Surprising building and brilliant tour guide. A must for all Dubliners!

I've lived in Dublin for 6 years and the Casino was always on my radar to visit but the location is really out of the way with not much else in the area to see. I really regret... read more

I've lived in Dublin for 6 years and the Casino was always on my radar to visit but the location is really out of the way with not much else in the area to see. I really regret this now as this is probably the most interesting building in Dublin and the guides really bring it to life with their... More

Myself and my wife have just visited the casino for the first time. We have been living in Dublin for 8 years and I can't figure out how we haven't gone before. The tour is excellent. The guide is the person who really makes this a wonderful experience. She had so much knowledge and passion for the building. What a... More

This is an absolute gem, regarded as one of the finest 18th century neo-classical buildings in Europe. It can be regarded as an optical illusion as it appears to be one story when in effect it a total of 16 finely decorated rooms.

The Casino Marino seems to be one of those "off the beaten path" type places for tourists. Go off the beaten path for this one, folks - it's a fascinating piece of architecture and it deserves more attention than it receives. On the outside, it seems like a tiny, one-room building, but go inside and discover the many rooms (yes,... More

Little known and visited, deserves so much more. It is presented very well and gives you a new view of the time.

My family visited the Casino in Marino by chance last bank holiday Monday. So very delighted that we did. This place is an absolute architectural gem which has been lovingly restored and presented by the OPW. Our guide was just fantastic, well informed and most engaging. The interior of the building is most deceptive with 16 rooms housed in what... More

This was my second visit and whilst I enjoyed both visits the guide this time was so enthusiastic and passionate, she just exudes love for the place and it is the most amazing palladian building I have ever seen

The guides here are very informative and very friendly. It is a lovely place to visit but not really suited to very young children. A inconsiderate couple with a lovely child made it difficult to enjoy and hear our guide by letting the child run around and make noise.The place is well worth a visit especially if you have an...

We had difficulty finding the entrance to the Casino, signage could be a lot better - however we were not disappointed with the building or our guide. Admission costs were very manageable - €4 per person entitling us to a 45 minute tour. Interesting features such as deceptive windows and main door (all original), wonderful hardwood floors, silk wall coverings... More

I have been passing by the Casino in Marino for years and only recently visited with my wife and son. It is a very interesting place with many unique and quirky architectural features. It demonstrates what you can do with a spare €30million, as it would be in today's money! The guide was excellent and very enthusiastic. My wife and... More
