Government ministers and opposition TDs are among those who've criticised a protest held outside Tánaiste Leo Varadkar's house on Sunday.
Gardaí attended the protest outside Leo Varadkar and Matt Barret's home at around 1pm, after a small number of people with signs gathered.
A video of the demonstration has circulated on social media, where homophobic language can be heard and anti-vaccine signs can be seen.
Higher Education Minister Simon Harris was among those criticising the demonstration.
He described it as "sickening behaviour" that has no place in a democracy.
Sickening, repulsive, disgusting behaviour outside the home of @LeoVaradkar and Matt. It has no place in a democracy, must be condemned by all & called out for what it is. Efforts to dehumanise politicians contributes to this. Vile on so many levels

Minister Harris has faced similar protests in the past, when demonstrators gathered outside the then minister for health's home in 2019.
Housing Minister Darragh O'Brien, meanwhile, says he is “disgusted” by the protest.
He said: "I think those people, frankly, should be ashamed of themselves. There's no place for that sort of hatred in this country.
"We've seen this type of thing creep in in Ireland unfortunately over the last couple of years - extremist views."
Sinn Féin leader Mary Lou McDonald, meanwhile, called yesterday's protest "outrageous and shameful".
Dublin Social Democrats TD Gary Gannon described what happened as "nothing short of vile".
Speaking on Breakfast Briefing, Fine Gael TD Neale Richmond described it as a "vile act of intimidation".
He said: "I think everyone needs to condemn this.
"I've seen politicians from other parties, and they've been strong and unequivocal in their condemnation.
"Protest is perfectly fine... but bringing it a politician or anybody's home is simply unacceptable."
He said the focus should not be on the Garda response to the incident, but rather the people who "thought it was OK to protest against someone's family home".
