1. Paddy Power


€250 Free Bet

Paddy Power

Paddy Power needs no introduction to Irish punters! If you don't already have an online account with Paddy, it's probably because you live right beside one of the many green bookmaker shops dotted around the country and prefer getting a physical betslip that you can show off to your mates just as your winning horse crosses the finish line.

Apologies if you simply haven't gotten around to opening an online account yet, but if that's the case then you should absolutely do so now. Paddy Power have come a long long way since their transition from brick and mortar bookie to one of the best operators in the online betting industry!

Paddy Power score highly across the board, whether it’s their competitive odds, the vast range of markets on a whole host of sports or their excellent award-winning customer service which is available on a 24/7 basis. They also have a generous €250 free bet offer available for new customers which is easy to qualify for.

Our biggest Irish bookmaker constantly strives to offer bigger value than their competitors (probably shouldn't  mentioning any names here, but the rivalry between Boylesports and Paddy Power is great to watch), so you will see them paying out each-way on six places for events like the Grand National, the golfing majors and several other sporting events throughout the calendar year. They also have the moneyback specials which ensure that you get your stakes refunded if a particular player scores last in a soccer match. In short, they are an excellent bookmaker and it’s hard to find a fault.

To get an amazing €250 in free bets from Paddy Power which is not available if you visit paddypower.com directly, simply open a new account today.

2. Boylesports


€20 Free Bet


Boylesports have been Ireland’s leading independent bookmaker with over 20 years experience in the gaming world.

For the majority of the past 10 years much of the focus in Boylesports has been on growing their retail base as they now have more than 175 betting shops in the Rep of Ireland. It must be said that their shops are industry leading giving customers a relaxed and friendly environment to place their bets.

They recently added to this retail base with the acquisition of 17 William Hill shops as well as numerous Celtic Bookmaker outlets.

However, as the retail grow, their online presence failed to move at the same speed. With several issues on their new platform and failed moves into the European market, question marks grew over the future of Boylesports.

This now seems to have changed and with their latest release of their new site as well as an excellent new Mobile App, the future looks bright once again for Boylesports both in Ireland and the UK.

Their continued sponsorship of the Football Association of Ireland (the FAI) and many Irish race meetings – including Punchestown Festival, Leopardstown and Dundalk races – shows Boylesports are aiming once again to rival Paddy Power in the bookmaking game in Ireland.

3. William Hill


€25 Free Bet

William Hill

William Hill are one of the world’s most popular bookmakers, having been established nearly 100 years ago and remaining a constant piece of betting industry furniture ever since. They offer a first-class betting service across a range of sports and the number of pre-match and In-Play betting markets available tends to surpass their competitors. 

The homepage continues to be a bit chaotic with the number of links and menus that are available, although the rest of the site is well-structured and the live streaming that’s offered to their customers reaches out over several sports.

William Hill is now one of the most exciting online gaming brands in the business.

  • Very simple and easy-to-use website interface 
  • A strong reputation for being safe, secure and well-established
  • The live streaming is free for all William Hill Customers
  • The range of pre-match and In-Play markets is outstanding

4. Sky Bet


€10 Free Bet

Sky Bet

Sky Bet is a good bookmaker for their English customers but they don't have much focus on their Irish audience. They have an excellent product when it comes to soccer in both England and Europe with competitive prices and their transfer specials are fantastic.

However we were disappointed to see even a lack of a win-draw-win market for many of the Irish GAA matches (instead just pricing Outright Betting). The opposite seems to be the case for the League of Ireland betting with odds for each game available but no sign of an outright market for the league. 

Saying all that, their sign-up offer is a no-brainer and if you are interested in making a few quid on the transfer market specials then Sky Bet is the only place to bet.

  • Irish customers get €10 free bet no deposit + €50 in free bets.
  • Their range of Transfer specials for the Barclays Premier League is unrivaled.
  • Easy to use website making finding your bet very simple.

5. Coral




Coral are one of the leading players in the UK betting industry and will also appeal to customers overseas thanks to their diverse offering of sports and related markets. They are extremely competitive when it comes to odds and have one of the most user-friendly websites in the game due to a massive improvement on their previous offering.

Coral also do In-Play particularly well, especially the way that the various markets are laid out when you visit this section of their site. It’s a little disappointing that they haven’t yet evolved to having 24/7 customer service yet, although they are quick, friendly and helpful when it comes to resolving queries and their free bet offer is one of the most generous in the industry.

Stan James are a likeable bookmaker who have a no-frills but well-presented website which allows customers to place bets fast at great prices. They have built up a solid reputation within the betting industry over the past few decades and were one of the first firms to offer In-Play betting, although they are somewhat behind many competitors in terms of what they now cover live.

Nevertheless, it’s hard to fault this bookie on the sports and markets that they do provide, while Stan James have really come into their own in recent years due to their fantastic cashback promotions, which included refunding losing outright bets on the World Cup after Spain won the tournament. They now regularly run with similar offers and they also have lots of early prices available for horse racing, not to mention the fact that all UK and Irish racing is streamed live on the site.

Many of the promotions are original, such as their Hole in Won golf offer which pays out on any player that shoots an ace at a particular tournament.

BetVictor also have a strong In-Play service which means that many customers use them as a one-stop shop for placing pre-event and live bets on a daily or weekly basis. You won’t have to wait long to be paid out by this bookmaker when you back a winner and we rate them very highly.

10. Unibet


€20 Free Bet


There are plenty of good reasons to become a Unibet customer, especially if you like betting on UK and European football. The Swedish-owned company are very smart to recognise the increasing popularity of football, ensuring they cover a multitude of leagues with a plethora of markets. They bet to tight margins, so it’s definitely worth checking their prices before committing to a bet. The same applies across many pan-European sports such as tennis, basketball plus many sports that are popular in Scandinavia like ice hockey.

The website is clean and crisp, while the In-Play console is as dynamic as anything else out there. These guys mean business with their product offerings and their commitment to 24 / 7 customer service in a whole host of languages.

  • Thrilling In-Play experience on a wide range of events
  • Strong level of customer service

11. SportingBet


€50 Free Bet


We would recommend Sportingbet for several reasons, although the main one being their excellent In-Play betting service. You will do well to find a time when they aren’t covering something live on their site, with the range of sports and markets also strong in this department. 

It’s amazing that this firm have grown so much in a short space of time and they are thriving all over the world thanks to the fact that they have successfully translated the site into so many languages. As a result, you have a global bookmaker with a huge range of sports to select from and tight margins across the board.
