Eason has been a favourite shop of mine for a long time - I think I used to visit everyday once we were allowed 'down town' on our school lunchtimes! They have recently undergone some major refurbishments and I had a look around last weekend. Upstairs is now a wonderland of all things stationery and giftware related - I got lost for about 20 minutes up there! Downstairs is still dedicated to books and magazines - with a lovely new children's reading area. I would really recommend a visit if you're around Cork this summer!
