It really was beginning to feel a lot like Christmas today as snow and sleet fell around the country.
And the cold weather looks set to continue tonight as temperatures are expected to fall to zero degrees.
"We saw some snow and sleet this morning. What brought that along was some intense rain that turned progressively to sleet and snow due to the cold weather," Aoife Murray of Met Éireann told Independent.ie.
"Most of these showers are now rain and as the day gets cooler, there will be more snow and sleet possible for later tonight, but mostly on high ground, but it could fall to lower ground, mostly in the west and north of the country."
People all across the country have been sharing their snow pictures on social media this morning, with some of you sending them to Independent.ie.
Meanwhile, elsewhere in Ireland, today has been a miserable one with heavy showers all across the country.
Met Éireann issued a status yellow rain warning for three counties today - Donegal, Mayo and Sligo.
Rainfall of up to 35mm is expected and the warning is in place until 9pm tonight.
For the rest of the country, the cold and rainy weather will continue throughout the rest of the day.
There is also a chance of thunder according to the national weather forecaster.
Temperatures of between 6 and 9 degrees are expected.
AA Roadwatch have warned motorists to reduce their speed and "leave a safe braking distance from the vehicle in front of you".
