A lot of classic books discounted here. Good prices on a lot of the art books too. If you can't find anything you like here, then you don't like to read.

My wife particularly liked this store. It has new books downstairs and a whole floor of used books upstairs. Nothing "first edition", but many interesting books across a wide spectrum of topics.

This place is huge and has a lot of amazing books. The prices are reasonable (2 to 10 euros) and they are quite diverse. I spent a good hour just browsing and I'm planning on going back there, just to admire the books.

As part of our annual Christmas preparation we always spend a day in town shopping and part of that day is a trip to Chapters the best bookshop in Dublin. Huge range of books, knowledgeable staff and great atmosphere. You could spend a day here.
