Swords is so close to Dublin International Airport that, if you have an early morning flight, you can beat the crowds on the golf course, enjoy elevenses at a stately home or even be at your hotel in time for a late breakfast. Just a couple of miles up the road from the airport, Swords couldn’t be easier to get to, whether you are taking a holiday or travelling here for business. Of course, at the end of your break there’s no need to worry about leaving half a day spare for your transfer either.

Airport taxis can be flagged down just outside the Arrivals, and will get you into Swords very quickly, but if you want to really get the full benefit of a holiday here then car hireis a good idea. That way you can roam the delightful Irish countryside at your leisure, and not be dependent on the schedules of public transport. By booking in advance with Expedia you can ensure a suitable vehicle will be waiting for you on arrival, with all the support you’ll need.
When to Fly to Swords
You can always rely on the unpredictability of the Irish weather. One moment the sun is shining, the next there are dark clouds forming overhead. Not ideal if you’re trying to organise a garden party of course, but the vagaries of the skies above do at least make for a reliable conversation starter. October to January traditionally see the Swords area receive the highest amount of rainfall, while June to August tend to be the warmest months of the year. Summertime also sees the fantastic Flavours of Fingal Agricultural and Horticultural Festival, held at the Newbridge House and Gardens, a grand day out.
