When lovers of Irish literature and antiquarian books die, if they’ve been good, they get to spend eternity in this shop. Formerly called Cathach Books, this is where to come for rare copies of Joyce, Yeats, Wilde, Behan, Stoker, and just about every luminary of the Irish canon you can think of. Prices range from the barely affordable (€375 for a rare 1927 Dracula) to the stratospheric (€35,000 for a first-edition Ulysses), but it’s simply heaven to browse.
