In February I booked a trip for October, 196k Qantas points DRW-SIN-DXB-MUN rtn on Emirates business (from Singapore, have to make do with Jetstar between Darwin and Singapore). I followed previous advice of be flexible with dates and travel off-peak and you'll have a better chance.

220k isn't quite enough for business class for 2 from PER to EU return I'm afraid. It might be just about enough for 2 one ways. So you can consider flying one way in business and another one way in LCC like Air Asia (as most one ways with full service airline will be very expensive).

So you really only have 110K points, if you need to cover 2 people. Which is probably not going to cover much of the way to Ireland. In terms of availablity, I have in the past found using Qantas Pts for Emirates out of Singapore to be really useful. Getting to Singapore from Australia is cheap, and you can do day flights to and from. So you can certainly go out in business and back in Economy to Dublin with Emirates from Singapore. But you are looking at about 140K each for that option. Flying business out of DXB to Dublin would be cheaper, but the return flight from Aus to DXB will not be much less than just flying all the way to Dublin and collecting the points.
