♣ Crime Fiction set in Ireland ♣ #BingeReadSeries #crimefiction #bookseries

It’s almost the end of March, and as my small way of celebrating everything Irish I thought I’d highlight 20 crime series set in Ireland.  I normally participate in “Reading Ireland Month“, but this year, due to being away for half the month, I opted out.

The Cormac Reilly series by Dervla McTiernan

The Inspector Tom Reynolds series by Jo Spain


The Detective Lottie Parker series by Patricia Gibney


The Katie Maguire series by Graham Masterton


The Nora Gavin series by Erin Hart


The Inspector Devlin series by Brian McGilloway

The D.S. Lucy Black series by Brian McGilloway


The Dublin Murder Squad series by Tana French


The Dr. Kate Pearson series by Louise Phillips


The Jack Lennon investigations by Neville Stuart

The DCI Serena Flanagan series by Neville Stuart

The Sean Duffy series by Adrian McGinty

The Paula Maguire series by Claire McGowan

The Cathy Connolly series by Sam Blake

The Jack Taylor series by Ken Bruen

The D.S. Claire Boyle series by Sinéad Crowley

The Quirke series by Benjamin Black

The Joe Swallow series by Conor Brady


The Dublin Murder mysteries by Valerie Keogh

The Maureen Lyons series by David Pearson

Have you read any of these series?
Which do YOU recommend?

Are you intimidated by a series that has more than four or five books in it?

    Great post Lynne. I had planned on reading a few for Reading Ireland month, but had committed to some other reads so did not get to them. I have read at least one from the Cormac Reilly and Lottie Parker series. I enjoyed them both and want to read more.


  4. I don’t usually read series, but the ones in Ireland sound good.

  7. Great lists!
    I’ve read all of the Cormac Reilly and Sean Duffy series, both of which I’d recommend, plus some titles from a few of the others.

  8. Hi. In a related subject: my wife and I have been watching the Sherlock series that starred Benedict Cumberbatch. Have you seen it? It originally was on the BBC. Pretty good series. Very lively and well-acted. I have trouble keeping up with the plots, though!

    I’ve read a couple of these (The Cormac Reilly and Cathy Connolly series) and enjoyed them both but my favourite by far is the Tom Reynolds series.
