Get bookish in Limerick, as you explore their specialist, local-loving independent bookstores. The salesman in these places know their stuff: you’ll drift around the stacks on an endless enthralling browse, or be handed the perfect gift on a plate as you describe your tome of choice in amongst the reams. There’s a refreshing – if not total – lack of chains in this western Irish city, which makes for a pleasant shopping experience and some unusual buying options. Here are our favourite indie bookstores in Limerick.
Naturally, Castle Antiques is a little bit of a pot-luck location when it comes to picking up books: they stock pretty much anything old and classy, in book-form or otherwise. In a beautiful location close to the Shannon River and King John’s Castle, it’s also next door to the fantastic ‘faux castle’ of the Toll House, and an enticing spot to explore. This is the kind of place you’ll want to dig through, and the ideal spot to pick up an unusual souvenir.
