How lucky we were to stumble upon Hodges Figgis during our first, brief visit to Dublin! Such a delightful place, from the inviting, pretty storefront that draws you in, to the several floors inside the shop, lined with bookshelves and filled with interesting and tempting...More

Lovely old world bookshop. Its stock isn't trapped in the 19th century however, and it stocks a wide range of the latest releases. Easons has nothing on it. I'd argue that it is the best bookshop in Dublin. Even though it is now part of...More

Set some time aside to visit this old fashioned bookstore. Filled with nooks and crannies there is at least a dozen books there for everyone! The cook book section I found dreamy and brought home a couple treasures to remember Ireland in my kitchen.

I've lost count of how many (fruitful!) hours I've spent wandering this bookshop. Great selection of books, helpful and informative staff. Head to their basement also for nice bargains.

Very good bookshop in Dublin, close to Trinity College Dublin. The staff were helpful, and offered to order in a book for me that they didn't have in stock. I highly recommend this place!

If you can't find something of interest here, then you're not interested in very much. Great art book section as well as a huge display of Irish themed books. I stopped in 3 times while I was in Dublin.

This is a bookstore to end all bookstores! I am dreaming about going again. If you love books, this store offers several floors of well-stocked and displayed books and special tables with quotes and other books in genres you might want to consider. The staff...More
