Old School House Pub And Restaurant
Phone Number (0)1 840-2846
The Old School House pub and restaurant is located on The Well Road Swords.This building was originally a Protestant
Boarding School for boys in the nineteenth century. There now stands a brand new building with the original front of the old
school house incorporated into the new building.
The old school house was transformed
into a pub by Dessie Lawlor in the 2000s and is now one of the finest pubs in Swords. It's also one of the best places to
eat in the town. There's a friendly atmosphere from the mostly regular clientele. Thursday nights is traditional Irish night
with the group ''Room For One More'' and more live music on Friday nights with Celtic Fusion playing a good mixture of
Irish folk and American pop songs.
The newly renovated Old School House
hold a "Cheap Ass Tuesdays Night" with €4.00 pints and cheap bottles alongside live entertainment. There's very little
car parking spaces in the car park, about 8 spaces in total. There's plenty of spaces at The Lord Mayors pub just up the road,
although you may have to pay a small fee during day time.
