“Sneak a pie in!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

Delicious.
Great pies. Great service from a young lady who was charming and funny.
She pointed out the medieval sculptures on the front of the building, which are worth looking at.
If you are looking for a quick meal without all the pomp and ceremony of a restaurant, it's perfect, delicious and great value for money.

“Great food at a great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

My friend and I loved eating at this little place. We had both a savory pie for dinner and a sweet pie for dessert due to the reasonable prices. The service was provided by a sweet Swiss woman who chatted with us while we ate.

“Amazing Pies!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

We looked this place up before we even went to Ireland. We knew we wanted to try it. He is located in the small town amongst all the shopping and cafes. You walk inside and it is very classic and tiny and has that real charming feel. we ordered one of the ones with the beef in it. it was mouth watering and the potatoes and peas were a great touch of flavors to compliment the pie. will definitely be going back again next time we are in ireland!!

“Charming place, delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

What an amazing little find in Galway! I had so much food and we all kept ordering. The spinach and feta pie was delicious and full of flavor. The coffee was really good and comes in a really big mug. The desserts are also delicious.
Everything about this restaurant is cute, from the decor, to the plates and mugs which look custom or hand made. The waitress was also super friendly, and for someone who only works there part time, she seems to love being there and was genuine and friendly to talk to.

Very recommended, have all the courses there!

“Perfectly Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

The Pie Maker doesn't make an overt play for the tourist / visitor trade. it's not on the "main drag," nor easy to find -- but it was one of the highlights of our visit to Galway. Delightful sole operator kept things humming in the tiny, intimate, quirky-decorated space. The pies were delicious; the welcome, even more so. Please take the time to seek this place out when you're in Galway!
