Dubray Opens New Bookshop

Dubray books has opened a second bookshop in Dun Laoghaire.

The store is in the former Swalk Card and Gift shop with entrances on George’s Street and into Dun Laoghaire shopping centre.

The company owns the Swalk operation and the existing and considerably larger Dubray store on the third floor of Dun Laoghaire Shopping centre has been reorganized to cater for a large Swalk concession.

Adrian White from Dubrary said by email, ‘The advantage of having a bookshop on the main street is obvious and, in a way, it’s the perfect companion to what has always been a very large stock-holding shop upstairs.’

He also said that the company hopes to, ‘make our new shop both small and beautiful.’

With the closure of Easons George’s street store Dubray is now the only bookseller of new books with a George’s street frontage. Eason’s Marine Road store is in the former Hughes & Hughes branch closed following that company’s collapse in 2010.
