Dubray Books is Ireland’s leading dedicated bookseller. We began as a single shop in 1973, founded by Helen Clear in the seaside town of Bray in Co. Wicklow. Helen’s daughter Gemma and her husband Kevin took over the business in 1988, growing the group to an eight store estate with shops in Grafton St, Rathmines, Stillorgan, Galway, Blackrock, Dun Laoghaire and Liffey Valley.
At Dubray, reading is our passion: we are staffed by booklovers, for booklovers. Recommendations are our speciality and our team are always happy to help you discover new reads, explore favourite genres, or to identify the perfect gift for any occasion – including our Personal Shopper and Book Subscription services. Our monthly Dubray Staff Recommended Reads have been read and reviewed by our booksellers, and our Dubray Favourites showcase the very best new children’s releases as researched by our enthusiastic team of children’s booksellers.
Dubray Blackrock opened in 2003 when Dubray acquired Bookstop in Blackrock and Dun Laoghaire Shopping Centres. This is now one of our busiest shops, handy in its proximity to the Blackrock branch of Super Valu.
