Does adding naar to ik wil change the meaning from I want to I want to go ?

How would then be 'I want to Ireland' in Dutch?

why is "gaan" skipped here?

I would have said : "Ik wil naar Ierland gaan!"

No idea if it helps, but Germany has the same thing - "Ich will nach Irland", or "Ich will nach Hause" for "I want to go home", since the direction is implicit in the "nach/naar" it can be dropped here, I think.
