A photographic tour through Barry’s Old School Irish history

5 Nov

Barry’s Old School Irish is celebrating its 10th anniversary Saturday night.

There’s not much more I can say about this little Irish pub which I have not said before. How Barry’s has changed the face of Webster. How Barry’s has positively affected so many lives. How Danny and Jessica have become like family.

Several weeks ago I took my most recent stab at putting my feelings into words when I posted this preview of Saturday’s festivities. I have struggled since to come up a different way to note this remarkable occasion.

What I came up with is this photo retrospective from the last ten years. They begin with a shot of the unsightly bulding before Danny and Jessica purchased it, when the plumbing shop was still in business. There are photos from every anniversary (except #9, which didn’t really happen during the pandemic) and several special events, and concludes with the beautiful pub we have come to know and love.

Here are some thoughts from Danny and Jess, taken from the Facebook event page.

Jessica and I are excited to celebrate the 10 Year Anniversary of Barry’s Old School Irish with everyone!

This little Irish Pub is special for so many reasons. A dream of ours to open after honeymooning in Ireland, which became a reality at 20 and 24 years old. We’ve brought 3 crazy kiddos into this world since the year we opened Barry’s- our kids have quickly gained MANY aunts and uncles from our community. We are so thankful to all those who call Barry’s home and are blessed to have made so many wonderful friends that have become family to us. We’ve shared a lot of lasting memories together in these 10 years, now let’s make a few more on November 6th during our Anniversary Party!

Here are some details, but you can find more information on the event page:

• 7 to 10 p.m.: live Irish Music by Sean & Sarah of Barry’s Crossing! They were our first ever musicians to play at the pub, and for a long time were the “house band.” They haven’t played together in a long time, and are reuniting for this performance.
• Irish Whiskey reps. in with samples & give-aways
• Irish Dancers in to perform
• Give-aways from Guinness, Proper 12, Magners, and more
• Bagpiper making an appearance

Barry’s Old School Irish is located at 2 West Main St., in the Village of Webster.
