Winds are due to be strongest along the coast and in exposed high areas.
Very rough sea conditions are also expected, prompting the Irish Coast Guard to advise the public to exercise caution.
“The forecasted unseasonable severe weather conditions will coincide with spring tides and rough to high seas, with the potential for wave overtopping and hazardous coastal conditions,” a statement from the Coast Guard said.
Anyone who sees someone in difficulty in the water is also reminded to call emergency services on 999/112 and to ask for the Coast Guard.
