Met Éireann's meteorologist Siobhán Ryan told our friends at JOE that "good sunshine" will be here to stay right out until the end of the week and even into the early days of next week.

She said: "The weather looks nice and settled out to the end of the weekend. [It will be] dry, practically, country-wide. The winds look light."

Despite this, Ryan did add that different parts of the country will see different temperatures.

"The mildest temperatures are definitely going to be in the west with Connacht probably getting up to 16, 17, 18 degrees there some of the days," she explained.

"But for Dublin, temperatures are more capped at around 12 or 13 degrees most of the days ahead.

"If you're living in the East, just be prepared for temperatures not to be all that mild. Really the mildest conditions are for Atlantic coasts or counties."

However, the meteorologist said that even where it's cooler, it will still be dry and sunny and feel "fairly pleasant".

She did advise though that people in these cooler areas should "wrap up a little bit" as opposed to breaking out the shorts and sandals just yet.
