I'm a UK citizen (born in Manchester). I don't have a passport, photo driving licence, or any other form of photo ID. Can I travel to Ireland? 
Regards, Steve

Hello Steve.
I'm no expert on customs or passport controls but I would advise you to apply for a UK passport and driving licence before travel. No matter where you go, you will be asked for ID.
Enjoy your travels.

Hi Steve, you definitely cannot travel to the island of Ireland without photo ID - passport recommended but driving licence or similar national identity card minimum. Your transport provider will be able to advise - some carriers accept driving licence but generally it's a passport you need.

Hello, Steve.

As Conor suggests, before travel you need to apply for a UK passport. Besides, most airlines and other transport providers will ask you to provide a photographic ID. For more information, please have a look at our travel advice page.

I hope this helps and if you need some tips for your visit, just let me know!
