Well kept round tower in Swords
Dec 2018
Swords round tower is in great condition and looks impressive but I think it's such a pity that we can't climb it to see the magnificent views. I think it makes a wonderful addition to the heritage of the area

Very cool!

The Swords Round Tower has stood since the 6th century and it looks very old. We were disappointed that we couldn't climb the Round Tower, but that is not possible. The view of the town must be amazing. It's still worth the walk to see.

If you are staying in Swords and have some time it is worth taking a little time to go look at these ancient structures at the church. It will not take very long but interesting to tak a closer look.

Nice Round Tower
May 2018 • Couples
We visited Swords Round Tower and St. Columba Church, they are on the same grounds, along with a clock tower. Nice spot to visit if you are staying in Swords. We stayed here our last night, to be close to the airport, for the morning.

Still standing

The tower is in need to restoration. However it’s testament to the workmanship that went into building the tower that it is still standing. It is in the ground of St Columbas Church.

Surprising find on our visit to Swords
May 2016 • Couples
This was pleasant find on our drive. We couldn't see any place to park, so we did a bit of a walk to get to this site from the main part of town. I'd say it's maybe a 5 minute walk from Swords Castle. It was really interesting to see the Round Tower and to pay our respects to the headstones. It is on the grounds of St. Columba's Church, so please be mindful of that if you visit.
