Met Éireann's national forecast, meanwhile, says that Saturday will be mainly dry with some areas seeing good sunshine in the morning, though it will be a cloudier day along southern coasts.
This is before rain develops from the west later as highest temperatures range from 13 to 17 degrees.
The rain will then spread eastwards on Saturday evening and night, turning heavy through Cork and Kerry.
This is before it clears on the morning of Easter Sunday, but there will be showers in the afternoon, some of which will be heavy.
Highest temperatures of 12 to 15 degrees are forecasted.
