78 Southmall, Cork City

We are hiring. Click here for current positions

Located in the old Cork library, The Bookshelf South Mall was the first Bookshelf to open its doors in 2012. Sit in and appreciate the local and quirky artwork, grab a seat by the window and look out at the buzzing South Mall or simply order to takeaway – our style is relaxed, open and friendly. Serving speciality coffee from The Barn, freshly baked scones, breakfast, weekend brunch, lunch and sweet treats, come for a coffee with a good book or a brunch date with your friends or anything in between!
