In this paper, we prove two new Weyl-type upper estimates for the eigenvalues of the Dirichlet Laplacian. As a consequence, we obtain the following lower bounds for its counting function. For $\lambda \ge \lambda _1$, one has \begin{equation} N(\lambda ) > \dfrac {2}{n+2} \ \dfrac {1}{H_n} \ \left (\lambda -\lambda _1\right )^{n/2} \ \lambda _1^{-n/2} \notag \end{equation} and \begin{equation} N(\lambda ) > \left (\dfrac {n+2}{n+4}\right )^{n/2} \ \dfrac {1}{H_n} \ \left (\lambda -(1+4/n) \ \lambda _1\right )^{n/2} \ \lambda _1^{-n/2}, \notag \end{equation} where \begin{equation} H_n=\dfrac {2 \ n}{j_{n/2-1,1}^2 J_{n/2}^2(j_{n/2-1,1})} \notag \end{equation} is a constant which depends on $n$, the dimension of the underlying space, and Bessel functions and their zeros.
