17 Places To Watch The Superbowl In The City Centre


YES, we know it’s an American sport, and YES we know some of you think that the increased interest on these shores points to some massive decline in our native culture.

But we don’t care.

We’re all geared up for Superbowl 50 this Sunday night, and we love the fact that more and more places are now choosing to stick up the showdown on their big screens.

The showdown between the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos kicks off at 11.30pm – and here are 17 places in Dublin where you can catch it.
