TDs will see their salary rise to over €100,000 in the next few months.
It's part of a wider public service pay restoration agreement.
As it stands, TD's are paid a basic salary of over €98,000 a year.
However, that's likely to increase by the first of July.
Meanwhile, senators pay is also set to increase to more than €70,000 a year.
The money is being awarded to higher public service sectors as wages are being restored to levels last reached in 2008.
Some healthcare workers at St Vincent's University Hospital in Dublin have slammed the pay increase.
One workers said she was infuriated at the news.
"We're here trying to get through everyday on our money, it's ridiculous and so infuriating."
Another appealed to TDs not to take the money.
"If any of these TDs take this, they should stop and have a look at where the should be going - and not in their pockets."
Sinn Fein TD Eoin O Broin is one of those deputies who will not be accepting the increase
He described it as a "bad news story for politics".
"Unfair TDs Are Being Singled Out"
Former political advisor and public affairs consultant, Gerard Howlin, says it's wrong that members of the Dáil are being singled out.
He says while it can look like TDs are "skipping the queue" but he says they're not.
"They're a very small part of a much bigger pay pout"
"What is now characterised as a pay increase for TDs is in fact a public service wide pay restoration."
A new public sector pay deal is expected to be ratified by unions tomorrow which could lead to another pay rise for deputies in October next year
