Swords Castle Conservation Plan

Swords Castle was built as the residence for the Archbishops of Dublin in the thirteenth century. It is the best surviving medieval episcopal manor in Ireland, representing at least 500 years of development, and is a National Monument. A Swords Castle Conservation Plan has been published to address a range of concerns regarding the preservation and protection of the castle, in order to enable the castle to be reinvigorated and presented to the public so that its significance becomes more widely recognised.  The Conservation Plan was published on 9th September 2014.
