Only if you don't let it cool down before putting it in your bag. ;-0

No problems (back in the days even took a full sized one on an extended holiday, what a wally) but really travel irons on the whole dont really do much of a job (and so say Which?). Is it worth using up precious space

Unlike many other airlines,Ryanair do not have an electrical socket in the armrest of their aircraft.


Incidentally,other than weight and dimensions,Ryanair do not control what is in your luggage-that is down to airport Security regulations

Reminds me of the old (sexist in a retro ironic way) joke.

Pilot comes on the intercom and says "sorry folks but in 5 minutes we will crash and everyone will die so spend the next 5 minutes doing whatever you fancy."

Two strangers next to each other, man and woman, the man says "what can we do?"

The woman says "ive never known love, make me feel like a woman"

The man rips off his shirt, exposing his six pack. His muscles ripple.

He hands the shirt to the woman and says "iron that".

Ironing? What's that?

Anything that's worn for more than about 10 minutes looks crumpled anyway, so why bother on holiday?

If there anything a bit wrinkly you're really bothered about, shove it on a hanger in a steamy bathroom for an hour and then give it a good shake.. Works with husbands too!

Have a great, if slightly creased, but stress-free trip!
