  • Hands down best bookshop I have ever been too and I love going to bookshops. They stick a great balance between new and old books. Nothing like picking up a book and finding an old bookmark or receipt showing how far it might have come. Or a note on the inside of a cover of an wanted Christmas present from a loved one.
  • Best bookshop in Galway. A lovely way to spend a few hours in the rainy west. Very helpful and friendly staff.
  • Love this bookshop.. a brilliant blend of old and new treasures to read. Rare books, unusual books, speciality books and monthly and annual publications. The kids love going there too..
  • Love this book store I could spend ages in there just looking at the books. Staff are always welcoming and friendly
  • Bibliophiles heaven! Over 100,000 books for sale. New and old and all genres.

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.
