If I could give this shop 10 stars I would , love it, love it, love it, the staff are brilliant they are most helpful and nothing is a problem, they also very helpful to us poor college students. They sell the most amazing books and with a push will give great recommendations.

Dublin has a rich literary tradition and this place is one of the last bastions of that culture still around. Much as we all love Amazon, you can't beat a wander around this book store. The staff are insanely well informed. It's particularly good for children's books. They've also got seats plonked around and no one seems to really mind if you sit down and browse a while. Before buying, of course.

best book store in Dublin, by far. Wall to wall with leafy tomes, ideal for browsing and rain sheltering. Funnily enough they also have the largest selection of Moleskins in Dublin from what I can see too.

From the outside, this bookstore looks beautiful. Inside however...well, it looks cheap. Bookstores these days need to be something special, or they will die. Nobody likes Amazon... The owners of Hodges Figgis should seek to emulate, in my opinion, the style of : Hatchards (London), Daunt Books (London) or Akateeminen Kirjakauppu (Helsinki). A.K is a modernist Aalto masterpiece, but the other 2 are similar in appearance to H.F. A lot of stores in Dublin look wonderful from the outside....but inside are furnished or laid out in a very cheap, shoddy manner - which is a pity! Retailers in Dublin should visit cities of a similar size for inspiration - Copenhagen, Stockholm, Helsinki etc.

Great shop, could spend forever here, just wish there were a few more chairs dotted about, but then they would have to get rid of some books.... so scrap that ! Best bookstore in the city centre

Best book shop in Dublin - very big, good selection, friendly staff. I could spend hours there (and it's so much more fun than browsing Amazon!).

Pricey. But so worth visiting, or just hanging around. Excellent interior, quite good selection of books, friendly staff. Not so friendly prices :D
