1. Charlie Byrne's Bookshop

"Favourite place in Galway, it's always a pleasure. Great to find hidden gems, you might not always find a specific book you're searching for but the staff will helpfully order them if needed. Or you'll get tempted by something else that will catch your eyes. More often than not both things will happen."

3. Kennys Bookshop & Art Galleries

"Where to start? The books offer something for everyone (someused and therefore cheaper as well). The first editions and historical works are a dream for any book-lover with a passion for a certain subject, the team as friendly, helpful, kind, and knowledgeable. Parking is available, and the shipping to Germany is an amazing bonus.Love it. Best bookshop ever. Thank you so much"

5. Dubray Books

"Great selection and books are displayed nicely. Staff very professional without being pushy...nice bookstore vibe. I was looking for a particular book and a young guy with a slight American accent and sporting a mustache (didn't get his name) was most accommodating and very knowledgeable about literature in general. Thanks Dubray!"

6. Eason

"The staff here are so friendly and helpful that they define what good customer service should be.The only downside is the limited book selection. There are a few gems here and there, but for the most part, it's bestsellers galore. This is an Eason problem, though and not limited to this specific branch."
