Health insurance and give a birth for non EU spouse


I am EU citizen (Czech Republic) and my wife is from non EU country, but she has permanent residency in the Czech Republic. We consider relocating to Ireland (Dublin) - I have a job offer there. We plan that my wife will not work there - she will take care about the house / flat and we would like to have children soon.

My question is: is she eligible for public health insurance (as a non EU citizen, not working)? Would you recommend public insurance or private one (also for giving a birth)? Do you approximately know how much is private insurance per month? And how much is it for give a birth?

Thanks a lot!
