Established in 2006, The Reading Room is an independent bookshop, based in the picturesque town of Carrick on Shannon, Co Leitrim.  We offer a wide and eclectic selection of books and host book clubs, book related events and readings.

We are always happy to recommend books based on customer preference and sell book tokens, both national and our own and offer a bespoke subscription service, where a carefully chosen book will be posted once a month for the chosen time period.

We currently do not sell online but if you would like us to get something for you do get in touch at books@thereadingroom.ie
