Our Story


Fine Dining

Established by Liam and Kim Dolan in 1983, the Claddagh Room was named for a fishing village in Galway City in Ireland. Offering fine dining of the style that was popular at the time, the Claddagh Room and the Olde Dublin Pub upstairs (est. 1985) were instrumental in turning Sydney Street from a relatively untravelled side street to a key Charlottetown food destination.

Renamed Claddagh Oyster House in 2006, the reinvigorated restaurant now focuses on fresh, local ingredients and casual fine dining, featuring world renown Island oysters and Certified PEI Beef. The results of our partnerships with Prince Edward Island farmers and fishers is evident in every bite.
