What we have done is to stay up as late as the people do that you are visiting in Ireland or Italy or Japan and go to bed at that time. THe next day usually is without jet lag.
I read once that it helped to put brown paper bags inside your shoes. Of course now, they ask you to remove your shoes. The bags flew out of my shoes, it was embarrassing.
Most important is to stay hydrated. Drink lots of water.
Then depending on the time difference, push yourself in the other direction. Try to stay up late (traveling west), or get up extra early (traveling east) to begin the adjustment process.
Some people take melatonin, that can help adjust your clock as well, especially if you're an older female, we stop producing it as well after we hit our mid-30s.
I have travelled around the world and my simple solution will be having enough rest between flights.
As long as you can managed to have enough rest for your body, it will take care of the jet lag.
It is a matter of routine to me. When my body needs me to sleep, then I will sleep so that when I wake up, I will be full of energy. So, when it comes to jet lag, it will not have much influence to me.
I don't know how to prevent jet lag, but I know how to combat it. When you cross time zones and arrive at your destination, stay up and don't take any naps. Go to bed at your regular time in the time zone you are in, not by the time zone of where you left. If you do that, it helps to ease the jet lag symptoms for the next several days. Sleeping when you first arrive at your destination is the worst thing you can do. It wrecks your internal clock. If you do as I advised, your internal clock adjusts itself.
