The Bookshop has served customers in Inishowen for nearly 30 years. It has been a mainstay of Inishowen life for those years, providing the widest range of books on Donegal and the North West available anywhere. As well as that we have thousands of books on every subject under the sun including anything relating to Ireland (history, politics, geography, fiction etc., an extensive thriller, romance and general fiction sections. Upstairs we have sport, cookery, music, world history, religion, travel, mind body & soul, biographies and much much more. And of course not forgetting our extensive vinyl collection. It's a must visit if you are in the area.
