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

I don't want to say too much about this building as I don't want to spoil the surprise. It is well worth visiting and the guide was excellent. Beautiful building and interesting story of the man who built it.

I'd learned about the Casino Marino in Art History in school but never had the chance to visit it until this year, it was not disappointing. It's a lucky building to have survived all these years.... There's a story behind it's survival, I won't ruin it for you 😇 It's a bit of a pain to get to it with... More

Casino Marino was an unexpected highlight to our trip. Sometimes the hassle of getting to sites makes the journey difficult, but the Casino Marino has easy on site parking. The tour guides are not only knowledgeable about the amazing neoclassical architecture, but also about the history of the era. The tour was so interesting and informative!
