No, because the UK and Ireland, despite being EU members, aren't signed-up to the Schengen Agreement.

Diane, no, this only applies to countries in the Schengen group, which does not include UK.

Re: Turkey seeks visa-free travel in Europe

From Wikipedia:
" The borderless zone created by the Schengen Agreements, the Schengen Area, currently consists of 25 European countries. Ireland and the United Kingdom opted out of Schengen's border control arrangements, while participating in certain provisions relating to judicial and police cooperation."

Schengen definitely doesn't cover UK and Ireland. There are even restrictions on travel between the UK and Ireland. I checked into this last year when one of my Turkish neighbours was on an extended trip to visit her family in England. She would have had to get a separate visitor's visa for Ireland prior to leaving Turkey.
