If your Grandmother is British (or Irish) the answer is no. Passports are not required by citizens of either country when travelling between the two. There is a special channel at all airports in Ireland and the UK for this traffic, so passports are never sought. A valid up to date photo driving licence is fine.

I should of course have mentioned that you should also verify with the airline that a driving licence is acceptable to them at check-in - usually it is.
