The Irish Government is advising citizens whose presence in China is "not essential" to leave the country.
The Department of Foreign Affairs also says anyone with underlying medical conditions shouldn't travel there.
It comes after the National Public Health Emergency Team met this afternoon, amid the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.
It says there are still no confirmed cases here - but that Ireland is well positioned to respond.
Meanwhile, the first meeting of the Expert Advisory Group will take place tomorrow.
World Health Organization (WHO) officials say there have been 27 cases of person-to-person coronavirus spread in nine countries outside China.
The WHO also says 22 nations have officially reported trade or travel-related measures linked to the virus.
Officials add that the measures should be short in duration, proportionate and considered regularly.
The number of deaths from the coronavirus outbreak in China has risen to 425, with the total number of cases now standing at 20,438, Chinese officials said.
