Charlie Byrne’s bookshop is an ode to the written word. In fiction, hard-boiled crime writer Ken Bruen’s character Jack Taylor drops into the landmark shop to talk to the namesake owner and his manager, Vinny Browne. In real life, writers Pat McCabe and Kevin Barry were among the many fans who congratulated the pair on winning their Best Shops award, which Browne says has increased their business by 10 per cent. “It allowed us to expand our online presence and we now have customers from all over the world connecting with us,” Browne says. Charlie Byrne’s Bookshop, Cornstore Mall, Middle St, Galway. tel: 091-561766
