An excellent choice for lunch or dinner.

I would highly recommend The Pieman for a lunch or dinner. The wait staff was awesome, service was quick. The pies there are savory and a well thoughout combination of flavors. The crusts are flaky and take to the gravy well. This place will definitely give you value for the price and is on my list... read more

I have to say that this is an EXCELLENT place to eat! The second I walked in and smelled that delicious smell, I knew this was the place to eat! This is such a cool place, it's minimal in style and that appealed to me big-time. The atmosphere was really relaxed, no hustle and bustle. The lady serving was really... More

Wonderful little shop with the best pies! Mine was chicken, leek and cheddar. They also had lamb and other wonderful kinds. Recommended by a store owner around the corner in Temple Bar. You can't beat the suggestion of a local.

Oh my god. This little place in the heart of Dublin City served pies made from heaven. The owner was a delight to talk to. We were set up for a night on Temple Bar. 🍀🍀

The photo says it all. My wife and I were both in the "Clean Plate Club". We each had "the Ploughman" pie... With mash and gravy- it was ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS . I'm thinking of going back tomorrow to try something else. Mmmmm The owner was quite personable - you could tell he loves making these pies and serving others .... More

We stumbled upon this pie shop since my boyfriend spotted it. It was so good, with a range of pies for offer, the waitress was attentive and the food was amazing. Would recommend for a lunch, not sure what the atmosphere would be like for dinner, as it is quite small inside. The shop itself is very casual, and reminds... More

Great pies at a good price right in the heart of temple bar!! Lovely, friendly service in a cute little eatery. The choice of pies is great, covering most of the usual suspects, but with some extra magic, with zingy ingredients and personal touches. I had to go for beef and Guinness, and it came with a generous portion of... More

The pies in this place are just subpar, especially compared with the (now vanished) Pieminister, which really used to make my day. The ingredients aren't of the highest quality, and the pies can be a bit dry and not the most flavoursome. The mashed spuds weren't very tasty and were a bit on the lumpy side for my taste. Still...
