Sligo is a real gem when it comes to independent shops, the Bookmart is just one of them.
The shop is located on Bridge Street, next to the Gourmet Parlour – books and cake – sure what more could you want? Donal was telling me he thinks they have around 20,000 books in the shop. Some are new, some used and some rare.
Not only is the Bookmart a book shop but they produce a quarterly arts magazine featuring poetry, prose, photography and art. They are also home to the Click Clack writers group, I’m told this is a great group, very friendly and encouraging.
So if you love browsing books pay the Bookmart a visit, you’ll be glad you did.
