$cat /etc/services | grep irc
shows that port 194 is typically used for irc (unless you're using irc
over ssl or something special).
returns the following:
irc.debian.org CNAME irc.freenode.net
irc.freenode.net A 184.108.40.206
irc.freenode.net A 220.127.116.11
irc.freenode.net A 18.104.22.168
irc.freenode.net A 22.214.171.124
irc.freenode.net A 126.96.36.199
irc.freenode.net A 188.8.131.52
