Three former individual shops now sharing the same premises. A good idea which works well and saves on costs. The books were all clearly in order over numerous shelves and offered old with remaindered new. My specific interest in media titles saw a number of purchases particularly those of a local interest. There are some pleasant surprises to be found here.  Chris Harte 19.10.16

Founded in the autumn of 2011. It is a bookshop of the traditional sort, with a very wide range of hand-picked titles arranged by subject and in alphabetical order.

A lovely bookshop incorporated with a cafe (whose quality home-made food was near perfection). My two hours browsing time was far too short. Had I not had a ferry to catch I would have spent far more time examining the stock in detail. John, the owner, has had years of experience in the book trade, mainly in London. Hence his shelves were groaning with personally selected titles, of which I purchased quite a few. Some subjects were of top quality. Just as an aside, while planning my book-buying trip around Ireland, I sent emails to my selected shops asking about their holdings of books of my interests. John took the effort of using his 'phone to take photos of what he had in stock. Therefore I could let him know which books interested me. That is customer relations of the highest order.  Chris Harte 09.11.15
Just a note to add that the owner, John Wyse-Jackson, is now publishing 'Zoom,' a magazine devoted to Irish literary and bookshop matters.  Chris Harte 14.04.17
