The Behaviour and Attitudes Poll in the Sunday Times gives them 28% support - down two points.
Fine Gael are also down two points to 26%.
The poll shows a rise in the popularity of the left wing parties. Sinn Fein are up two to 19%, while Labour (up two to 5%), AAA-People Before Profit, the Greens, Social Democrats and Renua all make small gains.
There is no change for the Independent Alliance on 5%.
Fianna Fáil's Micheál Martin is the most popular leader with 50% satisfaction, Taoiseach Enda Kenny is on 33%, up one point. Labour leader Brendan Howlin is on 39%.
While Sinn Féin are up in terms of party support, Gerry Adams' satisfaction rating dropped by six points to 32%.
The poll was taken during extensive coverage of the 1983 IRA shooting of Brian Stack, on which Gerry Adams made a Dáil statement.
