About Books Ulster

Books Ulster began as a general second-hand bookshop in Belfast in 1987, later moving to Bangor, County Down. In the early 1990s it was transformed into a mail order business, specializing in books relating to Ireland, with a particular focus on the history of Ulster.

In 2014 the emphasis changed from bookselling to publishing, mostly historical reprints, and to the digitisation of texts into ebooks and for use on websites.

Books Ulster is the sister site to Library Ireland.
