I thought "suimiúil" = interesting, and "spéisiúil" = special?

Nope. It's a false cognate. spéisiúil = interesting as well.

Have you an interesting or have you "got" an.... Both should work

Wait, why does it turn down "special"? I thought that was another possible translation...

Speisialta is special. Spéisiúil comes from a different root spéis meaning fondness or interest. What out for the fadas (accents); they make a difference!
