    WHY on earth would you?
    It's part of the United Kingom, which means United Kingdom of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland
    you dont even need one to visit from Southern Ireland, or to go there.

    I think its only a photo ID but each airline might be different.

    Family of mine have traveled to and from Ireland in the past with no passport, but you'll need some picture form of ID at least.

    Best to check the airlines T & C's or phone them up.

    Photo ID - Driving licence would suffice.

    From memory, Ryan air are the only cheapie airline that insist on you providing a Passport to fly anywhere, but as they don't fly from NI to GB you should be ok with valid Photo ID.

    (In theory, you don't need a passport to fly within the EU, but try doing it in practice for an exercise in futility)

    Cheers, Des.

    Oh, didn't know they flew out of the city, would never use them myself anyway ;)

    Anyway, here are the ryanair terms, FYI.

    THE ONLY FORMS OF TRAVEL DOCUMENTS ACCEPTED ON RYANAIR FLIGHTS ARE:

    * A valid passport – ( see below - */and ** below)
    * A valid National Identity Card issued by the government of a European Economic Area (EEA) country. (Only the following EEA countries issue National Identity Cards acceptable for carriage on Ryanair flights: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Finland, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Italy, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland)
    * A valid German Government issued Kinderausweis travel document
    * A valid Italian Certificato Di Nascita which has been endorsed as "VALIDO PER L'ESPATRIO" valid for travel and signed by "IL QUESTORE". It is the passenger's personal responsibility to ensure that this document meets the requirements of immigration and other governmental authorities at the destination airport - see ** below.
    * A valid UN Refugee Convention Travel Document – (issued in accordance with Article 28(1) of the 1951 UN Convention, by a Government in place of a valid passport.)
    * A valid Convention Travel Document – (issued in accordance with Article 27 of the 1954 UN Convention for Stateless Persons, by a contracting state in place of a valid passport)

    RYANAIR RESERVES THE RIGHT TO CANCEL YOUR RESERVATION WITHOUT REFUND AND TO DENY YOU BOARDING IF YOU DO NOT COMPLY WITH THE ABOVE TRAVEL REQUIREMENTS AND ADVANCE PASSENGER INFORMATION

    As you can see, photo driving licence isn't listed. I do know people who have been refused boarding because they only had a photo DL and not a passport.

    Cheers, Des.

    Must have changed it.

    I used my driving licence when i went to belfast and back, and on the way home from Dublin - within 2 weeks of each other last year.

    That is only true of Schengen states and I have done it a few times. These flights are treated as internal and are screened off in smaller airports from non-Schengen destinations. No passport asked for, you are just waved onto your flight. I booked my tickets over the interweb and got them out of machines at the airport to save on boarding time. Never even had to show any sort of ID at all except my boarding pass.

    The non-passport agreement between UK and Eire also exists between the three Scandinavian countries, but you might be advised to carry one as a Japanese friend of mine was challenged boarding a ferry at Copenhagen for Malmo back in the day. Never asked me for mine, although I was travelling with him.

    I think you do need one. We flew from London to Scotland last weekend and we needed passports to fly (!!)

    I always use my passport for flights as there are that many different T&Cs with each airline..
    But just for education purposes Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom (England, Scotland Wales & Northern Ireland)
