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.

The Casino takes your breath away, and it's worth visiting more than once. Lots of trompe l'oeil stuff which I love. One of my favourite places in Dublin.

Two weeks ago I brought extended family and friends, some visiting from California, to visit the Casino. Our group included two boys aged 11 and 14 for whom the words 'historic building' and 'museum' rank along with 'brussels sprouts' in terms of attraction. But our guide, Melissa was great, she immediately engaged the guys by explaining the roles they might... More

Dublin Council really should post signs from Clontarf Station for unfortunates actually wanting help to find this. It's a trek uphill and rather insubstantial. A folly and quite fun but there's little in it. Not really for devotees of the historical. Some good Ciprisni sketches. Our guide knew too much and was scholarly. You want to enjoy not have a...

This had been recommended to me, by my mother who always raves about it. Unfortunately myself and my OH were a bit disappointed. Maybe it was that some rooms were closed so we didn't see some parts, but you just seem to be in each room for too long. It's small and it's fine, and yes there are very cool... More

I have been living in Dublin all my life (55 years) and had never been to see the Marino Casino until last week. It was simply fascinating. I couldn't believe that such an architectural gem was sitting on my doorstep all my life and I am an Architect!!! The guide Melissa was so informative and entertaining and she made the... More

After several trips to Dublin, this time I decided to visit the Casino Marino and I'm very glad that I did. What an impressive structure! The tour guide was wonderful and so happy to share the building's history and design features. I decided to use the local Dublin Bus system to head out to Malahide Castle (Bus 42 from Eden... More

A little out of the way of the city centre lies this beautiful building, While it looks like a one story building from a distance as you get closer you realise its size. And inside you are shocked to discover how big it actually is. Not quite the TARDIS but as close as you will get in Dublin. Very close... More

A beautiful little building that is physically appealing to the eye. It is a real life version of a tardis, looks small on the outside but bigger on the inside, and the parkland that surrounds it is nice to walk around as well. Our tour guide Dee was wonderfully engaging and was able to answer any question. It is not... More

I suppose it helped that one we travelled here we got to enjoy some extra time in the grounds and the weather was superb which helped the atmosphere considerably but this was something that didn't come into our radar and was very special
