Datasets are available at: http://www.nisra.gov.uk/geography/postcode.htm Central Postcode Directory (November 2015) http://ons.maps.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=d7fe815217504f4eac0cb07170747094 UK ONS Postcode Directory (November 2016) However, there are no address references. The data is particularly difficult to find. It exists in different places, with different levels of updated-ness, and with different access arrangements. Percularity with the Northern Ireland data - though it is included alongside the Great Britain postcodes (UK Government Licence), it carries a separate licence https://www.ons.gov.uk/methodology/geography/licences Furthermore, the data is both available free of charge, but you can also also be charged £260+VAT by the government department if you are not aware of this https://mapshop.nidirect.gov.uk/Catalogue/Digital-products/Address-data-and-gazetteers/Central-Postcode-Directory/197a466c-60ce-4373-813a-8cccc6480f74.
