A must see for anyone visiting or living in Dublin the Casino at Marino is a hidden gem of a building. Deceptively small from the outside it's only when you step inside the door that you are transported to another world. Beautiful (and clever) architecture makes this little house appear so much larger on the inside, lovingly restored and preserved... More

Finally having driven past the Casino for years I went to visit. I love architecture which is a bonus but this place is fascinating. The guide was brilliant and really knew and loved his subject. I would recommend this to tourists and Dubliners alike. It is a hidden treasure on the outskirts of Dublin.

Delightful tiny posh house that we visited perhaps 5 years ago. Don't imagine it has changed a lot since then. The date of visiting is not correct.

Lived in Dublin for years before I became aware of the Casino in Marino. And when we finally visited we weren't disappointed. The building is incredibly interesting and the tour guide was great, really made it come alive. Great symbology, smart architecture and lots of little quirks that make the tour very entertaining for adults and kids. Well worth it!

A truly unique piece of history and architecture only 15 minutes by bus/DART from the city centre. It's vwell worthwhile to stop off here on your way to another destination like Malahide or to make a trip here for its own sake and visit nearby Fairview Park and the seafront at Clontarf.

How did I miss this treasure until now? I've lived in Dublin most of my life, had heard the Casion was something special but never got around to visiting it. I won't go into detail - I'd only be repeating what other reviewers have posted - but it's an absolute delight and worth the effort of getting there. Our guide,... More

Every first Wednesday of the month the OPW grants free access into all of its sites nationwide. This month I decided to visit the oft-overlooked Casino at Marino. Originally designed as a 'pleasure house' in the 18th century this bijou palace, containing 16 superbly proportioned rooms, transports us back to the 18th century with its restored decor and furniture.
