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’ve been called a ‘hidden gem’ by literary Dubliners who don’t rate our marketing efforts.


  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.
