Although a little out of the center of Dublin, well worth the journey there. The building itself restored beautifully, and the tour guides very knowledgeable. Most certainly an interesting part of Irish history, and well worth the visit.

How regrettable the tour guide did not pay more attention to the Illuminati elemends all over the casino at Marino. It could be so much more interesting to tell the full truth!

This is one of Dublin's lesser known gems but is well worth the short trip out of the city centre to see it. The house which fell into disrepair at the beginning of the 29th century has been beautifully restored by the Office of Public Works and despite its small size - it was built for entertaining and showing off...

i would reccomend this place as it is small but precious- its one of the very few example of classic architecture in Dublin very well maintained, lovely floors and wall decorations. worth a guided visit to understand the history not only of the man who built it but also of the north side of dublin

This is an example of a neoclassical building. Interesting architecture that has been partially restored to its original glory--no original furnishings or art. Only access is by tour, and this limited to certain rooms. New tunnel tours really are misleading--you enter a 15 foot tunnel--it is much larger and partially excavated to what appear to be baths but public not... More

Gosh what a hidden gem - architecture, art, science, philosophy, history...all rolled into one little house. Our guide was amazing - interesting, knowledgeable, informative, engaging - go, you won't be disappointed. I don't want to say anymore because like someone else said, I don't want to spoil the surprises within.

A one hour tour around this 250 year old building. Iconic to any north side Dubliner, the Casino is well worth a visit and now has some of its tunnels open to visitors.

If you have any interest in Georgian life or architecture make sure you make the trek and take the house tour. The building is actually a pavilion and not a home, but what a pavilion! It was reminiscent of places like the Royal Pavilion at Brighton, albeit less grand. A bit out of the way but easy enough to reach... More

it used to be a famous mansion but in my opinion it does not worth a visit. There are other places which are much more interesting
