Boylesports Review | Bookmaker Guide | Free Bet

Boylesports was founded in 1982 when it opened its first betting shop. It’s grown significantly since then, and still stands as one of Ireland’s leading online bookmakers.

The Boylesports site provides a solid and reliable all-round service, offering a relatively large array of sports, topped off with a regular selection of promotions.

Signup Promotion

Boylesports offers a £25 free bet bonus for new online customers. It’s limited to one bonus per household.

The signup promotion works the same as many other Bookmaker free bets — which you can learn about in our post: How Free Bets Work.

How to Claim


Fast Payouts

Boylesports pays out faster than the majority of other online bookmakers. It’s regarded by many punters as a ‘hassle free’ bookie.

Decent Range of Bet Types

While Boylesports doesn’t offer quite as many markets as some bookmakers, there’s still plenty of different bets available per event.

Best Odds Guaranteed

Boylesports offer Best Odds Guaranteed on all their Daily UK & Irish Racing. However, this does not apply to bets placed at ante-post odds, tote bets, combined horse bets or bets on International racing.

Note that the maximum payout to any one customer in relation to any Boylesports offer or concession (this includes Best Odds Guaranteed) is €50,000 per customer per day.

Frequent Promotions

Aside from the signup bonus, Boylesports keep things exciting by offering weekly promotions to existing sportsbook customers. This often involves popular upcoming horse racing and football events.

Familiar Website Layout

While the Boylesports site lacks a truly outstanding modern design, it’s still great to use. It’s very similar to previous iterations of William Hill, Betfred and Paddy Power — a formula which worked for a decade, without the need to upgrade.



Live Streaming for Horse Racing Only

Live streaming is only available for horse racing — not any other sports. This places Boylesports behind some of their competitors.

Average In-Play experience

In-play betting is adequate at Boylesports — but the transition of visualisations (e.g. “dangerous attack” in football) doesn’t create a great sense of what’s happening in a game. A richer, more detailed in-play mode would enhance the experience.
