A dry Irish stout is an offshoot of a London Porter.  Originally stouts were high in alcohol and very strong in taste and were called Stout Porters and later shortened to Stout.  The Dry Irish Stout is much lower alcohol and lighter in flavor to be a more drinkable beer.  Guiness is one of the breweries to make the style popular and had a heavy emphasis on darker grains.  They began using black malt, roasted barley and later on flaked barley, which increased attenuation and mouth feel.
