THE BANTRY BOOKSHOP
Situated in the heart of the historical maritime town of Bantry, the Bantry Bookstore continues a proud tradition of independent bookstores in West Cork. Owned and run by sisters Kate Smyth and Marney Smyth Fischer, the bookshop offers a wide variety of reading materials from contemporary Irish and international fiction and poetry, non fiction, history, archaeology and Irish culture, nature and science, as well as a Children’s Department, literature for teens and young adults and extensive second hand, bargain book and greeting card departments. We also offer a special order service, ensuring readers always have timely access to reading material of their choice.
At Bantry Bookshop we believe in finding the right books for every reader! We provide new publications as they appear on a weekly basis, as well as offering current front list titles in our new books department. Middle and backlist titles can be ordered as required, and we work with you to find the books you want to read. More than this, however, we want to encourage people to read widely, to try out writers and subjects beyond their usual range of interests. Just ask!
