Quaint little bookshop run by the friendly Paddy. Ok it isn't Amazon but you didn't expect that. You will get the popular books of the moment there plus there is a second hand area.

Very handy little local bookshop. Very obliging, if he hasn't got what you need he always offers to order in and always texts when your order arrives. Love having a bookshop in the town.

This has to be the smallest bookshop in Ireland with the best selection of books! If Paddy doesn't have it in he'll do his upmost to find it for you!

For a small place it has everything or if not you will have within the next day or two. Paddy has a word for everybody and that means a lot.
