Barry began his career at Shelbourne in 2005 but moved to Kildare County in 2006 without having made a first team appearance. He spent two and a half years at Station Road, making over 60 league appearances, before moving to Monaghan United in July of 2008.

Three seasons at Monaghan turned him into something of a goal-scorer, netting ten times in the league and impressing with his creative wide play.

In January of 2011 he signed for a second spell at Shelbourne under Alan Mathews. Barry made 21 league appearances over the season as the Reds won promotion to the Premier Division. He also played in Shelbourne's FAI Cup final team, being controversially sent off as they lost to Sligo Rovers after a penalty shootout. Barry spent one more year at Shelbourne, making 16 league appearances in 2012, before signing for Roddy Collins at Athlone Town for the 2013 season.

Barry played in 26 out of 28 league games for Athlone Town as they won the 2013 First Division title. He scored one goal during the league campaign but it was an important one as it secured a 1-0 win over Longford Town. He re-signed for the 2014 season under new manager Mick Cooke and went on to make eighteen appearances for Athlone as they were relegated from the Premier Division.
