  • I have to admit that this book store is probably my favorite in Galway. The choice available is amazing from the outside of the store, which is covered is book shelves to the inside which is pretty big. If you love books, I recommend this place.

  • Great bookshop mix of new and second hand books. Great staff, so helpful and friendly. Great atmosphere and amazing how you can get lost in their world for ages looking for the right books! Love this place!

  • The best bookshop in the west of Ireland. It's old fashioned yet still stocked with a lot of new titles and it's quirky to boot.There is something for everyone here.

  • Massive selection of books, mostly secondhand, friendly and helpful staff. You can easily spend a whole afternoon here. Open on Sundays too.

  • Rightly winners of 'The best independent bookshop in Ireland', just the perfect mix of second hand books and new. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable
