"There are several nice B and B's in the village of Swords, near the Dublin Airport. This is very convenient if you are flying out - as I did back to London. There is a cool castle in the village, and the B and Bs are nearby. Castlespring is run by a nice lady named Cepta Morton. She is very helpful with tourist info, and prepares a wonderful breakfast."
