The Superbowl and American Football in general has seen a huge surge in popularity over the last few years. We’ve gone from a few specialised bars showing one big game a year, to most of them covered over a dozen or so pubs who show them on a weekly basis.
Here, we’ve put together a list of some of the best places to watch the game. We try to include as much detail as possible, including whether you need a ticket or not.
McGowan’s are devoting their whole top floor to the Superbowl party. They’re usually a late bar anyway, and they’ll be staying open for this one. They’ve got 16 screens and free hot dogs at half time.
This is a very good option if you live anywhere on the southside, want to watch the game, but don’t want to travel too far to get home. McSorley’s in Ranelagh is a great spot for sports. They’ve got 3 big screends and 12 HD tv screens. They’ve got a good craft beer selection and they’ll be serving hot dogs all night. Event link.
The Adelphi on Abbey Street ave been showing the NFL since they opened last year. It’s a good central spot, serving gourmet hot dogs for the match. They’ve got 6 screens and pitchers for €12.
The Boars Head is a fine pub on Capel Street. It’s a small place, but that just means a more condensed atmosphere for all the sport they show. They’ll have the game live on their 2 screens.
