“Fun night out”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

We went to the casino after a days racing at Punchestown. Very friendly and helpful staff. Register online before you go and don't forget to take your passport or ID. Free drinks all the time you are there and great staff who explain how to play. Worth a visit.

“Was very inviting even as a visitor from another country.”
Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

After a long day of site seeing we were looking for a relaxed evening at something other than a pub. We saw a flyer for this place at the tourism center and decided to take a look. You have to become a member but it is very easy and only takes a few minutes.

We decided to play in a hold'em tournament and had no problem getting in. While waiting we played blackjack. Both dealers we had were very friendly and helpful. When the tournament started it was well set up and ran without a hitch. The tournament director made everything very enjoyable. Drinks were consistently offered during the entire tournament and during the break there were free sandwiches and pizza available, which was great.

This is not like a casino in las Vegas. It is smaller than any I have been to but that just made it feel more personal and classy.

It was a great place to spend 6 hours and I will definitely be returning whenever I am back in Ireland.

“Great corporate night-out”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

We went to the Emporium casino for a company night-out and organised a poker tournament for 25 people there. My director and I were delighted with the evening. Everything was very well organised, the dealers really nice and patient and we all had a great night. Maureen who was the person looking after us was very professional and understanding. This is a pleasure to work with people who do well their job like they do.

“A great hen party night out”
Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

This was a great venue for a hen party with a difference. Many thanks to Maureen and her great customer service, organizing our whole evening including the champagne on arrival, the roulette & blackjack lessons & to Alex who minded us from our arrival and to Gary on the blackjack table who answered all our questions no matter how silly! Everyone had a great evening in the lovely and very friendly surroundings. The hen went home with winnings & we'll definitely be back.
