Tucked away off the malahide road, it may be hard to find for tourists. But if you are interested in architecture it's well worth the visit. The guided tour is really interesting and thought the house is small the interior is beautiful. If you've a couple of hours to fill its well worth the effort to see.

It's in a part of Dublin removed from other places of tourist or hitorical interest, and the banality of the surrounding buildings mar the experience, but I have not seen a piece of miniature architecture in Europe more outstanding than this. What you see on the outside does nothing to prepare you for the wonder and ingenuity of the interior.... More

This is a guided tour of a little house used by Irish aristocrats back in the days. The history of its use is very interesting. The place is a little difficult to find, we had to take a taxi, and the grounds are not developed. But still a nice place to visit, if you dont mind the inconvenience of gett... More

An architectural gem, so full of interesting rooms beautifully presented to the public by the Office of Public Works.

We went to see this on Culture Night and it was nice to see. There is not much to see, though the talks were interesting, hearing about the family and the changes to the estate over the years

Located right outside the center of Dublin, the Casino Marino looks pretty cool from the outside. In order to see the inside though, you must do a guided tour. When we took the guided tour, we found the tour guide to be un-impressive, and the inside of the house itself didn't have too much to see. The tour guide explained... More

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
