Debutant Imamul Haq steadied Pakistan after their first three wickets fell for just 14 runs in chase of 160-run target set by Ireland, who are playing their first-ever Test.
Azhar Ali was the first man to go after scoring just two runs. He was caught in the slips by Paul Stirling in the first over of the innings by Tim Murtagh.
Harris Sohail was caught in the gully after scoring seven, followed soon after by the experienced Asad Shafiq who was bowled by Murtagh. Haq was joined Babar Azam after Shafiq fell.
Kevin O’Brien failed to add any runs to his overnight score of 118 before swinging at a wide delivery from Mohammad Abbas and edging to first slip. It was the first ball he faced.
Abbas also took the wickets of Boyd Rankin (6) and Tyrone Kane (14), who were both bowled, to finish with figures of 5-66. He had nine wickets for the match.
Asked to follow on, Ireland had resumed on 319-7.
The Irish are playing their inaugural test match in the longest format after being awarded test status last June.
