BRIDGE STREET BOOKS, WICKLOW TOWN.

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!
