It's free to park in The Estuary Pub Car park if you are customer using the pub
to eat or drink. Remember to ask the bar staff for a display card to place on the dashboard of your car. If you do decide
to park in the car park and you are not using the pub you may get clamped. The release fee for the clamp is €120. There
are signs warning about clamping in the car park. The management had little choice in implementing this action as drivers
who were working nearby and those using the café and betting office were clogging up the few spaces available which left no
room for the customers of the pub.

There's a loading bay outside Audrey's shop near The Carnegie Court Hotel. It's hours of operation are 8am - 6pm
Monday - Saturday. Another loading bay is located close to the 44 hotel which also operates 8am - 6pm Mon. to Sat.
The loading bay outside Centra on the main street operates from 7am - 10am Mon. to Sat. Another ''Shared'' loading bay is
on the left facing Swords Castle. This bay is shared with Dublin Bus as a bus stop / loading area. A loading area is strictly
for those who are loading or unloading goods using commercial vehicles. If you use these spaces and are not seen to be loading,
even if it's a commercial vehicle you may get a ticket.
Finally - A Tip
It's an offence to park in a disabled bay anywhere in Ireland. Be it a street,
shopping centre, hotel even if it's on private property. The Garda have the right to issue a ticket to anybody parking in
these disabled areas who don't display the disable card on the window / dashboard. People assume because it's a shopping centre
and they are only popping in for a few minutes that its alright. Wrong.
