Welcome to Charlie Byrne's

Charlie Byrne's Bookshop is Ireland’s best-loved independent bookshop in the heart of Galway City! Explore our labyrinthine maze of over 100,000 books: new, second-hand, bargain and antiquarian.

Due to the current Level 5 lockdown our doors are closed to the public. We are working behind the scenes filling website orders, postal orders and answering email and phone enquiries from our customers. We are also operating a 'Call and Collect' service for our local customers where books can be ordered and paid for over the phone and collected at the door. Alternatively we are posting books daily to any location nationally or worldwide. If you have any queries about books you have ordered or would like to place an order please get in touch with us on 091 561766 or email info@charliebyrne.ie.
