Does Ireland have an equivilent of CABE in England, or Architecture and Design Scotland, to advise on design matters? Im working outside Ireland for quite a few years but I havent seen such a group whose advice can be used by LAs in determining applications and plan making.

Unfortunately no. Planners (geography students/statisticians) decide if a building is aesthetically appropriate.

I think this was originally set up with similar intentions.
Dept of Env produce Guidance documents for Local Authorities - some on design among this list.
advice service for Local Authorities, on impact on heritage only. Also do publications.
