I loved wandering in and out of several book and paper stores. This one was a highlight for me as they had lovely Irish coffee table books.

Paid a quick visit in July with the kids in tow. Would be better alone with an hour or two to spare. There is a big selection of books and some searching would be required to pick out the undoubted gems hidden on the big shelves.

I love this small quirky shop! Converted from a small terraced cottage in the central market area of Ennis town the shop is a haven of pre loved books of all descriptions. Wander upstairs to the tiny packed rooms to explore further. I bought some new Irish comics produced locally as Gaeilge. Wonderful!

Ennis is a little gen of a town for strollers with it's ambience and narrow laneways and streets. Right in the market square is this little gem of a bookstore which is imbued with old world atmosphere. Lovely feeling of warmth and charm and a feeling of times past when bookstores were places refuge and peace Be sure to drop in and experience a lovely feeling!

Scéal Eile is a bookshop located in the Market area of Ennis. While some new books can be purchased there, many by local authors, the shop specialises in secondhand books. If you enjoy browsing through book shelves in the hope of finding something to interest you then this is the place for you. The staff are helpful and friendly. The classical music provides a relaxing atmosphere. Prices are reasonable. Collector items naturally cost a little more. Drop in and you may leave very satisfied with a unique purchase. Don't forget to pop upstairs.
