Directory of Independent Booksellers in Ireland

Prim’s Bookshop, Kinsale, Co Cork
(Bibliotherapy)

My favourite occupation when visiting a new town is to seek out independent bookshops. I’m sure there are other readers and writers like me, who will also appreciate this list.  Hope so anyway.

Where would we writers and readers be without bookshops and their amazing owners?
