The Time Traveller's Bookshop

This specialist bookshop is a treasure trove of antique and rare books. The shelves are brimming with first or signed editions from the 16th century onward - as well as an impressive vinyl selection. The shop has two branches, one in the heart of Cork City, and the other in the picturesque town of Skibbereen (Castletownsend Rd).


Many leading retailers can be found in the immediate city centre, which is so compact you’ll find it easy to explore it on foot. As well as this, Cork is home to an impressive array of smaller local businesses, with no shortage of gift ideas.
