The budget will take place on September 27th, the cabinet has approved.
The government has been pressured by the opposition to set up an emergency budget to address the cost of living crisis sparked by the war in Ukraine.
However, the Taoiseach resisted calls to introduce new measures to ease the financial burden of rising fuel, energy and food prices.
But the heads of government have now approved it two weeks earlier than expected.
The budget was originally scheduled to take place on Tuesday 11th October but it will now be announced by Treasury Secretary Paschal Donohoe on 27th September.
Mr Donohoe and Public Expenditure Secretary Michael McGrath will today outline their budget spending capacity.
