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.

This beautifully restored garden pavilion is in the middle of an open piece of grassland. Well worth a visit for anyone interested in eighteenth century architecture and the history of the area. Bonus is a great view out to the hills around Dublin Bay.

If you love architecture and history, don't miss this place. It's well worth a visit. The guided tours are great, you leave the place with so much information.

Very easy to find in the Dublin suburbs and with free parking. Thousands of Dubliners pass this place every day and don't even know it's there! Built as a party room and an escape for the local lord it was a place to meet his mistress or so the story goes. The building once looked out over the sea but... More
