Frequently asked questions about travelling in Europe

Do you need a passport to visit Ireland?

Technically, if you're a British national then you're not required to have your passport when you're travelling into Ireland from the UK. However, your ID will be checked, and you may be asked for proof of your nationality. Although not officially required, we would still recommend taking your passport with you to avoid any bother at the airport. Make sure your passport is valid for the duration of your stay too, but it doesn't need to be valid any longer than that.
