The Bookmart was founded in 2001 and has since become Sligo’s only second-hand bookshop.
Every inch of our shelves are stacked with all kinds of books- we reckon there’s about 15, 000 of them out on the shelves at any one time! When you’re browsing around the shop, don’t hesitate to ask us any questions you have- we can even order out of print books for you.
Trade-ins: Bookmart no longer accepts books for cash, but we do give store credit for book donations whenever we can. Our ability to accept books depends on their condition and popularity.
Illuminations: Named after Rimbaud’s groundbreaking poetry cycle, ‘Illuminations’ is an occasional event we run which invites poets and aspiring poets to read original work or their favorite piece of poetry. See instore for details of our next event.
