Boylesports was founded in 1989 and is now Ireland’s largest independent bookmaker, operating over 150 high street branches, as well as the “Fon-A-Bet” telephone betting service and online gaming services.
One of the Boylesports specialities is UK and Irish horse racing. Few online sportsbooks offer as comprehensive a racing service as Boylesports, who also have a partnership with At The Races which allows racing bettors to stream live races on their computer. Outside of racing, the Boylesports offering is broad enough, though there is understandably a clear emphasis on Irish sports.
Product Range Rating: 4 / 5
Boylesports have a friendly 24 hour Live chat service, as well as email and telephone support, the latter of which is free to customers inside the UK and Ireland. Customer support is one area where Boylesports excel.
Support Rating: 5 / 5
Boylesports don’t offer a particularly attractive sign up bonus, but they do at least have a few promotional goodies, such as Best Odds Guaranteed on their horse racing, as well as the occasional money back offer for certain losing bets. This is one area where Boylesports could certainly improve.
Bonuses Rating: 2 / 5
Fans of mobile betting won’t be disappointed by the Boylesports Android and iPhone apps, though the main Boylesports website feels cumbersome at times and isn’t especially pretty to look at. That said, it is fairly well stocked in terms of betting news and statistics, and Boylesports do offer a fair amount of live betting markets.
Technology Rating: 3 / 5
Boylesports are not quite up to the standard of main Irish competitors Paddy Power, but they do represent a solid, reliable addition to your online sportsbook portfolio, especially if you like horse racing.
