By contrast, along the south and westerly coasts temperatures struggled to get into single figures with a high of just 11.8 degrees in Roches Point in Cork.
The bad news is that there will be a return to the distinctly cool temperatures of recent weeks.
Rain spreading from the west overnight will reach the east coast by Tuesday morning. There is a possibility of a 16 degrees on Tuesday afternoon, but that will be as good as it gets.
It will be rainy and windy in most places with heavy rain forecast for Friday. The weekend is also looking cool and changeable.
