Vote Here: Wexford Bookshop Currently Winning Poll To Be Named Ireland’s Best Bookshop

A bookshop in Wexford is currently winning a poll to be named the best bookshop in Ireland…

An online poll, which was set up by Freelance journalist Sophie Grenham, has seen one Wexford bookshop get the most votes at the time of publication.

Red Books, which has appeared on several articles on Wexford Weekly, is currently leading the online poll. Red Books is located in St Peter’s Square in Wexford town and is run by its founder Wally O’Neill.

Described as a “bookworm’s paradise” and a “traditional bookshop not without its eccentricities” by Luke Bradley back in September, it is no surprise to see it doing so well in the online poll.

The lovely little Wexford town bookshop currently has 665 votes out of the total 1,583 votes. At the time of writing, The Nenagh Bookshop in Tipperary are in second place while Quay Books in Limerick are in third place.

It is unknown when voting for this poll will end.

Sophie’s Irish Bookshop of The Year is an annual national piece that the freelance journalist does and she stated that:

“I’ve been doing this for years and it’s always uplifting to see shoppers express their affection for these pillars of the community.”
