The two strikes - combined with possible action by over 4,000 employees at London's Heathrow Airport - could add up to chaos for anyone traveling to, from, or through the United Kingdom in the coming weeks.
Ryanair said the strike action had the support of less than 30% of its pilots as only half were members of BALPA.
Ryanair pilots employed by agencies were not balloted.
Per the union, there will be a two-day strike from August 22, and a second strike from the early hours of September 2 until before midnight on September 4.
BALPA accused Ryanair of "decades" of "refusing to deal with unions", which resulted in "a management that apparently doesn't understand how to work with unions" and "a company that doesn't have a number of standard agreements that any union would reasonably expect in any workplace", BALPA said in a Wednesday press release.
Ryanair'sIrish pilots have voted in favour of industrial action in a row over pay. The union said its grievance covers issues "including pensions; loss of license insurance; maternity benefits; allowances; and a fair, transparent, and consistent pay structure".
RTÉ reported that the union will inform managers of strike plans early next week unless the airline agreed to union pay proposals by Monday.
94% of 180 directly-employed Ryanair pilots based here, who are members of Ialpa, were eligible to vote in the ballot.
Members of Ryanair's Portuguese cabin crew trade union are also set to go on strike for five days from August 21st in a dispute over leave. "No pilot wants to spoil the public's travel plans but at the moment it seems we have no choice".
Less than 50 percent of Ryanair's United Kingdom pilots were BALPA members, with "just 57 percent" voting in favour of industrial action.
The Irish union said there was "frustration and disappointment" among pilots over a lack of progress in ongoing pay talks with the company but did not say when strike action might take place.
"This is less than 30% of Ryanair's United Kingdom pilots", the spokesperson said.
"This Forsa threat of industrial action has no mandate from Ryanair pilots, and is ill-timed just 10 weeks before a hard Brexit, while Ryanair is in the process of letting excess pilots go due to the Boeing Max delivery delays".
It claims its pilots earn 20% more than those in comparable 737 airlines like Norwegian.
