“A welcoming experience when in Enniskerry ”
Review of Magpie Books - CLOSED

Magpie Books
Reviewed 18 November 2017 via mobile

I regularly visit magpie books when I am in Enniskerry. It must be the coziest bookshop in Ireland with its inviting atmosphere.
The owners Frank and Amy are always happy to give recommendations when I am looking for a special gift or a gripping read for myself.
They seem to have an unlimited knowledge about new releases and of children’s books. Their recommendations of adult and children’s books are always spot on.
Independent bookshops will have a bright future if they can be as customer focused as the delightful Magpie books.

If you are ever in Enniskerry- call in and get a fantastic holiday read or special gift to take home.

Upon entering this gem of a shop you will be greated with the wonderful smell of ink on paper and a warm smile from owner Amy. Despite the shop‘s size it offers a large selection to choose from and of course I couldn’t help but buy myself something to read for the bus ride back to Dublin. Chatting with Amy was delightful and it is really good to see that there are still small, independent bookshops that add to their communities. If you find yourself in Enniskerry take the chance to step into Magpies, you will most certainly not regret it.
