Met Éireann is warning we can expect a stretch of sub-zero temperatures for the next five days.
Bitterly cold temperatures are expected this weekend with sub-zero overnight temperatures.
However, forecasters say we are unlikely to see the extreme snowy or icy conditions which ground the country to a halt last month.
The cold snap is being attributed to a high pressure system moving in sending temperatures to between -3C and -6C in most areas.
The midlands and west will see the lowest temperatures.
Motorists are being urged to take care on the roads where frost could make conditions particularly dangerous.
