I once had a bookshop, for around 20 years. It was partly due to the internet that it eventually close, but - I don't think that will happen to Hurley's. This is a book-lever's treasure trove, tucked away in a back street. All sorts of...More

A good selection of books, very reasonably priced and very helpful staff. The shop also sells delicious chocolate in a variety of unusual flavours. Definitely worth a visit

It is good to see an independent bookshop in a small town as these are so few and far between nowadays in any town and this one has a great number of books to look through

This bookshop seems to have quite a variety of books to everyone choice and taste and it is great to see an independent bookshop instead of a larger chain bookshop Do have a look in this shop when in town
