The Lilliput Press, is one of Ireland’s smallest publishing houses established in 1984 by Antony Farrell. The bookshop moved to its current location in Stoneybatter from County Westmeath in 1984. The original place being nearby the townland of Lilliput, inspired Jonathan Swift as well as Antony Farrell in the naming of his bookshop and publishing house.  

Comfortable sofas and armchairs give The Lilliput Press bookshop the air of a cosy sitting room. The bookcases are filled with a wide variety of Irish interest books, authors such as James Joyce, John Moriarty, J.P. Donleavy and many others. Th Lilliput Press specializes in biography, historical non-fiction and memoirs, but is also one of the leading fiction publishers in Ireland and are known for discovering exciting new talents such as Donal Ryan, Rob Doyle, Elske Rahill and Adrian Duncan. There is also a fine selection of limited and special editions, all of which have a limited print-run, and many of which are signed and numbered. 

"As custodians of the written word, we cherish our independence of judgment, originality of thought, and the singularity of Irish culture in a polyglot universe."
