The name is not a reference to the gutter press, but refers instead to that uplifting Oscar Wilde quote “we are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.” The Gutter Bookshop is an independent bookshop situated in the Cow’s Lane area of Dublin’s popular Temple Bar. The owners of The Gutter have set out to offer something a little bit different than you’ll find in the bigger bookshop chains and they even run a book club that promises many lively discussions. Those buying for younger readers will find the childrens’ section is especially well-stocked.
