Bridge Street Books is an independent, family run bookshop set in an old house, right in the heart of Wicklow Town. Open since November 1999, the building is full of nooks & crannies were you can hide while browsing our extensive range of books.

We are all passionate about books & reading and enjoy nothing more than recommending great reads, helping you find the books you want - and maybe a few you didn't even know you were looking for! We believe there is a book out there for everyone & will help you pick the right book for any occasion.

If we don't have a book you want, we can order it for you & text you when the book arrives. We like to say 'If a book is in print, we can get it' - we will go to great lengths to find the most obscure book, if that is the one you want!

We love hosting author events in Bridge Street Books & have been delighted in the past to welcome such celebrities as Derek Landy (Skulduggery Pleasant), Rebecca Miller and Donal Ryan (The Spinning Heart). We have also welcomed The Gruffalo and Maisy Mouse, held a cookery demonstration by Catherine Fulvio & had the children of Wicklow hunt for Wally all over the town.

It is always a pleasure to welcome local authors Emma Hannigan, Melissa Hill & Jackie Burke & more recently Alan Timmons (Here in No Place), Oona Frawley (Flight) and Micheal Delahunty (This is Wicklow) to BSB to launch their books.

Please see below a list of upcoming and exciting events which we will be hosting:

Although we stock hundreds of titles, we unfortunately cannot stock everything! If there is a title you want, which we do not have, we will order it in for you. This includes college books.

We order books on a daily basis & delivery is generally 2-4 days. Books ordered from America take a little longer but are normally delivered within 10 days. Please fill out the form below & we and we will reply with cost & estimated delivery times.

We will then text or email when your order is delivered to us.

We offer 10% discount to schools – so if you are stocking your library or need to purchase a class set, please contact us.

Joanna is an avid reader of childrens’ books and as we have run a Junior Book Club for years, we have a very good knowledge of the books & their content. We can help you choose a book for a class or schools book club & in some instances we can obtain teachers notes too.
