About us

Welcome to The Collins Press website with our complete catalogue of available titles and forthcoming books. The Collins Press is an independent publisher based in Cork in the beautiful south of Ireland. Founded in 1989, it publishes a wide range of non-fiction books of Irish interest. Our interests as a publisher are not limited to specific subject areas. Our assessment of a book's worth is based on the quality of the writing, how well it engages the interest of the reader, and whether it has new, interesting or original material of Irish interest.

Our published books* should be available in all good bookshops. If not, booksellers can take a special order for any book(s). It helps if you can quote an ISBN. You can also order through our website, which has an ordering facility. Our books are available from major 'etailers' such as Amazon but these can take longer to fulfil an order.

Some of our books are also available as eBooks from major etailers worldwide. Kindle users in the UK should visit www.amazon.co.uk. Kindle users elsewhere (including Ireland) should visit www.amazon.com. Our eBook distributor is www.vearsa.com

Thank you for visiting our website and we hope you have found something of interest.
