After his state visit to the UK Donald Trump will make his first visit to Ireland as US President today.
He'll arrive at Shannon Airport later where he'll meet Taoiseach Leo Varadkar.
The Taoiseach is expected to bring up Brexit, Northern Ireland and trade along with access to the E3 visa for Irish citizens.
He'll also be under pressure to discuss climate change after recent election results and comments from President Michael D Higgins criticising the USA's record when it comes to the environment.
Mr Trump will spend the night at his hotel in Doonbeg after meeting Leo Varadkar before a day trip to France on Thursday for D-Day commemorations.
He'll then play a round of golf in Doonbeg on Friday to round out the Irish visit.
1,400 garda members are on patrol in Co Clare this week backed up by specialist units and a navy ship off the coast.
The coastal community of Doonbeg are eagerly awaiting the arrival of US President with local businesses decorating the town in his honour.
Protests will take place over the next few days to oppose Donald Trump's visit.
A peace camp will be set up outside Shannon Airport today while there will be a separate protest in Dublin tomorrow, which will be attended by Junior Minister Finian McGrath.
Other protests are also planned for Galway, Cork and Sligo and will be attended by a number of civil society groups and political parties.

Mr Trump has described protests that were held in the UK against his visit as 'organised flops'.
I kept hearing that there would be “massive” rallies against me in the UK, but it was quite the opposite. The big crowds, which the Corrupt Media hates to show, were those that gathered in support of the USA and me. They were big & enthusiastic as opposed to the organized flops!
