The incident happened on the Cavan Road about a mile from Bailieborough at 11.30am on Sunday, during the Cavan Stages Rally.
A car lost control and crashed through a fence outside a house where spectators were standing.
Gardai said the woman - who is believed to be in her late 20s - and the man were both confirmed dead at the scene.
A further seven people were taken to Cavan General Hospital for treatment.
Some of them are in a serious condition.
Gardai Superintendent Gerry O'Brien, who is at the scene, spoke to UTV. He explained how the car lost control as it came over the crest of a hill.
"One of the rally cars lost control coming over a hill and ran into some spectators," he said.
"As a result of that there are seven spectators currently in hospital and unfortunately two of the spectators died at the scene.
"Basically the car skidded left and right and then into the group of people and two are deceased, a woman from Cork and a man from Galway.
"We are now launching a full investigation into how the accident happened."
Emergency services remained at the scene on Sunday. The rally was suspended and roads remained closed.
The area is being examined by a forensic collision investigator.
