Maynooth Bookshop

The Maynooth Bookshop


We are a family owned independent bookshop based in Maynooth, Ireland. We opened our doors in 1988 and have grown with the town of Maynooth ever since. We stock new and second hand primary and secondary level schoolbooks, as well as a wide range of stationery and cards. We also supply directly to local schools in Maynooth, Leixlip, Celbridge, Enfield, Kilcock and many more. In store we also stock a wide range of new and classic titles for all ages. We pride ourselves on going the extra mile to find the book you are looking for; if it is in print, chances are we can get it for you.

"The Maynooth Bookshop, 68 Main St, Maynooth, Co Kildare
Owner Cian Byrne fulfilled the idle daydreams of many when he went from being a data analyst to running a bookshop. In his case, he had a head start – the Maynooth Bookshop had been in the family for 30 years, and taking it over was a natural next step.

Maynooth Bookshop, Co Kildare

This shop must make its living with supplying school books but that doesn’t stop them stocking lots of intriguing titles including my own. Great for stationary too.
