The warm weather looks set to continue as temperatures rise into the 20s.
After one of the wettest Mays on record, Met Eireann said June looks set to bring a more prolonged spell of good weather - but don't put away the brolly just yet.
Today will be one of the warmest days so far, with temperatures reaching 21C in some areas, but there may also be scattered showers in Munster and south Leinster.
Friday will be warm, with a risk of coastal showers in the south and southwest, and the weekend will be slightly more mixed.
Monday will be a little cool, but Tuesday and Wednesday will see temperatures soar again.
Meanwhile, a teenager was in a critical condition in hospital last night following a swimming accident in Athlone.
The youth was with friends in the River Shannon, north of the Shannon bridge, when he got into difficulty. Members of Athlone Sub Aqua and NLI Coosan Point were involved in the rescue.
