St. Patrick’s Day news from the pub and the library

Barry’s Old School Irish, 2 West Main Street, Webster. Officially one of the best Irish pubs in the country.

In honor of today being St. Patrick’s Day, this little bit of news that many of us already know. Barry’s Old School Irish, at 2 West Main Street in the village of Webster, is officially one of the best Irish pubs in the country.

In a recent ranking published by Foursquare City, Barry’s came in at #18 on a list of the best Irish pubs in America.

It’s big news for the pub, drawing stories from Channel 10, Channel 13, and the Democrat and Chronicle.

This latest achievement follows in the footsteps of another survey released by several days ago, in which Barry’s Old School Irish landed at #45 in a list of the top 50 pubs in the United States for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day.

The pub has been celebrating the holiday all week (when they didn’t have to close for the snow), and the fun continues today with a special lunch, traditional Irish music jam session with the Fox Hunters from 3 to 7 p.m., corned beef and cabbage dinner, Irish dancers at 7 p.m., music by Gavin Barry from 7 to 10 p.m., a bagpiper at 9 p.m., a free Tullamore Dew Irish whiskey toast at 9:30 p.m., and Guinness giveaways all day.

And another one bites the dust.
