Our Story

O'Reilly Mescall Limited T/A Reads was founded in 2007 as O'Reilly Mescall Limited t/a Reads at the Sandyford Branch .This branch stemmed from the original Reads of Nassau Street that is/was on Nassau Street, Dublin 2. Since that time we have expanded to include branches in Stillorgan and Bray. We provide design & printing facilities in all three branches along with news, stationery supplies, art supplies and books. The Nassau street store is operated separately through the family as print, design, signage and stationery providers and all stores endeavour to carry the same retail prices where possible and maintain a strong customer service as laid down by the directors of the company.

The reads brand has a very strong tradition of providing students, businesses and the general public with very good customer service and value for money since the business was founded and started by the original directors in the early 1990’s. The Famous Reads of Nassau Street was the original store that then expanded with tourist gift stores and the now Setanta centre large print store on Nassau street. Eason and Sons purchased just the Reads Books and Stationery store and gift store in 2005 and the Reads directors retained and still run the Reads print store at Setanta centre Nassau street Dublin 2. Reads Sandyford opened in 2007 and since has opened in Stillorgan and is run separately through O’Reilly Mescall Limited.
