    We stopped here on our way to our B & B. Nice old castle that is in the center of Swords. Restoration is being done and best of all, there is no charge to visit.  more »

    Great to see the ongoing restoration of the castle. More importantly it is fantastic to see the use being made of it by Fingal county council. Recently attended an open air showing of the movie "In America". Absolutely brilliant.

    It's a good tour but a bit expensive. You learn a lot of about history and with much languages, if you are studying English you could understand all the tour.

    Ancient castle. Recently restored. It's now possible to visit some rooms. Christmas markets have been organised in December, along with other events. Worth a visit.

    When I came, there was nobody inside! I had the chance to enter the castle without much hassle, and took some pictures and videos. The castle wall at the time was not open,and there were some recovery works in progress. The staff there was friendly and helpful.
