We are delighted to hear that you are planning a family trip to Dublin! 😊
For UK citizens, passports are not required and you can use official photo identification to enter the Republic of Ireland. There are no passport controls in operation for Irish and UK citizens travelling between the two countries. However, you must show identification to board a plane or a ferry, and some airlines and sea carriers only accept a passport as valid identification. I recommend for you to check what form of ID is required with your individual airline, ferry company or travel agent before travelling.Visit our website
