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

The signing in was managed very well even though... More

I organised a visit here as best man for my friends stag party. We were so well looked after, for those in the group who were unsure each of the games and rules were explained to them so they were able to play and be involved. We had a private poker table to play amongst ourselves which was great and... More

Spent a weekend in Dublin for my brothers Stag Do - for me the highlight was the Friday night spent at the Emporium. We were well looked after all night (group of 20 - so no easy task I'm sure) and had a great night... Special thanks to Maureen for helping organise.... and Albert on the night.

For 25 euro you can become a member. It was unlike any American casino. They were calling us by name and as long as you are gambling you received free cocktails that are not watered down! Very quiet and private!
