Whilst Boyle Sports aren’t the largest bookmaker in the world, but they are in fact now the largest independent bookmaker in Ireland and one of few companies that still promote phone betting as an outlet. The company itself was formed in 1982 and since then has seen a steady rate of growth throughout the betting industry.

Boyle sports have been known for sponsoring a host of sporting events and even teams from across the UK and Ireland. Most notably in 2007 they teamed up with Sunderland AFC to be their main shirt sponsors on a four year contract. On top of that they have sponsored a number of horse races including the Boyle Sport International which is widely recognised as the richest hurdle race behind the Champion Hurdle.

Looks and feel

The Boyle Sport betting site is compact without ever really having that wow factor. Whilst navigation and usability of the site is actually quite good, aesthetics wise leaves a little to be desired to be honest. In terms of design the site doesn’t really offer anything new to the industry.

Having said that what we do like are there drop down menus in the side bar making navigation really easy and viewing markets simple and effective. In terms of design there’s little going for it and with the gambling industry being as competitive as it is, the site fails to really stand out.


New customers can enjoy a free bet of up to £20 when you register a new account. All you need to do is register a new account, deposit and your first bet of up to £20 will be matched and credited to your account in the form of a free bet.

Ok top of their welcome bonus you can also take advantage of some of Boyle Sports promotions including best price guaranteed on all greyhound and horse races. This means that if you take and early price or a board price on any race and the starting price of your dog or horse, then Boyle Sport will pay out on the higher starting price.


What Boyle Sport possibly lacks in design, we feel it makes up for in features – which some would argue is more important. The first one we are going to look at isn’t necessarily to do with certain sports or markets, but it’s there betting news section. Basically throughout this section they keep you up to date on news from around the gambling industry – including sport related – before then tying the article into their betting platforms. A simple concept but one few bookmakers actually do.


The Boyle Sport site is a solid betting portal and will suffice the majority of user’s needs. What we look for is diversity in our betting sites, aspects that one site offers that another doesn’t. Unfortunately Boyle Sport fail to add anything really innovative to the online betting world, of which we feel is a little disappointed of Ireland’s biggest independent bookmaker.
