The 180 pilots, who are members of the Irish Airline Pilots Association, were due to walk off the job following a row over pay and working conditions.
Ryanair says all flights due to depart from Irish airports tomorrow will operate as scheduled.
The airline has welcomed the High Court's ruling, and says it will come as a huge relief to thousands of Irish passengers.
Ryanair is calling on Forsa, and the 180 Irish based pilots it represents, to return to mediation talks in order to resolve the dispute over pay and working conditions.

Meanwhile, Ryanair's lost a High Court challenge in London to block strikes by its UK pilots in a row over pay.
But the firm insists it'll run a full schedule from British airports tomorrow and on Friday.
