What next for the eurozone?
Belgium's finance minister, Didier Reynders, who chaired the talks, said this was because the Irish government had not requested financial help. But he stressed that the EU was "ready to act" if needed.
There have also been reports that the UK is considering offering billions of pounds of direct loans to the country.
Ireland's government has repeatedly denied that it is seeking outside support.
What action should be taken to solve the financial crisis in the eurozone? Is the EU doing enough? Does the International Monetary Fund have a role to play? Do you live in the eurozone region?
