We buy, sell and exchange used and second-hand books. A huge selection awaits you, including crime novels, literary and genre fiction and Irish interest. We also specialise in tracking down and ordering in out of print, specialist and rare books.

A Note on Selling Your Second-Hand Books:

Our price is based on their secondhand retail value, which takes into account an item’s desirability, it’s price new and our current stock levels.

These are our general guidelines (which are subject to change):
No rips, tears, stains or odours
No writing or highlighting (owner’s name written in the front is fine)
No loose pages
No broken bindings
No library or ex-library books
No proof copies or books marked “not for resale”
All hardcovers should have a dustjacket (if originally sold with one)
All books that included media (CDs, DVDs, maps etc) should have them
We don’t buy magazines or out-of-date travel guides.

If you have a large quantity of books to sell, please ring ahead on 021-4279535 to ensure someone is there to go through them/buy them in. We do not allow drop-offs i.e. you must stay with your books as they are being appraised.
