The Ireland Central Statistics Office reported this morning that overseas arrivals to Ireland in June 2020 were down 97.1% year-on-year, and year-to-date arrivals were down 65.9%.

Departures were also down very significantly:

70% of the 57,100 arrivals 32,300 came by cross-channel routes, 18,300 by continental route, 3800 by transatlantic routes and 2700 by other overseas routes.

Top countries of origin were:

  1. UK 32,300
  2. Netherlands 4400
  3. Germany 3900

Also today, state airport company DAA told legislators that persons from countries not on Ireland's "Green List" should prove they have tested negative for COVID-19 before coming.

Some of Ireland's major tourism source countries - including the UK and the US - aren't on the Green List.

Irish tourism revenues are forecast to be down by €7B in 2020.
