Bailey & Pim

By August 7, 2019Cafes

Bailey and Pim is a unique dining experience: a modern twist on the charm and beauty of a Victorian coffee house in  Greystones Train Station.

Our staff of highly-trained baristas are here to advise on your drink of choice. Crafting a variety of selections to order—from flat whites to filters—we use our own specialty coffee and tea ranges.  Lunch & brunch options include gourmet sandwiches and homemade soups.  Our bakery is always whipping up creative cakes and desserts. Inspired by the time-tested recipes of the past, these artistic treats pair perfectly with a hot drink.

We celebrate a long history and some remarkable people:  The Baileys and The Pims.

The Pims have long been associated with Dún Laoghaire, formerly known as Kingstown. Famous for their role in bringing the railway to Kingstown, the Pim family shaped the history of this beautiful Victorian seaside town.  The Pim sisters, Isabella, Charlotte, and Jane, were known far and wide for their hospitality and charitable work.Their friend, Wellesley Bailey, travelled through Kingstown Harbour in the early 1870’s on a life-changing voyage to India, where he first met patients with leprosy. In 1874, the Pim sisters invited Wellesley and his fiancée, Alice, for tea in their living room. Wellesley told them tales of people forced to live in isolation because of this cruel, disabling disease. The compassionate Pim sisters were determined to help and in 1874, with a pledge to raise £30, The Leprosy Mission was born. The vision of Bailey and Pim lives on. Now known as The Mission to End Leprosy.   At Bailey and Pim, we pay homage to these extraordinary visionaries of the past. All of our profits are donated to The Mission To End Leprosy, continuing the work of Bailey and Pim who once frequented 87 Lower George’s Street.
