Visit the typewriter museum in Derry

Little Acorns Bookstore is not only the largest independent bookstore in the north west of Ireland, but it also houses Ireland’s only Typewriter Museum.

Whether you want to take a few pictures or learn more about typewriters, you should definitely pay a visit to our bookstore. In addition to our collection of antique typewriters, we have a collection of over 25,000 books belonging to different genres. Get in touch with us for more information.

This is a goldmine, treasure trove of a place. Jenni (and her occasional team) are most helpful and friendly.

The Little Acorns bookstore is a small bookshop with a well-priced range of second hand and some antiquarian books across a wide range of fiction and non-fiction, with no particular speciality. It is housed in a standalone unit within the Britannia Hall and can be considered part of the Society Street Indoor Market housed within the Britannia Hall.

First time in Little Acorns. What a place. I love a good book shop. Also a really nice and friendly owner. A real pleasure I will be back.
