Gill & Macmillan is a publisher based in Park West, Dublin, Ireland, and is a publisher of non-fiction and educational books in Ireland. It is a member of CLE, the Irish Book Publishers' Association.


In 1856, Michael Henry Gill, printer for Dublin University, purchased the publishing and bookselling business of James McGlashan, and the company was renamed McGlashan & Gill. In 1875, it was renamed M.H. Gill & Son. In 1968, the company became associated with the London based Macmillan Publishers (founded 1843) and Gill & Macmillan was established.


Gill & Macmillan mainly publishes educational books for school and college students. They also publish a range of general interest non-fiction titles including the annual best-seller Money Doctor finance guides.

As well as handling its own published titles, Gill & Macmillan also handles the warehousing and distribution for a number of Irish-based publishers, including O'Brien Press.

Gill & Macmillan also runs, an online learning resource aimed at Irish second-level students. They also have a series of online tests designed to accompany many of their educational books, covering a growing list of secondary school subjects.
