One of Brunswick’s most popular watering holes will reopen this weekend after spending the past several weeks repairing water damage from a broken pipe.

Byrnes Irish Pub, which is located next to the Amtrak train station, will hold a grand reopening event Saturday, according to an announcement posted by its owner, Joe Byrnes, on the restaurant’s Facebook page.

In mid-February, the restaurant had to be shut down after a water pipe burst in a vacant space on the second floor of the building Byrnes Irish Pub occupies. About 4,000 gallons of water flooded the pub’s kitchen, bathrooms and office area at 16 Station Ave., which is part of the new Maine Street Station complex.

After the accident, Byrnes vowed to reopen by St. Patrick’s Day, March 17. Byrnes, a native of Brooklyn, New York, opened the Brunswick pub – he also owns and operates a Byrnes Irish Pub in Bath – on St. Patrick’s Day in 2010.

“We are very excited to announce we will be reopening at 12 noon this Saturday, March 12,” Byrnes wrote on Facebook. “Join us for a grand reopening ribbon cutting at 3 p.m. and performance from the Maine Public Safety Pipe & Drum Corps at 4 p.m.”
