Ireland recovered from a nervy start but had to endure match-ending injuries to Simon Zebo and Jonathan Sexton as they trailed 6-0 at half-time.
The Irish forwards picked up the baton in the second half, lifting their efforts in the scrum and maul. Sexton's replacement Ronan O'Gara, who was making a record 127th appearance, kicked two penalties either side of James Haskell's sin-binning.
The England flanker saw yellow for infringing at a 57th minute ruck. The resulting kick was nailed by O'Gara to draw Ireland level, but the visitors crucially managed to score six more points before Haskell's return.
Farrell followed up on good work from his forwards, slotting two surefooted kicks for a 12-6 scoreline. Ireland got back into scoring range five minutes only for O'Gara to pull a kickable penalty wide with time running out.
England produced the stronger finish, driven on by their captain and man-of-the-match Chris Robshaw. Farrell flung a final penalty attempt wide, but Stuart Lancaster's men did not need it as they made it two wins out of two in the 2013 Championship.
