It's quite simple. One is a Scottish accent and one is an Irish accent.

It is a slight mix between a cockney accent, a southern Scottish accent, and an Irish accent attributed because of the Liverpudlian ports. They adopted different accents, with a different accent on their own.

ENGLISH-with a bit of an Irish/Scottish accent.

no there is not. although there is an Irish coven Irish is different from SCOTTISH :| :|

First of all, there are many Scottish accents that are very different to each other and there are also many Irish accents that are very different to each other. It would impossible and only a matter of opinion at to which of these many accents is the coolest, so there is no answer to the question.

Answer - No they do not speak with a scottish accent, yes us Scottish & Irish have similar words but they speak with a different accent to those in the south, just like thos in Edinburgh have a different accent to us in Glasgow, or those in London have a different Accent to those in Yorkshire. Northen Ireland is near to Scotland so they accent will be similar, just think about those from Newcastle sound a mixture of Scottish & English, that's because Newcastle is near Scotland.iv lived in belfast for 3 yrs an have a belfast accent,im scottish though,it is so easy to pick up Irish accent,any Irish accent*Scottish Accents in Northern IrelandBecause the English encouraged Scots to settle there, hence the term "Scotch-Irish".It is NOT "Scotch-Irish", the correct term is "Ulster-Scots". And they were not "encouraged" per say, but rather forced from their land, it was actually the Protestant English that were encouraged to settle here. Secondly, as you may have noticed.... we don't speak with a Scottish accent!While many Scots did settle in the north of Ireland (and there are similarities between the two as compared with the Irish of the free state/Republic) Ulster men and women speak very differently than the Scots.Please don't compare Sean Connery with a bad version of the North such as Brad Pitt's in "A Devil's Own"!i am from northern Ireland there for my accent is northern Irish and people in the south have a southern accent, either way everyone in the whole of Ireland north and south have an Irish accent! the only people who speak with a scottish accent r the scottish!Depends on what you mean by 'Northern-Irish'. I am originally from Belfast but often I have difficulty in distinguishing a Donegal accent from my own (Donegal is the northernmost county in the Republic of Ireland). Defining the 'Northern-Irish' as the whole northern part of the island, at least in terms of accent, is probably more accurate than confining it to the six counties of Northern Ireland. Having said that, as someone who has lived away from Ireland for over a decade, I have noticed that in several counties south of the 9 counties of Ulster, such as Louth, one can hear northern vowel sounds (.e.g. "eight" prounced 'ee-ut', or "you" prounced 'yoo', or "now" prounced 'now-eeh'. Such a phenomena is not unique to Ireland. People in the Danish island of Bornholm speak Danish in a Swedish accent, and Swedes who live in the southern part of Sweden 'Skona', speak Swedish in a Danish accent.Northen Irish people speak with a Nothern Irish accent. I can appreciate that for outsiders they may sound similar but if your from N.I or Scotland, you will realise that they are distinctely different.Within in Northern Ireland there are a variety of discernable accents. Some Northern Ireland people living in North Antrim and East Down have broad accents which are more similar to the Scots than to those from Derry and Armagh.Northern Irish accents and those of some of the West of Scotland have similarities in vowels and in intonation - the way the accent stresses important words and syllables. There are differences between the accents but to an untrained or a non-local ear it can be really hard to distinguish between them. Actors doing a West of Scotland accent or a Northern Irish one can easily slip from one to the other, sometimes within 2 sentences! It should also be noted that there is not one generic Northern Irish or Scottish accent. There can be a huge variety with subtle differences from one village to the next.I am Southern but having heard Scottish accents and Northern accents I can distinguish between them. The Northern accent (also found in Co.Donegal and Co.Monaghan in the Republic of Ireland) is more drawling, and slower. The Scottish accent is faster and not as drawling.I can say that the Northern Irish do not speak with a Scottish Accent. However there are many different dialects and versions of the accent through the 9 counties. I am from a town called Larne which is only 25 miles away from Scotland, therefore I speak with a very "broad" northern Irish accent, and have been told many times that I am scottish. I suggest checking out two radio stations: BBC Ulster and BBC Scotland ( to hear the difference!They don't. You just can't tell the difference. Accents all over the world change about every 30-40 miles or so. My wife and I were in Chicago a couple of years ago talking to someone from San Francisco and we couldn't tell the difference between Chicago or Frisco accents but I'm sure there is. However, I do know a New York accent when I hear one - 'Hey goil, go to woik'.I'm from the east of Scotland, and my accent is very different from that, spoken in the west of Scotland. I always thought the west of Scotland spoke with a similar accent to the northern Irish due to the large influx of Irish workers that have settled there ? It all depends on how you look at it,I suppose?Lets just put it to bed lads... People from Northern Ireland speak prodominatly with a Northern Irish accent. This may sound closer to a Scottish accent than a full blown Irish accent does. It is not a Scottish accent. I could tell the difference after two words! In the same way I could tell the difference between a Dublin/Cork/Limerick accent or a Glasgow/Edinburgh/Highland accent. Maybe I have the advantage of a Scotsman living in Ireland. But all these accents are different!!!!They Dont have a scottish accent.......simple asNorthern Irish people do NOT have a Scottish accent. Or vice-versa. People from Northern Ireland have a Northern Ireland accent. People from Scotland have a Scottish accent. However a Glasgow-Scottish accent is different from an Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Inverness or Dundee accent. Just as New York is different from Chicago, New Orleons or San Francisco. There is no such thing as an American accent.

There is actually no such thing as a British accent. There is an English accent, a Scottish accent, an Irish accent, or a Welsh accent.  These are generally spoken within their own countries (English in England, Scottish in Scotland, etc.). However, people all over the world may have a breed of a British accent because either they are immigrants themselves or they picked it up from their family. 

No they are two different places on different islands

Everyone has a different accent in different countries. England is like America the different places you go you get different accents there not all the same. For instance an individual can have a Essex accent which is different to the London accent. Also, other accents are Lester accent or a Manchester accent a Nottingham accent a Scottish a Welsh accent and a Hull accent.
