Really nice gastro pub just off swords main street. The perfect place if you want to catch up with friends and have a couple of drinks and some food. They have a very good selection of beers, ales, and ciders. Tasty food and reasonably priced.

Don't be looking for haut cuisine but OK pub grub and best of all, a range of real ales to go with. Not exactly busy, probably not best atmosphere but easy with kids in the daytime.
