Welcome to Halfway up the Stairs

Welcome to Halfway up the Stairs! We are a children’s bookshop based in Greystones, Co Wicklow. We stock books for all children – from babies right up to young adults – and we also stock a selection of high quality toys and gifts. We have recently launched a subscriptions and gift box service – see The Gift of Books here.

We feel it is important to have a wide range of books, stocking not only bestsellers but also new, diverse and imaginative books. We have a strong representation of Irish authors and a comprehensive Irish language section.

We have a selection of our most popular and highly recommended books available to buy here on our website. Please search through the categories or use the tags for our most loved books. If you would like to order anything you do not see in our online shop, please fill in the form here, or visit us in the shop. We have also included some bestselling children’s books in our Bestsellers category. We will continue to add more toys and games to the website.

We were delighted to be nominated for Children’s Bookseller of the Year 2021 (Ireland & the UK, see more info here) and to be longlisted for the An Post Book Awards Bookshop of the Year. Thank you to everyone who voted for us.
