Cock Tavern
December 2019 May 27, 2020
This month’s pub is the Cock Tavern in Swords, County Dublin. This Heritage Pub has a rich history and got its start as a Coaching Inn in the 18th Century. Coaching Inns were popular prior to the development of railways and served as a resting spot where travelers with horse-drawn coaches could rest, eat, and care for their horses. The Cock Tavern was a very important Coaching Inn, as the surrounding areas were densely wooded and harbored some of Ireland’s most notorious highwaymen.

Today, the Cock Tavern is still a wonderful place to relax and recharge. The old slated floors, wide pine beams, and brick and granite walls create a natural character and ambiance that truly highlights the pub's old-world charm and history. The menu has expanded a bit since the 18th century and you can now enjoy dishes including beef and Guinness casserole, burgers, and the famous Cock Tavern Chicken Wings. Wash it all down with a pint or two and you’ll be sure to avoid any unsavory highwaymen that might be lurking in the woods.
