Having always thought that Marino Casino was a small monument I was blown away to discover it is an architectural tardis. This building has three floors and such a clever design that this is hidden in its external appearance. I'm surprised this is not a more well known attraction. Our guide was fascinating and had a huge wealth of knowledge.... More

Visited during Open House Weekend. House is a stately home in miniature. Plenty of information provided to complete a self guided tour. Pauline who gave us the tour of the tunnel had great knowledge of the history of the house. Great views to the Dublin mountains to the south.

Stopped by on a recent trip to Dublin. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the Casino Marino. The history, architecture and design of the building is very interesting. Even though it is off the beaten track for most tourists, it is well worth the trip to stop by this very interesting and unique place.

The casino is near to where my cousin lives so on a wet Sunday in September, we decided to visit. There are tours on the hour at the weekends and the admission fee is only €4.00. We weren't sure what we to expect especially as the building doesn't look very big from the outside but wow, it's a different story... More

Went to see the casino last Sunday with my family, what a surprise. Our guide richard made it very interesting and we learnt many new things about architecture, the area and dublin city. I would call it a hidden gem and if you like buildings its definitely worth a visit!

If you are visiting Dublin and have an interest in historical architecture then this exquisite Neo Classical building is an absolute must, it certainly was on my bucket list and the joy of experiencing the interiors of these perfectly balanced tiny rooms surpassed my expectations.

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
