OPEN 12th October
The 12th of October Spain celebrates la "Fiesta de la Hispanidad" It is celebrated on this date because Spain thinks they discovered America on the 12 October 1492.
We do not celebrate discoveries of places that didn't need to be discovered or imperialisms or genocides of any sort.
That means Hibernian will be open on the 12th October
Normal hours: 10:45 to 20:30.
WARNING ABOUT ONLINE CATALOGUE
We are currently involved in inventoring our stock.
It's a slow process, but there are now some sections where the online catalogue is reliable: Literature, Theatre, Poetry, Novel, Music, Philosophy, Crime, Thriller...
For the rest of the sections, do not assume that books you find in the catalogue will actually be in the shop. Do call us to find out: 932 174 796.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
Hibernian Books is the only secondhand English Bookshop in Barcelona, the cosmopolitan capital city of Catalunya. We are an actual physical shop.
We opened our first shop in May 2004 after boxing (with the help of friends and family) and shipping from Dublin some 30.000 books. In January 2006 we moved to our present location.
With more than 40,000 books in our collection we have a wide range of fiction and non fiction titles in stock. From children's books through to antique novels, we have books to fit every taste and prices to meet every pocket.
Most of our stock is used books, but we also have a small selection of new books and a growing selection of overstocks, books that are nearly new at a nice price. Please check our contact details and location map for exact details on how to find us.
Our book catalogue is now on-line, enabling you to browse our stock. The on-line shop has been on its way for years, but is now a reality in the horizon. We will be able to ship to all parts of Spain and the rest of Europe, providing you with a great value alternative to the "Book Giants" with their exorbitant shipping fees.
