The number of overseas visitors arriving in Ireland went up by almost 300% last month compared to the previous month.
The figures are still significantly down on last year's passenger numbers.
These new CSO figures show 227 thousand people arrived here from abroad in July - up from 57 thousand in June.
97 thousand passengers came here from Britain, 23 thousand from Spain, and 13 thousand from France.
There were also 8 thousand arrivals from the US, one of the world's biggest coronavirus hotspots.
The figures are still well down on the 2.2 million people who came into the country in July 2019.
Today's data also show 275 thousand people left Ireland last month - when the government published a green list of countries for safe travel.
But the most popular destinations were places not on the list - 82 thousand people went to Britain, 38 thousand to Spain and 23 thousand to Poland.
