I organised a work night out for our company based in the city centre. Maureen was very helpful in helping us choose the best package deal, (which includes membership, you must be a member to enter). We had a lesson in blackjack and roulette from very friendly and helpful croupiers. Then we played for real for a few hours and... More

I organised an evening at the Casino as part of a hen weekend. Maureen was amazing for helping to sort everything prior to us arriving, she was really patient and also told me other great places to visit in Dublin. The casino itself was a brilliant night. Everyone was very accommodating, taking time to give us lessons on the different... More

We arranged a stag weekend to Dublin and one of our nights out was at the Casino, from start to finish the whole evening was a great experience. The staff had a super attitude and the practice games gave us all a great insight. Great place , lovely people super fun.

7.30pm Friday night and the place was empty. I have to assume it gets busier later but spent 30 minutes and left. No staff at all downstairs. Unlikely to return. mpo
