ScéalEile Books stocks new, used and bargain books as well as an extensive collection of rare, out-of-print, and first edition books. The books on our shelves are carefully and personally chosen by ScéalEile Books’ staff. Years of experience with local customers and knowledge of local interests helps us carefully select books you will love. The books you see on our shelves are not automatically sent by publishers, nor are these titles chosen by someone in some remote office. If you don’t see books on a topic of interest to you please let us know. Thanks to you, ScéalEile Books is able to continue keeping local readers in mind. At ScéalEile Books, we love to buy books directly from writers & small publishers. Many of these writers choose to bring their titles in to the shop themselves – our shop is a hub of writers and readers. Opening hours are Monday to Saturday 11 am-6 pm. ScéalEile is a special events arts venue – it does not host events on a fixed schedule basis. The venue is a beautiful, dynamic space known for our high-quality intimate events, and for powerful collaborations with actors, writers, performers, and artists. As well as traditional readings and book launches, we have previously hosted events as diverse as live music performance, micro art exhibitions, film screenings and theatrical performance. ScéalEile has even provided the backdrop to wedding photographs!

Our theatre company ScéalEile Productions produces events in ScéalEile and tours plays to theatres and venues both nationally and internationally.
