“Best casino in Dublin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Such a welcoming place, whether you're a beginner, expert, or just fancy blowing your savings one a one-night only extravaganza there'll be someone willing to help you out. We first went on a Groupon deal and because none of us had played blackjack before and it was a relatively quiet night, they set up a table especially for us and taught us how to play with fake chips first. The staff are great craic and not stuck up or patronising like in so many other casinos. Free drinks while you gamble and they also serve food in the evening.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Visited here at the weekend for my 21st. Enquired beforehand and had a great response. Front of House staff greeted us personally and registered us quickly. We were all new to this and the staff sat us down at a separate table and showed us what to do, always made sure we had a drink and understood everything. When it came to actually playing we were a little intimidated playing on tables with 'regulars', but someone always came over, spoke to us and reassured us. Had a great experience, couldn't ask for more!

Thank you for your positive review. It's good to hear that you had a great 21st weekend with us. All our staff understand that it can be intimidating especially for first timers to sit at a table where everyone seems like they know what they're doing so we always try to make sure that new members are looked after so they can enjoy the experience. We hope to see you again soon when you come visit Dublin!

“Nice way to end a good night out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This venue has great facilities, and is very centrally located. You will need photographic ID to gain entry for first time. It is a fun way to end a great night out in city centre.
