The Old Boro

Designed by Francis Johnston of GPO fame, the Old Boro School first opened its doors in 1809 and, as with the school in any small town, it played a big part in the life of Swords.


It closed as a school in 2000 and has been extensively renovated and refurbished and the Smith Group have managed to maintain the traditional feel of the building whilst introducing a contemporary aspect to it.


Swords is a vibrant and busy town, with many pubs and bars, and the Old Boro is a welcome addition to the social options here.

Open: Mon-Thur, 10.30-11.30pm, Fri & Sat 10.30am-12:30am, Sun, 12.30-11pm abbreviations

Sad as Dubliners were to see the 2012 closure of one of the city’s most iconic businesses, the Dublin Woollen Mills (where James Joyce, no less, once worked), it is cheering to see Elaine Murphy and the team from the equally iconic Winding Stair next door serving u ...
