Best Boozer In Dublin? Paddy Power To Host World Cup Of Dublin Pubs

Leigh Copson:

Paddy Power will hold the first ever World Cup Of Dublin Pubs on Wednesday – but which one will be crowned the best boozer in the Irish capital?

The format is quite simple – the 16 pubs have been split into four groups of four and over the course of the day Paddy Power’s Twitter followers will be able to vote for what they think is the best pub in Dublin!

You can also bet on it because Paddy Power’s “bored of their minds” traders have used their apparent wealth of knowledge to price up the World Cup Of Dublin Pubs field, with The Long Hall the early 6/1 favourite ahead of the 7/1 Palace Bar (Fleet Street) and Kehoes!

The first poll will be held at 9:30am and three more polls will be held to determine the four finalists.

The road to World Cup glory will then culminate by 4:30pm, when the ‘world champions’ will be crowned (if America can proclaim NFL winners world champions then our pals in Ireland can certainly crown an Irish pub a world champion)!

To take part in the voting process all you have to do is Tweet the name of the pub you think will win using the hashtag #WorldCupOfDublinPubs, and should you successfully pick the winner via social media you could receive a prize because Paddy Power is giving away £25 free bets to three people who correctly pick out the winner.

And of course, to bet on this epic contest you just need to head on over to the Paddy Power website, log into your account or register for a new one, and then place a bet of up to £20 on the market, with all winnings to be paid in cash.

So which Ireland pubs are in the running? Here are the runners and riders:

World Cup Of Dublin Pubs: 6/1 The Long Hall, 7/1 The Palace Bar (Fleet St), 7/1 Kehoes, 8/1 McDaids, 8/1 Grogans, 9/1 Mulligans (Poolbeg St), 10/1 Cassidys (Camden St), 11/1 Devitts, 12/1 Toners, 12/1 The Blue Light, 14/1 Nearys, 16/1 The Boar’s Head, 18/1 The Swan, 20/1 The Gravediggers, 20/1 Doheny & Nesbitt, 20/1 Fagans.
