Best bookshop in town. Very friendly and helpful young staffs. The older staff can be grumpy at times( I usually avoid them). But the boys and Michaela are very helpful and accommodating. Best value books. Big selection for kids.
Amazing. One of the best bookshops I have ever seen anywhere in Europe. I spend hours in there. Great selection of old, antique and modern books. Brilliant knowledgeable staff. An absolute gem in Galway.
