Before I visited, I thought this site would be too small to hold my interest for long. However, the building is fascinating and the tour guide brought its story to life brilliantly. A new favorite OPW site definitely, if only for it's hidden complexities.

One of my favourite buildings in Dublin, if nor Europe. Georgian perfection in all it's splendor. A gem with stories attached. This Georgian Follie that literally broke the bank of Lord Charlemont is all that remains of his once glorious Demesne. Exterior is symmetrical, but reveals secrets inside, is that a real window or fake? You'll just have to go... More

I visited the Casino last year and really enjoyed my time there. It seems much smaller that it is from outside. It is full of nice stories and details in the decor and architecture. There's a nice grassy space around the Casino and if the weather is ok you can get nice shots around.

In my opinion this is the best monument to visit in Dublin. And not too busy. I was in a private visit. It was amazing. If you have time just to see one thing in Dublin, it should be Casino at Marino .

Visited about 10 years ago - a faux classical tardis - must have had great craic back in the day - loads of tunnels underneath - guide very informative - liked the pineapple chimneys and the cow skull motifs (replicated on Ulster Bank Building, O'Connell St.) - lots of masonic/occultish decorations - highly recommended!

We visited the Casino as a Family Group - the inside of this structure is fascinating and the history behind it equally so. The outside of the building is also amazing and needs to be studied carefully - you will understand why when you visit the attraction.

It's bigger than you think. Beautifully proportioned, materials chosen with due care. Looked after with pride and love.

This is a must to visit this building which is steeped in history. Architecture is extremely interesting and in some cases holds meaning and interpretation is amazing. One ceiling area has a dome area that seems to go on forever without an accessible end. The architecture and building design by today's standard would be amazing let alone in those days.... More

OK, so Dublin has so many top class places to visit, this one can easily be missed, but that would be a shame. For people staying in town more than a couple of days, or making a return trip, it's something different. You learn what it is for a start .. this is NOT a casino in the way you... More
