Ah, Sunday. A day of rest, getting ready for the week, and of course staying up until 4am to watch two American football teams battle it out for a big trophy, a championship ring, and a trip to Disney World. That’s right: It’s almost time for Super Bowl Sunday. And there’s no better way to enjoy the Superbowl than enjoying the Superbowl in Dublin.
American football is always a subject of confusion for most non-Americans. Everyone always asks: “Why is it called football if their feet never touch the ball?” or “Who is Tom Brady? Why do we care?” I can’t offer the answer to the first question, and as for the second, all I can say is, he’s not in this one, so don’t worry about it.
Whether you’re a hardcore American Football fan, curious to see what all the fuss is about, or looking for an excuse to drink beer and eat hamburgers and watch Shakira and JLo until the wee hours of the morning, here are the best places in Dublin to watch Superbowl 54: Kansas City Chiefs vs. The San Francisco 49ers.
