For architecture and architectural history fans, this is one of the world's must see attractions. Small in size, this Neo-Classical gem just outside Dublin is well worth a visit. More properly called the "Casino at Marino", it is not a gambling establishment, but a small house built in 1760, as a "party house" or reception pavilion for the then wealthy... More

I had been meaning to visit this attraction for years. It is a hidden gem, costing only 2 euro as part of a group and the guides are just great. We had a tour lasting over an hour and heard so much history of the area. For anyone interested in architecture, this has so much to offer. It is full... More

If you have any interest in architecture or design, this is a must see building! On first encounter it is as if it has just landed from space but it is completely of its time. The tours are very good often much more than the suggested 40 mins and inexpensive at around 3 euro for adults. From my experience each... More

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.

This was my second visit my first was 8 years ago while studying interior design in college...so the first tour was purely about architecture and the interior....I can't remember the guide then going into detail about the history of the man himself ..I certainly don't remember the use of it as been for serious business I thought a folly was...

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.
