Patrick Doud's Irish Pub

Posted by Nicole Doud on

We wanted to share with you a NEW restaurant that is on Main Street that you need to visit next time you are on Mackinac Island - Patrick Doud’s Irish Pub.
Who was Patrick Doud? Patrick Doud helped make Mackinac’s infrastructure into the island it is today!
“Patrick Doud, Mackinac Island’s principal contractor, has erected more cottages and public buildings on the island than any other.” - St. Ignace Enterprise, April 27,192 
Patrick Doud was born on Mackinac Island on November 11, 1861, the son of Stephen O’Doud and Bridget McCann.  Stephen and Bridget were members of Irish families who immigrated to Mackinac Island beginning in the 1830s. 
Patrick Doud worked on the building crews of some of the most iconic buildings on Mackinac: Wawashkamo Golf Course Club House (1899), the Tootle Cottage on the East Bluff (1900), the Lawrence Young Cottage [today, the Michigan Governor’s summer resident] (1902), and Stonecliffe (1904). 
We are excited to welcome Patrick Doud’s Irish Pub to Main Street, honoring the man who helped contribute to build a number of Mackinac Island structures that are still standing today!
Patrick Doud’s Irish Pub is open daily for lunch and dinner. They are excited to bring classic Irish dishes with a Mackinac flare to Main Street!
