Next President Of Ireland Odds – Former Teflon Taoiseach Bertie Favourite
We have the next President of Ireland odds for you here at BoyleSports as there is a familiar name favoured in the betting.
Ireland’s current President Michael D. Higgins was first elected to the office all the way back in 2011. Higgins went on to seek a second term and win the 2018 election by a landslide with 55.8% of the vote to remain in office.
An Irish President can only serve a maximum of two terms which means that in two years’ time, we will have a new President of Ireland. In this post you will find all the favourites to take over the Áras including a former Taoiseach.
Next President of Ireland Betting Favourite
The favourite to be the next President of Ireland is Mairead McGuinness at 4/1 who is a Fine Gael party member. McGuinness is currently serving in the role of European Commissioner for Financial Stability, Financial Services and the Capital Markets Union. She has been in that role since October of 2020.
The native of Drogheda, County Louth has an incredibly impressive track record to her name. McGuinness started out her political career back in 2004 when she was elected to be a member of the European Parliament.
The 63-year-old is now Ireland’s longest serving MEP and has also served in the role of First Vice-President of the European Parliament. McGuinness will be a force to be reckoned with if she does decide to run for President of Ireland in 2025 given the strong track record she has behind her.
On the other side of the pond there is another former head of state among the favourites to become president.

Next Irish Presidential Election Betting Favourites
Mairead McGuinness is now the favourite to become the next President of Ireland in 2025 at 4/1 odds. But who else is in contention for the role according to the latest betting odds?
The second favourite in the betting to become the next President of Ireland is Fergus Finlay at odds of 7/1. Finlay has strong ties to the Labour Party having previously sought the party’s nomination back in 2010 to run for President in 2011.
That nomination was instead awarded to a man by the name of Michael D. Higgins who would of course go on to win the Presidential Election and is still President to this day.
The 72-year-old has served as Chief Executive of Barnardos in Ireland, a charity which helps protect vulnerable children, for 14 years. As the most likely nominee of the Labour Party Finlay can’t be ruled out of winning the 2025 Irish Presidential Election.
“Tubs” is only a week removed from finishing up his fourteen-year term presenting The Late Late Show and The Late Toy Show from 2009-2023 and is already being priced at just to 8/1 to be elected the next President of Ireland with BoyleSports.
Ryan has been an integral part of the Irish Media landscape but on radio and television since 2004 working on RTÉ 2fm presenting “The Full Irish” and the Saturday Night show “Tubridy Tonight” among some of his more prominent roles throughout the years.
Despite spending years attempting to ask politicians and prominent figures the toughest questions, Tubridy himself is not without his political connections. His grandfather was former Fianna Fáil TD Seán Tubridy (1897–1939). Furthermore, two of his first cousins, Barry Andrews and Chris Andrews, have also sat in Dáil Éireann as Fianna Fáil TDs
Fianna Fail TD Willie O’Dea has even thrown his weight behind him and says he thinks he could be a ‘talent’ for their party.
Miriam O’Callaghan has been tipped for some of the biggest jobs for years, most recently she was the early favourite to take over from Tubridy as Late Late Show Host before pouring cold water on that idea but she remains to 12/1 to be elected the next President of Ireland with BoyleSports.
Her experience like Ryan is in media a company she has worked with since 1993 she currently presents Prime Time a show she has presented since 1996 on television along with Sunday with Miriam on RTÉ Radio 1.
Miriam is another with connections to Fianna Fáil with her brother Jim O’Callaghan currently TD for the party in Dublin Bay South and the parties current spokesperson for justice matters.
