Kennys In the Media
Máirtín Ó Muilleoir and his wife Helen visit Kennys BookshopThis week saw the visit to Kenny's of Máirtín Ó Muilleoir MLA, a Sinn Féin politician, author, publisher and businessman, who served as the 58th Lord Mayor of Belfast. An avid blogger Máirtín went away and very kindly waxed lyrical about his experience here in a piece he entitled "Kenny’s Bookstore in Galway go toe to toe with Amazon". #GRMA a Mháirtín - thank you for the kind words, it was lovely to see yourself and Helen in Galway.
Are Kennys and Charlie Byrne’s the world’s friendliest competitors?!Books make truly magical gifts and this year, Charlie Byrne’s and Kennys Bookshops have joined forces to promote Galway’s independent bookshops.
Conor Pope of The Irish Times looked at the phenomenon of Cyber Monday on the 28th of November - and we were very happy to see Kennys.ie put in a very favourable light:
kennys.ie: Kenny’s Bookshop in Galway was one of the first retailers in Ireland to embrace the online marketplace and it has a digital footprint that goes all the way back to the mid-1990s. It is still a wonderful website and pleasingly far from all the maddening, garishly designed tech- obsessed websites in the world. The collection is immense and they deliver for free.
Thanks Conor! Read the full article @ The Irish Times on-line >>>

A great world traveller, Josse has visited and documented more than 90 countries ...and counting.
He has worked for 37 years with the Guide du Routard.
