Visit this wonderful cafe with amazing pot pies. A Temple Bar neighborhood gem! Leslie, the Pieman Cafe manager, was very welcoming. There is indoor seating for a perfect lunch as you tour Dublin.

I highly recommend the beef and Guinness pie! It had delicious flavour both inside and the pastry. I loved the gravy on top too.

Really surprised how quiet it was at around 5pm on a Saturday night so close to Temple bar centre. Pie mash and gravy really hot the spot. Well recommended.
