As the name suggests sport plays a major part in the activities and discussions in the pub. It is in the catchment area for the famous John Mitchels GAA club. It is also adjacent to the Austin Stack Park. On match days serious pre-match and post-match debates are played out as accents from different parts of the country make their contributions. Generally the day winds up in a major sing song. It is also popular with the greyhound, horse racing and equestrian fraternities. It is not all about outdoor sport either. The Sportsfield Bar pool tournaments are of a very prestigious standard and attract great high calibre entries from far and near. Between games contestants can relax in the finely appointed beer garden and ponder their next moves.
The interior walls of the bar feature photographs down the years. These photographs are in effect a historical timeline of personalities and events in Boherbee. They take you on a nostalgic walk down memory lane as they document the famous characters that passed its doors and recall the tremendous social and cultural events that occurred on these premises. Having your photograph on the wall is living proof that you entered “The Sportsfield Hall of Fame”….. a badge of honour indeed.
Despite all the activity customers make plenty time for convivial and inclusive chats. Mighty debates on all kinds of topics have taken place with some insightful contributions and some legendary statements being made.
The great selection of drinks, the outstanding pint of Guinness and the great company therein set the tone for a most satisfying experience in The Sportsfield Bar.
