We are delighted to be celebrating our 50th anniversary this year. Since our first branch was opened in Bray Co. Wicklow in 1973 by Helen Clear, we have taken huge pleasure in recommending a wide range of books to readers young and old. A bookshop is a community, and many people have helped us along the way. We are so grateful to our Dubray booksellers over the years, to our fantastic authors and publishers, and of course to our customers. We’d like to take this opportunity to say heartfelt thank you: we hope that we can continue to help you to discover new books for at least another 50 years. The Dubray staff have recommended thousands of titles throughout the years but here is a selection of some of these cherished reads that have stood the test of time and are still being discovered and loved by new readers every day.
