Welcome to the Casino Marino

We are now closed for the winter season, re-opening spring 2024.

The Casino was designed by Sir William Chambers in the late eighteenth-century as a pleasure house for James Caulfeild, 1st Earl of Charlemont. It is widely acknowledged as the most important example of neoclassical architecture in Ireland. The Casino is operated and managed by the Office of Public Works. Only 10 mins from Dublin’s city centre, the Casino offers guided tours at 10am, 12pm, 2pm and 4pm or school and group tours at 11am, 1pm and 3pm. The Casino is only accessed by guided tour. You cannot book a ticket online. To book your place on a Casino guided tour, call us on 01 833 16 18 or email us at casinomarino@opw.ie
