I found this bookstore by accident on a recent visit to Galway. We were wandering around the city centre before lunch and found it by chance. I spent over an hour browsing inside, I could have spent a lot longer. The range and variety of fiction, non-fiction, reference, new and 2nd hand books is extensive. There's also a foreign language... 更多
Visited this book shop one weekend in Galway. There is such a massive range of books and the staff are so helpful. The place really encourages you to want to read.

My heart skipped a beat when I finally laid eyes on Charlie Byrne's Bookshop. If you are a serious book lover, be prepared to spend some time (and money) here. An amazing selection of new & used books, with, of course, a heavy emphasis on Irish related titles & authors. The staff is friendly and helpful and knows their stuff.... 更多
Made the trip across the island to the bookstore. Thousands of titles from all genres and for all ages. If you're a bibliophile then you need to stop in.
The last place I expected to spend time in was a bookstore, and we were probably in there for an hour! It has a wonderful selection of books, new and old. Worth a peek if you are strolling by. Worth a planned visit if you are a book lover.
Large, large selection of new and used across wide range of categories. Best way to beat the overwhelmingly touristy downtown scene in Galway.
An extraordinary find in the heart of Galway. A large sprawling book shop of endless shelves piled high with books, new, second hand and antiquarian and a real browser's home away from home, So many books, alas so little time. Make this a must on your must do list, if you are any way interested in reading.
Charlie Byrne's Bookshop sprawls across several rooms, floor to ceiling packed with one the most eclectic selection of new and used books I found while visiting Ireland. They have all kinds of events: author readings, things for kids, but also quiet spaces for you to browse and wade through the incredible selection. Give this place a spot on your checklist... 更多
