There are so many, many book shops in Dublin, often more than one on the same street.
If you are staying on the north side, one of the shop I’ve listed, will probably be close by…
I made a shorter list from the south side, more special ones. If you’re after a good experience, visit The Winding Stair, on the north side, and Books Upstairs, down south. Hodges & Figgis, is one of the biggest book shops in Europe, you’ll get just about anything.
