I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and guided tour of Casino Marino. Incredible value for money and the grounds surrounding the building make for a lovely relaxing stroll. The staff are friendly and efficient. Its a pity there was no giftshop. Each room has its own character and as the tour progressed, I just wanted to get out on the roof... More

I visited the Casino after having lived in Dublin for 50+years and I was a little disappointed, mainly because it is rather small and bare. It is certainly a beautiful building, and the guides are knowledgeable, but there just isn't that much there. It is worth a visit, but not if you are stuck for time.

Great atmosphere and good customer service. Enjoyed the cleanliness, control of access into the property and the urgent attention from staff.

Have to say the OPW never fail to amaze me with the quality of their work and again here with the tour and guide. Very interesting local attraction and with the promised coffee/tea facilities it should continue to be one of the top northside attractions.

I couldn't believe we'd never heard of this building on our doorstep and with the very knowledgeable friendly guide it makes for a very interesting visit. if your looking for somewhere different to visit for a few hours go here.

I paid a visit to the Casino in Marino as part of a group recently and I must say I was amazed at all it contained inside and out. I have often passed by car and wondered what was "inside" those gates. Beautiful building and interesting history of the area. if you are from North Side Dublin you will really... More

Have always been really keen to visit here as am a Dubliners fan and have always loved John Sheehan's composition - The Marino Waltz Agree - it is tricky to find - better sign posting is required - well worth the effort though. It really is a hidden gem. Perhaps could have the Marino Waltz playing to add to the... More

this is one of Dublin's hidden gems….located a few miles from the city centre…..there is a stunning exhibition in here at the moment - plates designed and painted by 38 artists and designers….its such a special place…there is literally nothing like it in the rest of the country….

This little building is full of wonderful surprises. Four of us visited today and found it a real treat. The guided tour was excellent, the architecture great and the history very interesting. The Italian influences make it all the lovelier. The Grand Tour obviously made a great impression! Our visit was great value for money.
