“A must visit for locals and visitors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

wow wow wow and shame on me for never previously visiting this marvellous Irish treasure virtually on my door step. What made the tour so rewarding ... The fantastic OPW guide, a lady whose name I can't recall. Her passion for history, architecture and her love of the Casino ... She oozed passion for sharing her knowledge. You can easily walk around the Casino for free but for mere few schillings get the tour .. I called in on spec and would suggest booking if you have a group. While we got started about 6 or 7 other people came along also.

This building is the only one Casino that has survived so you can visit the website for all the details but I would strongly encourage locals and visitors alike to take a tour ...about 10 mins on a bus from city centre. Tour lasted about an hour.

Closed through March 2014.

Well done OPW guides and the OPW security who secure this national treasure 24 x 7.

“visit”

I rally like the place it left me with a sense of wonder. Love the insight into mind of designer. It has so many quirks in the nooks and crannies. Great tour. Great space around for walking being outside.

“Unique Building”

The building is so unique and unusual. The tour is really informative and highlights things you would never see on your own from the outside

“well worth a trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Great tour of this most unusual venue with a good story behind it. Not a gambling venue as the title might allude to but a "peculiar" story well worth hearing and feeling
