    There are 2 huge independent bookshop, bridge street and lavitts quay, massive range of new and used books, if its not there chances are they can order it in. Excellent friendly knowledgable staff, the one on bridge street has really cheap books, starting at €1.99 for brand new books!!!!!
    The one on lavitts quay has a massive selection of new books as well as a really good photography, art and architecture section.

    What to buy: BOOKS!!!!!!!!!!!

    Vibes and Scribes: Bookbuyers Anonymous

    by Ekaterinburg Written May 26, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you don't buy something in Vibes and Scribes you are either incredibly mean/poor or impossible to please. This shop has something for everybody: fact or fiction on every topic known to God or man; stationary and art supplies; music and video. Material is new and secondhand at absolutely bargain prices. Contemporary and classic fiction, for example, sells from as little as E3.99. The range of travel guides is superb and art and coffee-table books tempt you from every side. Whatever your interest, I guarantee that Vibes and Scribes will have a book for you. Staff are young, enthusiastic and helpful. This is definitely the place ito buy books on Ireland or any other presents you may wish to bring home with you.

    Vibes and Scribes is open seven days a week from 10 am to 8pm. The original shop is on Bridge Street with a large second store now open on Lavitts Quay.

    What to buy: Books, Arthouse Videos, Music, Stationary, College text Books, Gifts

    What to pay: Prices are extremely reasonable, You can buy books here from as little as E1.99

    Connally's Bookshop - Paul St.

    Living Tradition - cd's and stuff - off of MacCurtain St.
