Irish Water says this is due to increased demand and reducing water levels in the Thomastown Reservoir.
The current dry spell and increased seasonal demand are contributing to the reduced available supply of treated drinking water.
Customers in the Loughshinny and Skerries Road, Rush areas are also being urged to conserve water.
In order to avoid widespread outages the authority says it is necessary to carry out restrictions on the water supply in the coming days.
Barnageeragh Cove Residents' Group spokesperson Anne Abell says the situation is having a negative effect on locals.
''It's having a severe impact,'' she said.
''Not having access to fresh water is quite difficult as you can imagine,'' she said.''
