Email Hack on Tuesday 19th October 2021 – We have been notified that our info@ email address was hacked on Tuesday 19th October 2021 at approx. 11am. This originated from a job application email with attached CV, sadly our Antivirus did not pick-up a virus that was in the CV attachment. This resulted in a number of customers who had previously received emails from us (emails in our Sent folder) receiving a Spam email from us. Our web host automatically shut down the email within a few minutes and all our passwords were reset. No customer information was compromised or harvested – it was simply a new email sent to existing customers without our consent. Most customers’ emails automatically blocked the Spam but we’re aware that a few customers did receive this email and we’re very sorry for this. All staff have been briefed against opening any unsolicited email attachments and we will continue to work with our website provider to ensure this does not happen again. Apologies, Bob.
Both of our bookshops are open for browsing – see our opening hours below. Post-out and Click & Collect options available for all online orders. Please do wait for email confirmation that your Click & Collect order is ready before calling to collect it! Use our Contact / Book Search webpage for inquiries wherever possible so that we can provide you with all the information you need quickly and easily. Thank you, Bob.
We are an independent bookshop based in Dublin, Ireland. Our original store opened on Cow’s Lane in Temple Bar in 2009, and we opened our second shop in Dalkey, a seaside village in South Dublin in 2013.
We aim to provide something a bit different from the range you find in large chain bookshops, as well as offering the opportunity to discover something new and exciting that you’ll struggle to uncover on a internet bookshop search.
We also hold lots of book-related events, readings and bookclubs so do pop in and say hello if you’re close to either of our lovely bookshops!
