About The Company Of Books

The Company of Books opened at 96 Ranelagh Village in November 2009. Long recognised as one of Ireland’s leading Independent Bookshops, we were shortlisted as one of the Top Three Independent Bookshops in Ireland in 2021 and 2022. We were one of Five National Finalists and are the Dublin Regional Winner of the An Post Bookshop of the Year Award 2021. Gwen was honoured to be shortlisted as one of eight booksellers across the UK and Ireland in the Individual Bookseller category at the Book Awards in London in May 2022.

Our online bookshop has also gained praise from customers, and we were listed as one of the Top 100 Irish Online Retailers by The Irish Times. We are delighted to be featured in both the 2023 Ireland The Best guide by John and Sally McKenna and the 2023 Dublin Like A Local by DK Eyewitness guides.

Our loyal customer base enjoys our eclectic mix of fiction, non-fiction and children’s books offering something for everyone. Spot a review of a book you’d like to read?

We also sell book vouchers and a range of beautiful cards and stationery.
