sceal eile books (64)We love to showcases & support books written by local people, books published locally and books of local interest.

Many of these books are signed by the author.

With technology providing new ways to print, publish, and promote books, there are more authors who choose to sell books individually or through small local presses. This is a great bonus to local communities, as more of our neighbours print their stories and poems or delve into local history. But sadly, the majority of these books are hard to find. Good news! Here at Scéal Eile Books, we stock many of these local, independent, and small press books (the west of Ireland is a hotbed of independent thinkers, artists, writers, historians & poets). We are always happy to look up a book or author you might be interested in. We also ship books worldwide at reasonable rates. Give us a call, send an email or just drop in to the shop!

We love to promote our local authors. Because we prefer to buy directly from writers & publishers, and encourage them to bring their books to us directly, readers frequently meet writers in Scéal Eile Books. Many of our featured writers and publishers are also valued customers!

If you are a local writer/publisher and are interested in us stocking your titles or launching your books, please contact us on 065 6848648 or at scealeileboooks@gmail.com – we’d love to hear from you!
