Don't let them feed you that old line, the VIN tells them all of that stuff, if they take the time to look.

Have your insurance company look at what Golf were sold in Ireland and they will probably find that the only golf sold there was a standard. So I believe that you would have an S Golf, S for standard.

but it doesn't say on the logbook that its and S ? am fed up at this stage because the insurance company are willing to insure me by my VIN but they are taking the piss about a model

Have you considered trying ANOTHER insurance company? Maybe a 2nd insurance company won't be a pain in the ass, like this one is...

well if a change i will lose my year ncb but managed to get it sorted they foned vw and vw told them what a told them and there happy enough to change it
