Prince Edward Island's Original Irish pub
The Olde Dublin Pub has its origins in Galway, Ireland. That’s where Liam Dolan grew up on a farm and later professionally trained in the culinary arts. Not long after, Liam came to visit his brother Tony in Prince Edward Island. Like many others, Liam fell in love with the place, and sensing a little bit of Ireland on the Island, decided to open the Olde Dublin Pub.
That was in 1983, and over the years, Liam’s intuition that PEI was ready for a traditional Irish pub has proven to be correct in spades. The ODP has been one of the Island’s primary go-tos since opening, and that’s a tradition that shows no sign of stopping.
With his legacy in mind, Liam passed ownership of the ODP to Kent Scales and Kent MacPhee in 2018. Today, The Kents keep Liam’s tradition of good food and good times thriving. Not only is it the Irish way, it’s the ODP way.
Chef Mitchell Jackson
A graduate of the Culinary Institute of Canada here in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Mitchell has been in the kitchen of some of PEI’s and Canada's finest restaurants. Mitchell returned home to the Island where he was Executive Chef at Dalvay-by-the-Sea and in the kitchen at Sims Corner Steakhouse & Oyster Bar before joining us at the Old Dublin Pub.
Here, Mitchell works with fresh, local ingredients wherever possible to give an ODP spin on Irish and East Coast classics.
