In 1973, Kennys opened the Seán Desmond Gallery in New York and in 1974 Gerry Kenny opened the Book Bindery in Salthill. Regular trips to the States during the eighties saw Kennys appointed the Irish supplier to the Library of Congress which led to Kennys supplying over 300 US Libraries including Harvard and Yale Universities. In1994 Kennys became the second bookshop in the world to go online…. The recent relaunch of www.Kennys.ie, with over 5 million books and Free Delivery Worldwide on every title, makes Kennys one of the largest independent book sites in the world today. A gift wrapping service has just been added so customers can send gifts, with a personalized note, directly to loved ones at home and abroad for Christmas.
n 2000 Kennys opened an office in Tokyo to take full advantage of the growing Asian market. January 14th 2006 was the last day of bookselling in High St before the Bookshop moved to the Liosbán Retail Park where the tradition of book signings, book launches, art exhibitions and demonstrations, music recitals and charity events continues in the vibrant family business.
