The sudden burst of sun has us dreaming of ice-cream, sand and sea.
We may not be able to go surfing on white sandy beaches with palm trees, but those sweet Vitamin D rays have us thinking of how amazing Irish beaches are in their own right.
Before the sun disappears from us again (*sobs uncontrollably), the Lovin.ie team has been discussing our favourite beaches across the country.
We thought we would share them with you, for those last-minute weekend sunshine plans.
Curracloe Beach, Wexford
"I spent my childhood running around the dunes of this beach, and the water is still as clear as I remember. It's as perfect for families as it is for a weekend away with mates, and Nellies chipper down the road does the best chips on earth.
Make it a priority to go horse-riding by the waves there at least once! Just incredible."
Kate Demolder, Journalist
Silver Strand, Galway
"This beach can be found just outside of Galway City and is totally gorge. Silver sands for as far as the eye can see. Huge hot spot for windsurfing and kitesurfing with people coming from all over just to have a go."
Alana Laverty, Journalist
"The beauty of Kerry is no secret to anyone who has been there. This beach right at the southwestern tip of the country may be in the same county as Killarney but it's a million miles away in terms of hustle and bustle.
Next time you're lucky enough to find yourself in this part of the world be sure to check out Derrynane and the nearby village of Caherdaniel. Perfect for a summer staycation."
James Fenton, Journalist
Keem Beach, Achill
"There is no greater place to be than Keem beach when the sun shines. With clear water and clean sand, this is the ideal beach for our (rare) sunny days."

Marble Hill, Dunfanaghy, Donegal
"Aside from the glorious beach, the best part is The Shack, where you can get the best coffee in Donegal. The owner is a coffee guru, so you're guaranteed a good cup."
Caoimhe Sweeney, Account Executive
Ballyhealy Beach, Wexford
"A childhood favourite of mine that I still return to when I can. It may have gotten a bit stonier in recent years, but when the tide is out it's gorgeous. I'll also give you a tenner if you can climb and jump off the Big Rock".
