    What are your shipping charges?

    Within Ireland, you may choose to have your books delivered, or you may prefer to collect them from your nearest branch.  There is never any charge for collecting your books.  Small orders will be delivered by An Post; larger orders will be delivered by courier service - in both cases we recommend using a delivery address where someone will be present to receive the delivery and sign for it if necessary.

    Do you stock all the books on your website? Are all the books available?

    At any time we have approximately 35,000 different titles in stock.  In order to offer the widest range possible to our customers, we also list every book we expect to be able to source easily.  Where we do not have a book in stock, we will order it from the publisher or wholesaler.  Although we strive to keep all the information on the website up to date, we may find that a book is temporarily unavailable, or has gone out of print. If there will be any delay in fulfilling your order we will contact you by email.

    Are the prices the same online as in your shops?

    We do our best to keep prices the same but with so many books involved, complete accuracy is not always possible. Where there is a discrepancy, we will charge you the lower of the two prices.
