  • More than a bookshop, it's a social centre, an event, an essential part of the Galway experience. And it sells books too! A must for readers of all ages. I go there just for the atmosphere, but always come away with an armful of new reading. They even have a loyalty card these days.
  • What a wonderful place. I could spend here days just browsing through thousands of new and old books. There is not much you cannot find here.
  • Brilliant browsing among books of every genre. Don't know what you like? You'll find the answer here!
  • A gem of a place! This bookstore has a huge selection of new and second hand books, a great resource if you are trying to track down a particular title, the staff are extremely knowledgeable and happy to help. A bookshop I always stop into when I'm in Galway city.
  • if you like books, don't miss this place. rooms and rooms of books. the colours. the smell. you'll love it.

Where to stay in Galway

Stay at the center of Ireland's "Most Irish City," Galway City, by booking a hotel or hostel near Eyre Square, from which all city sights are walkable. If you prefer accommodation with more character, stay at a charming guesthouse or bed and breakfast just outside of the center, or look for lodging in the city's Latin Quarter, a bohemian neighborhood lined with cafes, galleries, and pubs. If you want to explore Galway County, book accommodations in the city, since it's a tourism and transportation hub on the West Coast. If you prefer the quiet countryside, seek out small, family-owned guesthouses on the Aran Islands or a cottage on the Connemara Peninsula.
