The OLBG Story

Established in 2002, Online Betting Guide began as a guide to the best betting sites and latest offers with information to help sports bettors place bets online.

Irish Sports Bettors Welcome

OLBG was established in 2002 in the UK where it established itself as a comprehensive guide to the best uk bookmakers whilst growing its community. The site is popular throughout the world, particularly in Ireland, USA, Canada & Australia

Irish sports bettors have always been welcome at OLBG and make up a good part of our amazing community. All prize money available on is also available to Irish citizens and can be withdrawn via Paypal or Skrill. We do list the prize money in £ sterling but naturally it can be converted to Euros via the withdrawal method of your choice. 

Irish sports are covered with specific tipster competitions for GAA and Irish Racing. Irish Horse Racing tips of course count towards the overall Horse Racing and Horse Racing NAP tipster competitions. Each year OLBG runs a popular Cheltenham tipster competition and millions visit the site to find the best Cheltenham tips. 

Irish Football is available to tip on with tips taken on the League of Ireland Premier Division. Tips contribute to various overall football tipster competitions.

Irish Bookies & Casinos

"Let's Beat The Bookies" became a strapline which resonated with both those who seek out our great tips content and those who provide it. Sports bettors do need good Irish betting sites, betting exchanges and spread betting sites to bet with so with our users help we have also built some great content to help people to choose the online betting sites which are best for them. 

For Irish users we list the popular bookmakers available to bet online with in Ireland. We take into account their coverage of Irish sports in our reviews. On the Irish Free Bets page the offers are listed in Euro and many of these are specific for Irish customers. 

Our regular sports bettors share their knowledge and real life experiences of online betting sites by adding real user reviews and discussing them on the forum. There are now over many licensed bookmakers in Ireland.

The popular Paddy Power and Boylesports are finding plenty of competition as UK and European bookies have tried to gain a share of the Irish online sports betting market.
