IRONDEQUOIT, WEBSTER, N.Y. (WROC) — The village of Webster will soon have a new Irish pub, in a familiar location with a familiar owner: Shamrock Jack’s has bought the former Barry’s Old School Irish building.

It’s been a “lifelong dream” for Mark Petzing to open a “small” Irish pub, even though he already manages Shamrock Jack’s. But Petzing believes this new space in Webster to be his dream place.

A friend of his was going to buy it, then pulled out, allowing him to buy the building. Shamrock Jack’s in Sea Breeze has been around for over 20 years, and he looks to take the best of Shamrock Jack’s to Webster.

“Music, fun, storytelling, laughter, a lot of good things, going forward I’m going to take a lot of that with me, but it will be separate,” Petzing said. “Shamrock Jack’s is always going to be Shamrock Jack’s, my heart is always going to be there, and I’m still going to be there, but this is a new venture for my wife, myself, and possibly my boys someday.”

He admits the timing is far from ideal, as they are prepping for St. Patrick’s Day. So he doesn’t have a name yet for the place in Webster, but he knows they will be gutting the building so he can start from scratch.

Petzing says an optimistic timeframe for opening is around 6 months.

Meanwhile, Shamrock Jack’s big holiday is right around the corner.

“Smiles on people’s faces, and the organized chaos, the music is great, it’s just fun, it’s a lot of fun, that’s the bottom line,” he said.

Shamrock Jack’s will be open for St. Paddy’s Day festivities Thursday through Sunday, and will be offering a special breakfast the day of.
