Story Time


Charlie Byrne’s Bookshop is home to a popular Saturday-morning Story Time. Join us every Saturday morning for stories, rhymes and magical adventures with children’s book expert Michaela. Our story time kicks off at 11am, when she shares well-loved favourites, exciting new releases, and a vast variety of brilliant picture books and with the help of our resident orangutan, The Librarian, makes sure we only have the best and funniest stories for every Saturday morning story session!Our free story time takes place among comfy chairs in the children’s section, and is suitable for kids of all ages, especially younger children. Be sure to check out our events listings for our Book Club selections. Everyone is welcome to attend!


In addition to storytime, our children’s section often hosts children’s book launches, visiting authors and literary events. Each year we host internationally-acclaimed children’s authors in our children’s section, including laureate na nÓg Niamh Sharkey, other fantastic Irish authors such as Enda Wyley and Malachy Doyle, and author-illustrator mother-and-daughter team Joyce and Polly Dunbar.

Feel free to contact Michaela at 091-561-766 or if you would like to arrange a special reading for your class or group, launch a children’s book, or visit our shop to read or sign books.
