Maximum points would see Germany into the World Cup finals regardless of other results, and Low said that achieving it at home would be a reward for his chosen squad.
"Our starting position in the group is good," Reuters quotes Low as saying. "We have a lot of trust in the players we have nominated and want to quickly qualify for Brazil.
"Our clear aim is to seal our ticket with a win against Ireland in front of a home crowd."
Low has been in charge of the national side since 2006.
