Northern Ireland. Not ROI.

@fsniper: I stand corrected, it is Northern Ireland indeed.

@dsumin: Saying Ireland was still correct. I just checked it for a future visit and realized I need a visa to go there. Well I have the visa , but still.. It's a shame to need a visa to visit Ireland while living in Ireland :)

@fsniper: yes, I was so very surprised when learned that Ireland residents do need a visa to enter Northern Ireland.

What was even more confusing for me, that even if you hold EU residence permit, you still need a visa to visit Ireland.

@dsumin: Also even if you have a valid Schengen visa you can enter neither ROI, nor Northern Ireland.

However, if you have UK visa you can visit both NI and ROI.

@drauk: This depends on type of your visa. There is a visa waiver program. According to this program if you have a Short Term Stay Visa for the UK, you can visit ROI for the duration of the visa if you enter through UK.

@fsniper: that's exactly what I had to do -- fly in through London :/
