After that weekend, we are due some sunshine.
According to Met Éireann, the worst of this week's weather should be behind us by the end of Tuesday. The rest of the week is set to be dry and relatively warm.
However, you will have to keep the rain jacket at the ready for one more day as Tuesday is going to be wet and windy, with the South and East getting the worst of it.
The rain will gradually clear in the early hours of Wednesday, with Atlantic coastal counties being mostly bright an dry. Temperatures will reach highs of 19C on both days.
Thursday and Friday will be more of the same, with sparse showers, mostly in the Leinster area.
Temperatures will range between 15-20c in the latter half of the week.
A spokesperson for Met Éireann said: “Tomorrow is going to be a wet damp and misty day in the east, but fortunately there isn’t going to be too much rain after that. There will be a lot of dry weather for the rest of the week, with only a few showers in the South and East. Unusually, the West will remain relatively dry.
“It’s a nice end to the summer, as these last few days we have definitely felt the season turning.”
