The Coast Guard is appealing to the public to stay away from exposed beaches, cliffs and piers, harbour walls and promenades during high winds across the county over the next few days.
A yellow wind warning has been issued by Met Éireann for Cork from 8am, and also for Kerry, Clare, Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, and Sligo.
It will be unseasonably windy in Cork on Thursday with gusts of up to 90 km/h.
Winds will be strongest along the coast, as well as exposed and higher terrain and rough seas are also expected.
Thw warning will be lifted by this afternoon - but Cathal Nolan, from Ireland's Weather Channel, says care is needed this morning.
"We can expect to see gusts of wind especially in exposed areas especially in the counties in the aforementioned warning, with gusts of up to 70-90km/h.
"Given that we have full foliage on the trees and that some people might be engaged in camping or water based sports it is something to take note of, especially if you are in any of the aforementioned counties."
