Selling Your Old Books to High Street Books

Please call to see us instore so that a member of staff can sort through your old books.

Before your visit, please be advised that we cannot buy the following:


Buying Second-hand instore:

We do not sell second-hand online. In our experience, customers like to inspect the condition of the books in our store before buying .

We are unable to check the shops for secondhand in our “online chat” as we are based in our office/warehouse and do not have access to current stock levels . Please contact our shops directly on Find Our Stores

Senior Cycle:

Many of the popular  Irish, Maths and option subjects should be available in Summer 2020. There are some that must be bought new , such as the Poetry Books , revised editions due to curriculum changes etc.

Junior Cycle:

The second-hand selection for 1st year students 2020 is not expected to be great. The phasing in of the new Junior Cycle has meant new editions in almost every subject. There are some subjects such as Business Studies, Science and English where we may have used copies available but it depends on what is on your booklist.
