Established in 1989, Charlie Byrne’s Bookshop has expanded over the years to six rooms housing more than 100,000 new, bargain, secondhand and antiquarian books. The exterior walls that face into The Cornstore, a covered shopping mall, are lined with eye-catching fully-filled bookshelves.  

In store events include monthly book clubs, children's storytime, book launches, literary events, book signings, and readings.

"Deliveries of secondhand and remaindered books arrive from the warehouse nearly every day, so there’s always something new to be found on our shelves. Plus, our Middle Street shop stocks new books – including new but hard-to-get titles on topics of Irish interest – and we always do our best to have a selection of the latest bestsellers on hand."
