This >from Rootsweb:

Texas. Galveston-Bemen project. Details immigrant ship arrivals
at the Port of Galveston, Texas, 1865-1896, with arrival and
departure data, passenger list availability (citations included)
and transcribed passenger lists taken >from newspaper accounts
and souvenir passenger lists, alternative sources, and an index
of surnames on the passenger lists available >from other sources.

also: First you can go to the Texas Seaport Museum website, which I
recently learned of:
and print out a research form request to have them search their
130,000-name database of immigrants arriving at the port of Galveston
between 1846 and 1948. The data was collected >from arrival lists now in
the custody of the U.S. National Archives, supplemented by names that
appeared in the Galveston Daily News. Although this database is not
currently available online, the search service is very reasonable ($10).
You simply supply a surname, first name, and year of arrival (Eire)
