Celebrate World Book Day with a Trip to Barcelona’s Secret English Book Shop

English Book Store in Barcelona Gracia Hibernian Books

ARE THERE ANY GOOD ENGLISH BOOKSTORES IN BARCELONA?

Bookstores in Barcelona are fantastic, if you speak Spanish, but are there any Barcelona bookstores which cater to the English reader/student? Well young friends, I’m going to tell you about one of the best little bookstores in Barcelona.

Hibernian Bookstore Barcelona

The Hibernian second hand bookstore Barcelona offers a a huge selection of books, both old and new and more importantly, all in English! The Hibernian book shop is definitely one of my favourite Barcelona bookstores for a few reasons;

1. A wide selection of books in English – This little Barcelona bookstore offers some 40 000 titles with 30 non fiction sections ranging from biography to Business, but I must say from personal experience, the Hibernian bookstore in Gracia is best for fictional books.

2. The best prices in Barcelona – Barcelona bookstores can be very very expensive and although other Barcelona book stores such as “Happy Books” offer English books in Barcelona, they are generally very expensive. Hibernian Barcelona bookstore sells second hand books at great prices. Many of the books are around €3-4 which is better than $20-25 you will pay in other Barcelona bookstores.

3. Hibernian bookstore Barcelona is in Gracia, my (and most people’s) favourite area of Barcelona, so you can buy your book and then hang out in one of the many cool cafes and bars in Gracia, Barcelona.

4. Hibernian Bookstore Barcelona offers a part-exchange system where you can take your old books and trade them in for something new… or second hand of course. They value the books based on age, condition and whether or not they think anybody will want to buy it.

  • What a charming little book store, makes my mind jump immediately to that little book store in the Hollywood movie “You’ve Got Mail”.

    Remember the one where Meg Ryan is the owner of the lovely little village-type book store and Tom Hanks the owner of the multi-national Book Chain, who sets up a huge store in her neighbourhood forcing Meg out of business!

    Well, it’s good to see that in Gracia, Barcelona there is still a sweet but sturdy, privately run book stores like Hibernian. Long may it survive. And, it will survive if people support it, so well done Ben for blogging about it. With friends like you the owner will sleep easily.

    Bet you won’t be able to find a single Welsh language book in the whole of Barcelona though Ben! ;o))
