Era II is the best VST for Medieval and European folk instruments by far. As I recall, it includes excellent, true legato samples of all the instruments you mention and then some. There is also a fantastic vocal library add on including tavern singers and female voice by Celica Soldream!

 

Nvm, I just saw you're looking for freeware...

There's an ok uilleann pipe sound included with kontakt player default instruments.

For a harp and dulcimer, you could try this: http://www.dskmusic.com/dsk-world-stringz/ 

 

For all these instruments though, you could try searching for free sfz libraries. I know I had a few on my old pc. Lots of people sample instruments like these for fun and put them up for free on music forums and such. You'll have to look around a bit to find decent ones though.

I should probably tell the reason WHY I need more/better Celtic/Irish VSTs. I plan on remaking various Zelda tracks in various Celtic/Irish genres. Already started on Clocktown (need clock sounds too), TP Hyrule Field, and The Great Sea. Using Kontakt free 5 for now.
