British Airways do too.

Ryanair most definately do not, not sure about Easyjet.

"not sure about Easyjet." - They do not accept a driving licence as valid photographic ID, with the exception of UK domestic flights.

I think you'll find you need a pilots licence. Driving licence is clearly insufficient even if it includes HGV.

Dublin will be classed as an international flight whilst Belfast is classed as a UK domestic flight - you could fly to Belfast with a photo driving licence as acceptable ID with Easyjet but not Dublin.

"TomC but UK and Ireland are a common travel area" - I understand that but the OP was asking about flights using driving licence as valid ID and I was merely pointing out that EJ will only accept a driving licence as valid ID on UK domestic flights.

Easyjet don't even fly to the ROI so the point is mute.

Aer Lingus will accept a driving licence as you know. As said BA also as long as you were born in either country.

Between the two of these carriers you have plenty of choice and apart from Ryanair those are the only carriers that fly to the UK from Dublin.
