However, 6,152 jobs were lost, leaving a net figure of 6,570 new jobs last year.
That is the lowest level of job losses at IDA-client companies in a decade and the highest net job creation figure in ten years.
The biggest investments came from companies like Apple, PayPal and Northern Trust.
More than 152,000 people are now employed by IDA-client companies - the highest number since before the financial crisis in 2008.
