The visitors took the lead after 48 minutes through Martin Caine but Dawkes soon set up Ricky Taylor to equalise.
Irchester regained the lead against the run of play when Shipp conceded a penalty against Benjamin, who got up to blast home before Dawkes' late penalty earned Rovers a share of the points.
Eynesbury finish the season with nine wins from their 30 games. They lie ninth but could drop to 11th depending on other results.
Manager Dean Shipp said: "Apart from the cup run at the tail end of the season, it has been a disappointing year.
"I've asked the players to take a look at themselves, their attitude and commitment. The amount of players we have lost due to work shifts has been frustrating so I have thrown the gauntlet down to the players to show their commitments.
"Craig Langham and Scott Kingsbury have been plus points since they joined and, hopefully, we can round of the season with some cup success."
n Goals from Stuart Harper, Chris Langham and Ian Dawkes helped Eynesbury into the South Midlands Floodlit Cup semi-final. Rovers defeated Oxhey Jets 3-2 and will take on Royston Town on Tuesday. The match at Hall Road is a 7.45pm kick-off.
