Our tiny team works long and hard to bring you subscription boxes full of the best books, finest chocolate and luxurious gifts from around the island of Ireland. We insist on only the best of the best Irish products to meet our [and your] high standards when it comes to gifting.

Even our packaging is made in Ireland - something rare these days when it comes to subscription boxes!
Where did the idea for a subscription box company come from?
Life can be difficult to navigate and there is nothing quite like having something to look forward to at the beginning of every month. It is a similar feeling to experiencing Christmas morning 12 days of the year. Our story behind why we started creating subscription boxes is quite unique.
Our founder, Aisling, was always a huge reader. Like the rest of us she adored beautifully created Irish chocolate and she simply wondered if it would be possible to combine both into a business. From here The Book Resort Subscription Boxes were born. It was difficult at the beginning to see how a simple idea such as this could grow and expand at a rapid pace - but that is exactly what happened. We now have an amazing community of subscribers who message us on a daily basis to tell us how much they love the beginning of the month when their subscription box arrives! This is what keeps us moving and makes us work harder everyday to bring the absolute best gifts, books and chocolate that the Irish market has to offer!
Happiness Amid a Global Pandemic
We are still a young company and when the pandemic hit, we thought there may be a bigger demand for our subscription boxes. Amid our work one day a regular subscriber of ours messaged us on our instagram page and phrased what receiving her Book Resort subscription box during her period in isolation as ‘happiness amid a global pandemic’. Since then we have expanded our team, built new premises, created more meaningful relationships with new and old suppliers and harnessed a loyal subscriber base who love to chat about all things subscription books in our book club.
Why you Should Become a Book Resort Subscriber
We wholeheartedly believe that our subscription boxes are a little slice of happiness in the month. We try to make the process as simple as possible because we understand how difficult it can be to treat yourself to something so personal and luxurious! For this reason you can always pause your subscription box, cancel your subscription box at anytime or change the payment date, if you have already read the surprise book we send you we will swiftly send you out a new one and on top of that you can be in with a chance of winning a complimentary subscription box if you share your subscription box on instagram and tag us!
On top of all that we provide free shipping to Ireland (including the north of Ireland) and you can even purchase a gift card from us if you’re looking to subscribe on someone else’s behalf [what an amazing friend you are!]. We ship on the first of every month and so our subscription boxes tie seamlessly into the fresh start a new month has to offer twelve times a year!
