The rain and cold temperatures will be pushed aside for bright and sunny spells on Bank Holiday Monday.
Met Eireann has some good news for those looking forward to hitting the beer gardens on the last day of the Bank Holiday weekend.
After the recent bout of Arctic weather, Ireland looks set for some improved temperatures and the prospect of a largely sunny Monday. Although spells of showers are expected by mid-afternoon.
Evelyn Cusack of Met Eireann said, "Sunday will be a pleasant evening. We'll see mild temperatures overnight and a spell of showers which will clear eastward by the morning."
Monday is expected to get off to a fresh start and temperatures are expected to reach the tolerable low-teens with gusty, westerly winds.
Showers are forecast for the afternoon, some heavy, but they will be broken up by spells of sunshine throughout the day.
Barbecue enthusiasts could still venture out during dry spells on Monday but temperatures aren't expected to rise above 12 degrees.
