Swords The Essential
The history of this bustling county town of Fingal goes back to the 6C, when Saint Columba founded a friary here. At the northern end of the town stands a castle, the summer residence of the Archbishops of Dublin. Important historical buildings include the craggy twin-towered Constable's Tower, fully restored.
