Mary Ryan’s Books
UPDATED 25/8/21: Mary Ryan's at Milton is currently closed as it relocates a few doors down, and will be re-opening at the new address end-Sept / early-Oct.
Mary Ryan's is one of those places that is so many things to different people – a children’s corner, magazines and newspapers, a mini ABC shop of DVDs and CDs, book groups, the latest top sellers and a café to boot – yet it does the majority of them well (the service at times can be a bit patchy).
Taking up a sizable corner on Park Road, this is the largest of the Mary Ryan collection of bookstores, an independent seller focussed on quality fiction and non-fiction.
It’s a pleasant place to while away a couple of hours on a rainy day with a coffee, crepe and salad in the café and a pile of just purchased books after a lengthy browse.
On Friday nights from 5pm-6pm there is a book reading for children while parents can enjoy an uninterrupted coffee and snack.
Other Mary Ryan’s stores are located at Merthyr Village New Farm.
