Marrowbone Books

is a small second-hand bookshop in Dublin 8. We have a good selection of good books. Mostly fiction. Mostly paperbacks. Mostly pretty cheap. We don’t have everything, but we usually have the good stuff.

We’re home to Ireland’s best selection of novels by Alison Lurie, one assumes.


  1. Fri 12–7
  2. Sat 10–7
  3. Sun-Thurs closed

These shortened hours are a COVID thing: We’ll return to our regular opening hours when it’s safe to do so.
