In Kinsale, an indie bookshop is hosting intimate gigs at night
Hanging out in Kinsale at the mo?
A village bookshop has announced a series of intimate gigs happening inside its atmospheric little premises on 43 Main Street.
Prim’s Bookshop is a cool, quiet treasure trove of good secondhand books (and one lovely dog) and a must-stop if you’re en route to the beach and in need of a decent read.
But if you’re planning on hitting Kinsale for the evening, you can check out singer-songwriter Caoi de Barra (of Wyvern Lingo) and Maija Sofia (fresh off the Opera House stage where she supported Sharon van Etten a few weeks ago), who will be performing live in the coming days.
The gigs are a response to some changes in the town, which was once a hub for musicians from all over the globe.
“We’ve always held small events, music, poetry, small book launches, but more recently a few of the venues in town that used to provide people with some good, alternative music choices have closed.” bookshop owner Simon Prim told Yay Cork.

“We’ve decided to try to provide this again and bring something back to Kinsale that we feel was maybe lacking.”
“We’re hoping that it will appeal to music fans in Kinsale and around Cork of all ages who may want to experience a venue that’s a little bit different and very intimate with a max capacity of 40 people (at a squeeze!).”
You can BYOB if you like and the shop will be serving coffee and tea before and after shows too. Book your tickets from €12 here.
