Nothing goes better with a hot cup of coffee than a good book. Just a few steps away from the An Tobar Nua Cafe is the Bóthar Emmaus Bookshop, a speciality Christian bookshop in Galway City. In addition to biographies, life-help, religious, and spiritual books, there is also a wide variety of Bibles, commentaries, and audio Bibles. The bookshop has popular titles that are suited for all. Its large selection of books caters to Catholics and non-Catholic Christians alike.

 The friendly and knowledgable staff are willing and eager to help and serve your needs.  A unique quality of the shop is our excellent customer service.

With a different philanthropic cause for every season, the bookshop and the café partner together to give you the chance to contribute to worldwide causes. It is the one stop shop for any occasion whether it is a birthday, christening, thank you, Holy Communion, or the quest for a perfect souvenir encompassing Ireland’s strong religious roots. Bóthar Emmaus is the exclusive Irish distributor of the historical, hand painted ‘Year of the Holy Name of Jesus’ tile.

Our convenient location makes it an ideal spot to pick up a book and relax overlooking the canal, while enjoying the sights and sounds of Galway City and the café’s free WiFi.

Bóthar Emmaus Bookstore is open Monday to Saturday, 10:30am-5pm.
