Boylesports is one of the most popular choices of bookmaker for residents of Ireland and this Boylesports review will cover why that is.

Firstly, Boylesports is Irelands biggest independent bookmaker. It was founded by Irishman John Boyle back in 1989 and since opening his first betting shop in Markethill, Co. Armagh, Northern Ireland, the company has expanded to over 300 different locations across the UK & Ireland with its headquarters based in Dundalk, County Louth.

Boylesports is a household name in Ireland, not just because of the brands' presence on the highstreet, but also due to the sponsorships it has with major sporting events and teams. Over the years, Boylesports has sponsored horse racing events such as the Punchestown Festival and Irish Grand National, football teams Birmingham City, Coventry City and Sunderland AFC as well as the PDC Darts competition, and the World Grand Prix.
