food or water no matter whether at your local Fastfood joint or anywhere else in the world. Don't know if you have enough time though :( before your trip. Otherwise, you should be just fine. :)
