Can you use Irish pounds in England?

My dad went to Northern Ireland a few days ago and when he came back he gave me 520 Irish pounds and said I could use them in England because I'm gonna go back to university in the UK tomorrow but those pounds look really different to the English ones. So will they really accept the Irish pounds?

  • They can be used but some stores do not expect them, although legally they should. It's best you deposit them into your bank account.
