Great Pen Stores - Europe - Ireland
The Pen Corner
12 College Green
Dublin. Tel: 679-3641
Dublin's fountain pen specialist since 1927 and the Pen Corner sells all types of writing instruments. Calligraphic supplies, artistically designed writing cards and stationery, and Irish art postcards. The store is located a short walk from Trinity College. The selection of journals is reported by reasons to be impressive. (Thanks G. Harris, J. Hubbard).
A recent review gives good insight into the store -- My wife and I stopped into The Pen Corner on a rainy Irish morning and found the store without other customers at that moment, which freed the proprietor to spend extra time with us. I was searching for vintage pens but quickly found that he only carries new ones – and a really great selection of fine brands. Despite that, he talked with us for quite a while, suggesting some antique shops that might have vintage pens and marking their locations on my map. In addition to pens and ink, he carries a large selection of fountain pen friendly journals, some handmade in the UK for him, stationary, and cards. The store is conveniently located very near Trinity College. I highly recommend that any pen person visiting Dublin be sure to visit this store. (Thanks, John Hubbard, Huntsville, Alabama)
